This discussion is part of the Sir Martin Gilbert Churchill Conversations series. We hear from Emma Soames, granddaughter of Sir Winston, and the authors, Rachel Trethewey and Catherine Katz about the young women who supported their father. Winston and Clementine had four daughters, Diana, Sarah, Marigold (who sadly died in infancy) and Mary. What was it like to be one of the daughters of the most famous man in the world and to find yourself playing a role on the global stage? How did these very different sisters react to the pressures, what were their unique contributions and how should they be remembered?
