The Viscountess of Weymouth has shared a glimpse at her lavish life as the wife to the heir to Longleat House in Wiltshire.
Emma, 32, married Ceawlin Thynn, Viscount Weymouth, 44, in 2013, and the pair live in 130-room Longleat House Ceawlin, with their two young children.
The philanthropist and chef splits her time between London and the sprawling Elizabethan stately pile in Wiltshire’s famous safari park Longleat with her husband, the son of the 7th Marquess of Bath, and their two sons, John, 4, and Henry, 1.
And the mother-of-two’s Instagram account, to which she shares regular updates with her 30,000 followers, boasts a life of opulent dresses and glamorous dinner parties in the mansion’s stunning rooms, contrasted with wholesome days exploring the wildlife park, and helping to feed the 500 animals spread over 9,000 acres.
Emma, who will become a marchioness when her husband assumes the title held by his 86-year-old father, Alexander, gave birth to her first child, the Honourable John Alexander Ladi Thynn, in October 2014.
In December 2016 she welcomed his little brother, the Honourable Henry Richard Isaac Thynn, via surrogate at a private clinic in West Hollywood.
The couple revealed at the time that their choice of surrogacy was the result of a terrifying brain illness suffered by Emma during her first pregnancy in 2014, which prompted doctors to warn that having a second child could kill her.
‘It was one of the most incredible gifts I could ever receive,’ she previously told the MailOnline.
‘I’m so grateful. It is a miracle to have Henry, my second beautiful boy, here in the middle of Wiltshire via California. I have been asked by so many people about it, and I cannot recommend it more as it gave me my second son.
But she revealed she is keen to keep her sons grounded, and previously said: ‘It’s important for them to be exposed to a variety of friends and experiences.
‘They go to school in London [the family divides its time 50/50 between Longleat and the capital] where they meet folk from all walks of life. I think that’s the key.’
Emma’s pictures show that she regularly enjoys nights out with the likes of Lady Kitty Spencer, who is godmother to one of her children, Vogue British editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, and Made In Chelsea’s Mark-Francis Vandelli.
Emma grew up Emma McQuiston in Kensington, daughter of English socialite Suzanna McQuiston and Chief Oladipo Jadesimi, a Nigerian oil magnate who gave her away at her wedding.

Emma also shares frequent pictures as she enjoys time in Longleat’s Orangery, hosting friends for afternoon tea complete with personalised animal-inspired tableware and dainty porcelain teasets
