Essex Days Out history lesson: (according to Wikipedia) Daisy Greville, Countess of Warwick was a British socialite and philanthropist. Although embedded in late-Victorian British high society, she was also a campaigning socialist, supporting many schemes to aid the less well off in education, housing, employment, and pay. She was a long-term confidant or mistress to the Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VII. She was said to be referenced in the popular music hall song “Daisy, Daisy”,[2] owing to her rather unorthodox conduct.
