Westminster Election of 1784 despite the fact that she was an experienced campaigner. She, her mother and her sister were known to canvass in the Spencer-claimed, St Albans. A lovely anecdote from one of the St Albans campaigns shows both how at ease Georgiana was with all classes and also why she appealed to so many. While visiting a butcher (how ironic) to appeal for his vote she stepped out of her carriage and tore her shoe so much that it wouldn't stay on, to which she kicked it off and with a smile said, "I gladly serve my friends, even bare-footed."
Smooth as the silk (on her torn shoe), that duchess!
