During this interview, Bruce Oliver, host of the Cruise with Bruce show interviews Michael Chaloner, a historian for the Cliveden House in Taplow Birkshire England. The Cliveden dates all the way back to the 1600's when the 2nd Duke of Buckingham built the original House on the terrace. It was built as a hunting lodge to entertain mistress and friends.

Over the centuries it has been maintained as a Manor House and Hotel for everyone from Buckingham to the Duke and Duchess of Sutherland,Duke of Westminster and most well known to people in the United States William Waldorf Astor and his son and wife Waldorf and Nancy Astor.
