My Grandparents War – Helena Bonham Carter

Part of the series My Grandparents War, Helena Bonham Carter went in search of two remarkable grandparents – Lady Violet Bonham Carter and Eduardo Propper De Callejon, to find out their war stories.

Here Helena returns to the family home in Royaumont, near Paris, accompanied by her second cousin, David Pryce-Jones.
