The beaded necklace Geraldine Somerville (Lady Emily) wears during the scene in which her character reads a letter from her son, who is at Eton, is the same necklace Kate Beckinsale (Emma Woodhouse) wears when she sings with Frank Churchill at Randalls in _Emma (1996)(TV)_.

Geraldine Somerville, who was the principal actress playing the second Lennox sister Emily, appears in the background as a mourner in the scene where Lady Caroline and Mr. Fox are talking at a funeral in the first episode of the series. At this point in the story, the character of Emily is a child so Geraldine was available as an extra and the casting directors didn't think anyone would notice.
