The photographs of The Duchess of Wessex shouting at an RPO in the street will never be forgotten, in my humble opinion.

Maria Semenovna Choglokova was appointed senior governess to Grand Duchess Catherine (Empress Catherine II). Maria was to act as the constant companion and chaperone. Maria was Empress Elizabeth's first cousin on her mother's side.

Yes, a cousin of Anna (Catherine's mother in law) and the empress (Anna long dead). Maria's husband was a chamberlain. Maria's devotion and duty as a wife, and fertility (pregnant annually) were meant to inspire Catherine. Catherine hated the woman. In her biography she called her malicious, cruel, un-educated, simple-minded and self-righteous. Maria wasn't popular, considered ruthlessly ambitious. She and her husband were more jailors to the couple than anything. Went on for 7 years.
