Lady Ursula d'Abo, the daughter of John Henry Montaqu Manners, the 9th Duke of Rutland tells about her life at a book "The Girl with the Widow's Peak" (2014)

Lady Ursula is now 98 years old. At the coronation of George VI, Lady Ursula was a train-bearer to Queen Elizabeth.

"This is the Real Thing, an evocative account of English upper-class life throughout the 20th century. It begins amidst the Edwardian feudal splendours of Belvoir Castle, where Ursula d’Abo spent much of her childhood with her beloved grandfather ‘Appi’. At the coronation of George VI he was a maid of honour to the Queen. During the second world war she worked with 2,000 women making bullets. Postwar life was hardly less varied and amazing, with an other-worldly stay in princely India, and meetings with Nehru. Married life at West Wratting Park and Kensington Square, two beautiful Georgian houses she restored, was followed in her widowhood by five years with Paul Getty at Sutton Place."

"But it was Ursula who was photographed standing behind the King and Queen on Buckingham Palace balcony. Those photographs were printed in newspapers across the globe and Ursula, with her distinctive widow’s peak hairline, became famous overnight. An American magazine published a poem in which each verse began with the line: ‘Who is that beautiful Lady in Waiting?’ Celebrity, however, had never been the Duke’s aim for his daughter. He intended her to marry a man like himself, preferably another duke."

Lady Ursula is the mother of Henry d'Abo, whose wife is Tatjana d'Abo, the sister of Christopher O'Neill, princess Madeleine's husband.
