On a separate news, Lady Mary Colman has passed away on 2nd January 2021. She was The Queen's first cousin and the Extra Lady-in-Waiting to HRH Princess Alexandra, the Hon Lady Ogilvy.

Biri has posted the news in the British Nobility thread (Post #1426). Thank you Biri for the detailed information in the post. I have also fixed the two links under sources. For some reason I could not access the link beforehand.

Lady Mary served as an Extra Lady-in-Waiting to HRH Princess Alexandra, the Hon Lady Ogilvy, from 1970.

She was born on 30 January 1932 as the second of four children and elder daughter of Captain the Honourable Michael Claude Hamilton Bowes Lyon (1893-1953), of The Royal Scots, and his wife Elizabeth Margaret, nee Cator (1899-1959), scion of that landed gentry family.

A niece of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and a first cousin of HM The Queen, her father was the eighth child and fifth son of the Sir Claude George Bowes-Lyon, 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, KG, KT, GCVO (1855-1944) & his wife Nina Cecilia, nee Cavendish-Bentinck (1862-1938).

The Honourable Michael Bowes Lyon was reported to have watched from the gallery of the House of Commons as the Abdication Bill was passed, thus witnessing the moment his sister became Queen Consort in 1936.

Mary Bowes Lyon, a childhood playmate of her cousins the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, was advanced to the rank of an Earl's daughter, in 1974, following the succession in 1972 of her brother, Fergus, as 17th Earl of Strathmore & Kinghorne (1928-1987).

Mary Cecilia Bowes Lyon married on 10 November 1951 Timothy James Alan Colman (b. 19 September 1929) of Bixley Manor, Norwich, scion of the Norfolk mustard family, and descended maternally from the Adeane landed family.

Her husband was Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk, 1978-2004, and chairman of the Eastern Counties Newspaper Group. He was appointed a Knight of the Order of the Garter in 1996.

She is survived by Sir Timothy and by three daughters Sarah (b.1953), Sabrina (b.1955) & Emma (b.1958) two sons James (b.1962) & Matthew (b.1966) and as well as ten grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. Her eldest daughter, Sarah Troughton, is Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire.
