Lady in Waiting by Anne Glenconner (2019)

This book which is set to be released on 17 October 2019 recounts the life of the author herself Lady Anne Veronica Coke daughter of Thomas Coke, 5th Earl of Leicester. After her marriage to Scottish peer Colin Tennant, 3rd Baron Glenconner, she was later known as 'Baroness Glenconner.' She also was one of Queen Elizabeth II's Maids of Honour at the coronation in 1953.

However, she is really best known as Extra Lady-in-Waiting to Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon between 1971 and 2002.




According to the publisher Hodder & Stoughton, this book 'reveals the real events behind The Crown as well as her own life of drama, tragedy and courage, with the wonderful wit and extraordinary resilience which define her.'

Hugo Vickers also commented, 'Anne Glenconner has written a remarkable memoir – containing, at last, a genuine portrait of Princess Margaret from one who knew her well. But this book is poignant too, and through the pages shine her courage and good-humoured acceptance of her demons and tragedies.’

Anne and Viscount Althorp (later Earl Spencer) were an item until Frances Burke Roche came along.

This book also fascinates me. I mean, anything about Princess Margaret is extremely fascinating.
