Princess Alexandra was born on Christmas Day 1936 at 3, Belgrave Square, her family's London home.

She is the second child and only daughter of the late Duke and Duchess of Kent (her brothers are the present Duke of Kent and Prince Michael of Kent). Much of her childhood was spent at their country home, Coppins, in Buckinghamshire.

Her father was killed in a wartime flying accident in 1942 when she was just five years old.

Palace 'embarrassed' by plight of Queen's cousin
By Chris Hastings and Andrew Alderson - 11/05/2003)

Senior members of the Royal Household conceded last night that the disclosure that Marina Mowatt, the Queen's cousin, is living on state benefits was deeply embarrassing.

They insisted, however, that details of her dire financial predicament could in no way damage the monarchy.

The divorced 36-year-old mother of two, who is the daughter of Princess Alexandra and Sir Angus Ogilvy - who are alleged to be worth £20 million - was reported to be so short of money that she is planning to take her daughter, Zenouska, 12, out of a private school and move her to a comprehensive.

That's a good queston.. I don't think so, as Angus Olgivy isn't a noble, but I'm not completely sure.
Does anyone have any idea?
And has there been any news on them?

What very sad news, especially around the holidays, even if Sir Angus Ogilvy had been quite ill on and off the last several years.
Oh!Very sad year for The Royal Family!They have loosen Princess Alice and now Sir Angus Olgivy.Very sorry for Princess Alexandra and her family.Rest him in peace.
I orginally came here to wish Princess Alexander a happy Birthday for yesterday. But now am greeted with the sad news of the death of her husband. I would like to extend my sympathies to Princess Alexander, James and Marina and his grandchildren.
The Hon. Angus Ogilvy was from a very old and noble Scottish family, I believe his father was an Earl.
Well, that isn't entirely unexpected since he'd been ill for some time, but how sad for the family that he died at Christmas, especially considering how close to Princess Alexandra's birthday it is. And just after Princess Alice's death, too.
What sad news about his death. RIP. My condolences to his family.

Princess Alexandra

The new listing of Royal Engagements shows that just a month after the death of her husband Princess Alexandra will be carrying out engagements. The Princess truly knows the meaning of duty.
Some first pics of the funeral.Camilla also attends.

My Lord! The Queen (first picture) looks really awful here! This is by far the worst picture of her I have ever seen...
I don't think she looks awful,ElisaR.Maybe she looks sad as some of her family members died.
Yes, of course she's sad. But she had a better look in previous funerals.
They all look more sad than usual: clearly Sir Angus was much loved.

Looks like Zenouska Mowatt is wearing one of Princess Alexandra's old hats.
According to this article the funeral was attended by the Queen & Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
I was surprise that Camilla parker-bowles attended the Funeral bec she is with Charles... interesting huh....
