Lady Glenconner has spent her life as a friend of the royal family. Maid of Honour at the Queen’s Coronation and Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret, her extraordinary new memoir offers a unique and unparalleled account of major events in royal history. An instant Sunday Times bestseller, Lady in Waiting reveals the truth behind The Crown as well as the drama, tragedy and courage of her own life. For one night only, Lady Glenconner is interviewed by Helena Bonham Carter, one of the most celebrated actors of her generation, and currently starring as Princess Margaret in The Crown.
Taking the nation by storm, her story captures a generation, a social class, and a first-hand view of royal life. Warm, witty and riotously entertaining – but also moving and courageous – Anne Glenconner offers an exclusive insight into the life of an aristocratic woman, and a sense of the volatility that lies beneath the glitter.
From brothels and barons, to growing up with the princesses and meeting her husband Lord Glenconner, with whom she turned Mustique into a paradise for the rich and famous (including music royalty like Mick Jagger and David Bowie!), her astonishing memoir tells a tale of remarkable highs and lows.
Copies of Lady in Waiting will be available for purchase at this event.
