The Maid Of Honor For Queen Elizabeth II Passed Away Hours Before The Monarch’s State Funeral

On The Eve Of The Monarch’s Funeral, One Of The Maids Of Honor From The Day Of Her Coronation Has Passed Away.

It Was Reported In An Obituary Published In The Times On September 26 That Lady Mary Russell Passed Away On September 18 At Home, Surrounded By Her Family. She Lived To Be 88 Years Old.

Anthony, Philip, And Jason Were Her Sons, And Arabella And Mariana Were Her Daughters From Her Marriage To David. The 12 Grandchildren Who “Dearly Loved” Lady Russell Are Mentioned In Her Obituary.

Lady Russell’s Funeral Will Be Conducted On October 10, And In Lieu Of Flowers, Donations Can Be Made To The National Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Children.

Her Passing Was Preceded By One Day By The State Funeral For Queen Elizabeth On September 19.

Her Majesty, Who Passed Away On September 8, 2018, At The Age Of 96, Was Farewell By More Than 2,000 Guests, Including Prince William, Prince Harry, King Charles Iii, And Queen Consort Camilla.

The Service Was Viewed By 11.4 Million People In The United States Alone.

Although King Charles Regarded The Queen As A Beloved Sovereign And Mother, Lady Russell Viewed Her Majesty As A Friend.

At The Coronation Of Queen Elizabeth Ii At Westminster Abbey In 1953, She Was The Youngest Of Six Ladies Of Honor.

Lady Anne Glenconner, Lady Jane Lacey, Baroness Willoughby De Eresby, And Lady Rosemary Muir Were The Other Five Women; Lady Moyra Campbell Passed Away In 2020 At The Age Of 90.

After The Coronation In 1953, Lady Russell Reflected On The Significance Of Being Chosen To Carry The Queen’s Train Together With Five Other Young Women. “The Anointing Service Was Particularly Emotional And Powerful.

The Incredibleness Of The Occasion Was Overshadowed By My Preoccupation With How Cumbersome The Stitching Was.”

With Hindsight, Glenconner Told The Bbc That The Six Women Were “The Spice Girls Of Their Period” For Their Prominent Roles In The Crowning Of Their Monarch.
