The Final Curtsey
A Royal Memoir by the Queen's CousinBook - 2012
Margaret Rhodes was born into the Scottish aristocracy, into a now almost-vanished world of privilege. Her aunt was Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth is her first cousin. She was a bridesmaid at the wedding of her cousin Princess Elizabeth to Prince Philip. Three years later the King and Queen attended her own wedding; Princess Margaret was a bridesmaid. In 1990, she was appointed as a Lady-in-Waiting to the Queen Mother, acting also as her companion, which she describes in touching detail. This is a fascinating account of a special life, with the author's family relationships to nobility and royalty, her long and special marriage, her children and grandchildren and a life lived to the full.
