ANNE GLENCONNER My Extraordinary Life in the Shadow of the Crown: A Special Platinum Jubilee Celebration

IN CONVERSATION

In conversation with festival patron CHRISTINE WEBBER

Lady Glenconner is the author of the acclaimed best-selling memoir Lady in Waiting, as well as two murder mystery novels, Murder on Mustique and A Haunting at Holkham.

She was born Lady Anne Coke in 1932, the eldest daughter of the 5th Earl of Leicester, growing up in their ancestral estate at Holkham Hall in Norfolk. A Maid of Honour at the Queen’s Coronation, she married Lord Glenconner in 1956. In 1958 she and her husband began to transform the island of Mustique into a paradise for the rich and famous. They granted a plot of land to Princess Margaret who built her favourite home there. She was appointed Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret in 1971 and kept this role – accompanying her on many state occasions and foreign tours – until her death in 2002. Turning 90 this Platinum Jubilee year, Anne Glenconner – now an international best-selling author – shares what she has learned from her extraordinary and unexpected life.
