The Final Curtsey

The Final Curtsey (Paperback)

The Final CurtseyMargaret Rhodes was born into the Scottish aristocracy and royalty often came to stay and she spent childhood holidays in Scotland with her cousins Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret. In the Second World War years she ‘lodged’ at Buckingham Place while working for MI5. 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, until her death in 2002. 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.
