Queen Elizabeth II: Maid of honour at Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation dies night before Her Majesty’s funeral

On September 18, Lady Mary Russell, one of the six maids of honor at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, died at her home at the age of 88. When asked to speak on Coronation Day, she said six girls had been chosen to wear the Queen’s 21-foot train. She felt lucky to be one of them. The anointing was an incredible moment and at that time she was contemplating heavy embroidery. It was a big deal for her and that moment was overwhelming.

Six maids of honor for the coronation

The Queen’s coronation in 1953 had six maids of honor.

  • Lady Mary, daughter of Haddington’s Earl and Countess, is the second maid of honor to die.
  • In 2020 Lady Moyra Campbell passed away.
  • Lady Jane Lacey, Lady Rosemary Muir, Dowager Baroness Glenconner and Baron Willoughby de Eresby were the other maids of honor.
  • All groomsmen were required to wear ornate silver gowns with long gloves.

Angela Kelly, the Queen’s assistant and dresser, said she has a close relationship with the Queen. Like typical women, they discussed clothing and jewelry. The Queen had an excellent sense of humor and mimicked everyone, including Angela. The Queen liked her and trusted Angela as she was the one making decisions, but the final decision always rested with the Queen.
