Lady Glenconner’s entire life has been intertwined with the British royal family’s. Maid of honour at the Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation and lifelong friend and lady in waiting to Princess Margaret, her extraordinary new memoir offers a unique and unparalleled insight into life in the glare of the royal spotlight. An instant Sunday Times bestseller, Lady in Waiting reveals the truth behind Netflix's The Crown as well as the drama, heart-breaking tragedy and courage of Lady Glenconner's own life.

From brothels and barons, and engagements and exile, to growing up with the princesses and meeting her husband Lord Glenconner - with whom she turned Mustique into a paradise for the rich and famous (including music royalty like Mick Jagger and David Bowie!) - Lady Glenconner's astonishing memoir tells a tale of remarkable highs and lows, and lifts the petticoats on a world off limits.

Taking the nation by storm, her story captures a generation, a social class, and a first-hand view of royal life. Warm, witty and riotously entertaining – but also moving and courageous – Anne Glenconner offers an unparalleled insight, shedding light on the volatility that lies beneath the glitter. Her words could not come at a more relevant moment.

Live on stage in Australia and New Zealand in May and June 2020, don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Lady Glenconner share royal anecdotes in conversation with some very special guest interviewers. 

Copies of Lady in Waiting will be available for purchase at this event.
