Lady in Waiting

This was such a great iso escape for me. What a difference world! Lady Anne Glenconner has shown me a life where ‘she tried her hardest to be a boy’, one in which ‘she didn’t think to question’, where the qualities of her children’s childhoods where unashamedly down to the right nanny ‘which made all the difference’ and she boasts of her mother being ‘lady of the bedchamber’. I don’t think it was just in the book that she called her lifelong friend Ma’am and while ‘dutifully running all around the garden while being told to spray Princess Michael of Kent’s cats was genuinely glad she didn’t spray her by mistake’! There were some shooting parties that could have come directly from major pettigrew…It is a complete difference world! A completely fascinating read
