Baillie Gifford Tent, Sun 1st July 11:30 - 12:30 (60 mins)

Roaring crowds, rehearsals and dress fittings, fainting fits, furtive sips of brandy and Scottish toffees from the Privy Purse, these are amongst the memories of the Maids of Honour chosen to accompany the Queen on her Coronation Day. Lady Anne Glenconner (then Coke, middle left) and Lady Rosemary Muir (then Spencer-Churchill, far right), two of the six women who filled this important role, will give a scintillating insight into their experience of this historic occasion. In conversation with Hugo Vickers, they will also talk about growing up at Holkham Hall and Blenheim Palace.
