At the age of 88, Queen Elizabeth’s cousin Lady Mary Coleman, who was the former maid of honor of Princess Alexandra, died.
Queen Elizabeth’s cousin Lady Mary Coleman, a frequent guest of the Queen at Sadringham and Balmoral Castles, died on January 2 at her home in Norfolk, where she lived with her husband Sir Timothy Coleman, reports the Daily Mail.
She is a relative of Queen Elizabeth on the maternal side – the daughter of the Queen Mother’s brother, Captain Michael Bowes-Lyon, and his wife Elizabeth Margaret Kator.
In addition, Lady Mary had a twin sister, Lady Patricia Bowes-Lyon, who passed away in 1997.
Lady Mary’s husband, the businessman Sir Timothy, belongs to the world-famous Colman Mustard family. The Queen’s cousin married him in 1951 at the age of 19. The wedding ceremony was attended by Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, and Princess Margaret.

In 1970, Lady Mary was appointed as an additional maid of honor to the Queen’s other paternal cousin, Princess Alexandra of Kent, daughter of the fourth son of King George V and his wife Mary of Teck. By the way, Princess Alexandra turned 84 on Christmas Day, December 25.
Like Queen Elizabeth, Lady Mary adored dogs. All her life she had Jack Russell Terrier dogs.
