Lady Moyra Campbell, Lady Anne Glenconner, Lady Rayne, Lady Mary Russell, Baroness Willoughby de Eresby and Lady Rosemary Muir all attended The Queen at her coronation in 1953 as maids of honour who carried Her Majesty’s train from her coronation robes on the big day on 2nd June 1953.

When Britain’s 27-year-old newly crowned Queen emerged from Westminster Abbey on June 2 1953, she was flanked by her Maids of Honour: six of the country’s most blue-blooded young women, all single, beautiful and, like the Queen, wearing gowns by Hartnell. Now, they are to be interviewed on BBC Radio 4 for a special broadcast which will take place on The Queen’s birthday this Sunday.

Five of the maids are to be interviewed on a radio broadcast called “The Reunion: Coronation Maids” at 11:15AM on 21st April.

The maids of honour have reunited before, previously for the 40th anniversary of the Coronation.
