A Lady in Waiting with Anne Glenconner

A Lady in Waiting with Anne Glenconner

A Lady in Waiting with Anne Glenconner has been cancelled to meet the Federal Government’s directive on limiting non-essential mass gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Lady Glenconner's life story is a combination of royal magic, personal tragedy and resilient survival. With humour, courage and preternatural poise, she at last tells the story of her uniquely fascinating life live on stage across Australia & New Zealand in celebration of the best-selling publication of Lady in Waiting.


Lady Glenconner’s entire life is intertwined with the Royal Family’s. Maid of Honour at the Queen’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 The Crown as well as the drama, heart-breaking tragedy and courage of her own life.

From brothels and barons, 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!), her 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.
