Queen Elizabeth's Lady in Waiting Diana Farnham Dies at 90

One of Queen Elizabeth‘s ladies-in-waiting, Lady Diana Farnham, has reportedly died.

According to The Times, the Sovereign’s close confidant passed away just ahead of the new year on December 29.

Lady Farnham, who was 90, served as the Queen’s lady of the bedchamber since 1987.

She is actually the second lady-in-waiting to pass away recently. Ann Fortune FitzRoy, Duchess of Grafton, who had worked for the Queen since 1967, also died on December 3 at age 101.

Former press secretary to the Queen, Dickie Arbiter shared a statement on Lady Farnham’s passing: “She had a tremendous sense of humour. She was a very glamorous lady… always immaculately turned out. She chose them because she liked them.”

“They spoke the same language and had the same interests. They are usually friends or they’re friends of very close friends. Diana would have retired a few years ago.”

If you didn’t see, the Queen also bestowed an honor to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall recently.
