The Royal Scottish Club in Edinburgh is preparing to host Lady Glenconner for its next literary dinner.

Lady Glenconner, 90, was maid of honor at the Queen’s coronation and was appointed maid of honor to Princess Margaret in 1971.

Her memoir, A lady in waitingwas published in 2019 and became a bestseller, and Lady Glenconner appeared on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show to talk about the book – and to share spicy stories from their honeymoon.

At the dinner, which will take place on September 26, she will also talk about her novels: Murder in Mustique, set on an island in the Caribbean once owned by her husband; and The Ghosts of Holkhamwhich is set during World War II in her childhood home of Holkham Hall in Norfolk.

Lady Glenconner will be interviewed by Jackie McGlone.

Two-course lunch guests will also receive a glass of prosecco on arrival and wine to accompany the meal.

Tickets for the lunch, priced at £45 for Royal Scots Club members and £50 for non-members, are on sale via Eventbrite website.
