Lady Glenconner was born Lady Anne Coke in 1932, the eldest daughter of the 5th Earl of Leicester, and growing up in their ancestral estate at Holkham Hall in Norfolk.
A Maid of Honour at the Queen’s Coronation, she married Lord Glenconner in 1956.

Lord Glenconner died in 2010, leaving everything in his will to his former employee.
She now lives in Norfolk, England.
The thrilling new mystery from the bestselling author of Lady in Waiting and Murder on Mustique.
It’s Christmas 1943 and Lady Anne Coke has returned to Holkham Hall from Scotland.
But her home is now an army base, with large sections out of bounds.
And 11-year-old Anne is in the care of a new governess, whom she hates and believes to be hiding something.
At least her beloved grandfather is there with her, to share stories and keep her entertained.
But even though she’s been told to stay away from certain parts of the house, Anne knows secrets about the hall that others do not – the passageways and the cellars that allow her to move around unnoticed, watching.
And when mysterious events lead to a murder and disappearance, Anne is determined to uncover the truth.
