Princess Alexandra

Princess Alexandra

HRH Princess Alexandra Helen Elizabeth Olga Christabel of Kent, the Hon Lady Ogilvy, KG, GCVO, is a first cousin of the Queen. She was born on Christmas Day, 1936, at 3 Belgrave Square, London, the second child and only daughter of Prince George of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.

A working member of the Royal Family, Princess Alexandra is patron or president of over 100 organisations, including as joint president with the Duke of Gloucester of Cancer Research UK. She also supported Queen Elizabeth II in her duties, attending ceremonial occasions alongside other members of the Royal Family.

In April 1963, Princess Alexandra married Rt Hon Sir Angus James Bruce Ogilvy, a businessman and the second son of the 12th Earl of Airlie. Their wedding was broadcast on television and watched by an estimated audience of 200 million. Sir Angus declined the Queen’s offer to be made an earl upon marriage, so their two children, James and Marina, bear no titles.

Sir Angus died in 2004, and Princess Alexandra resides at Thatched House Lodge, Richmond, Surrey. Her office is at Buckingham Palace.
