Queen Elizabeth has been rocked by another tragedy after one of her closest friends and most trusted confidants passed away.
Lady Diana Farnham, who had supported Her Majesty for decades in her role as Lady of the Bedchamber, died on December 29 aged 90
It’s the third loss for Her Majesty in one year after another trusted pal, the Duchess of Grafton, died last month and her husband Prince Philip passed away in April last year.
Lady Farnham first started working with the monarch in 1987 and has been by her side ever since.
She also joined the Queen on royal tours during her 44 years of service, including the highly successful tour of the Republic of Ireland in 2011 due to her Irish connections.
Lady Farnham was married to Barry Maxwell, the 12th Baron Farnham – a top City banker and Irish peer who died in 2001.
