WHAT MAIDS OF HONOR DO. a]
About the Daily Duties of the Queen's ai
.Most Constant Companions. til
Pearson's Weekly. at
- The most coveted position -among
the gentlewormen in the kingdom is
that of -naid of honor to Queen Alex
andra. At the moment, four ladies
hold this honorable position. Wher- d(
ever the Queen goes-to state fune
tion, ball, theater, party, at home or
abro'ad-at least one .maid will be in e
constant attendance upon her. Yet, q
though so much sought after, the post T
is no sinecure. It requires a parti- .
cularly talented lady to fulfull all
the Queen's requirements.
That they must be daughters of
Ur1bwUL Uk , L. . course, essential
usually they are daughters of grand
daughters of peers-but, failing their
right to a title, or precedence by
birth, they are allowed the prefix of
honorable immediately upon appoint
ment to office.
A maid of honor's day commences
immediately after the Queen has
breakfasted. Though her majesty's d(
private secretary will see to the bulk
of the correspondence the morning's
post has letters of a more or less con- ti
fidential and private nature, which S,
the Queen will answer personally, ill
through one of her ladies-in-waiting. st
That, alone, requires a maid of honor te
to be an accomplished linguist, for C1
almost daily Quecil Alexandra receive
communications from her numerous D
relatives in different parts of Europe. S1
Immediately this is over, and if the pi
weather be fine, the Queen, who I
spends. a good deal of her time in the P
open air, especially when staying at (11
Sadringham and Windsor, will order F
her carriage, for a lengthy drive. A
maid of honor always accompanies C
her majesty; while on these rare oc- sq
casions when the Queen goes out on li4
horseback one of her ladies. similarly Ii
mounted, rides with her,
To the management of horses will re
be added the care of the sick and the of
poor. For it is on such occasions that
the Queen pulls up before some of the s
cottages of her villagers and sends t
her maid of honor to inquire as to the ot
health and prosperity of the inmates.
Back tc luncheon, there is usually at
some function at which the Queen, e
and, of course, one or more of her T
maids of honor, must attend. If a eC
king or queen or any one of princely
rank, is visiting King Edward the at
maids of honor must be present with CI
the Queen, sto greet them on arrival. II
During the season when drawing dt
rooms are held the maids take part in
the royal procession to the throne, at
and are in attendance upon her ma- F:
jesty throughiout' the ceremony. At
state concerts they sit immediately at
behind the Queen and her daughters. in
At state balls they are always close en
at hand to adjust the Queen's cloak or c
wrap, or to. take her fan or flowers le
from her. ni
