Queen's heartbreak as 'close friend' dies leaving Firm mourning 'adored' Lady Butter

Lady Butter, who was born in 1925, was widely considered very close to the Queen’s late husband, Prince Philip. Lady Butter was a descendent of Tsar Nicholas I of Russia and famed Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.

She died “peacefully” on Friday in London, the announcement of her death said.

Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty Magazine, wrote on Twitter: “Lady Butter was a daughter of Sir Harold and Lady Zia Wernher, and a granddaughter of Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia and Countess de Torby.

“Myra was a close friend of the Queen and Prince Philip since childhood and from time to time appeared in royal documentaries.”
