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.”
