Happy Birthday to Lady Susan Hussey, Baroness Hussey of North Bradley, who turns 80 today! The fifth and youngest daughter of the 12th Earl and Countess Waldegrave, she is the sister of the 13th Earl Waldegrave and Lord Waldegrave of North Hill. In 1959, Lady Susan married Marmaduke Hussey, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the BBC who became Baron Hussey of North Bradley in 1996, and had two children. In 1960, she became the Queen’s Woman of the Bedchamber, initially employed to respond to letters after the birth of the Duke of York, and has become one of the Queen’s most trusted Ladies-in-waiting in almost six decades of service. Lady Susan is also one of the godmothers of the Duke of Cambridge and was made a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order (GCVO) in the 2013 Birthday Honours. I wish Her Ladyship a very Happy Birthday, and Many Happy Returns!
