Countess of Southesk Princess Maud


British royal, a granddaughter of King Edward VII.

Maud and her elder sister, Alexandra, had the distinction of being the only female-line descendants of a British sovereign granted the title of Princess of Great Britain and Ireland.

On 13 November 1923, Maud married Lord Carnegie (23 September 1893 – 16 February 1992) at the Royal Military Chapel, Wellington Barracks, London. Maud and her husband operated a model farm at Elsick, in Kincardineshire, Scotland. They had one child: James George Alexander Bannerman Carnegie, 3rd Duke of Fife, 12th Earl of Southesk (b. 23 September 1929).

Although Princess Maud did not normally carry out royal engagements, she served as a Counsellor of State between 1942 and 1945.

Maud died in a London nursing home on 14 December 1945 after a bout of acute bronchitis.

Sy Scholfield quotes official bulletin issued by Dr. John Williams, who was in attendance, in "News in Brief," The Times, 4 April 1893, p. 7: "Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Fife, gave birth to a daughter at 1 o'clock [in the afternoon] to-day. . . East Sheen Lodge [Richmond, London], April 3."

On 3 October 2014, Scholfield adjusted the time to 1:05pm, quoting The London Gazette, 4 April 1893, p. 2117: "Monday afternoon, the 3rd instant, shortly after one o'clock."
