American-born British Duchess, as the wife of His Grace The 5th Duke of Abercorn, she was in the line of succession to the British throne as a descendant of Sophia, Electress of Hanover. She was also a descendant of the Russian poet, Alexander Pushkin, as well as his African great-grandfather, Abram Petrovich Gannibal, who was both a tribal prince and a protégé of Peter the Great. It is through their Russian grand ducal father that Alexandra and her sister Natalia are descended from Sophia, Electress of Hanover.

The Duchess of Abercorn was a close friend of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and her sister Natalia, the Duchess of Westminster, is a godmother of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

On 20 October 1966, Alexandra Anastasia Phillips married James Hamilton, Marquess of Hamilton (who, in 1979, succeeded as The 5th Duke of Abercorn) in Westminster Abbey. The Duke and Duchess of Abercorn have three children.

The Duchess died on 9 December 2018 at the age of 72.
