Anne Mary Sibylla Liddell-Grainger, nee Lady Anne Abel Smith, ist die Mutter des britischen Politikers Ian Liddell-Grainger.
Ihre Großeltern mütterlicherseits waren Alexander Cambridge, 1. Earl of Athlone und Prinzessin Alice, Gräfin von Athlone.
Anna Abel Smith married Liddell Grainger in December 1957 at St. George's Chapel, Windsor. One of her bridesmaids was the future Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.
As her bridal wedding jewel she wore the Teck Cambridge Diamond Ears of Wheat Tiara. The grandmother of the bride was Princess Alice Countess of Athlone.
She is in the line of succession to the British Throne as a great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.
She was not very often pictured in public, living a very private life, but above, she wore part of her mother’s diamond link sautoir - in shorter form as choker.
In 1963 Mrs David Liddell-Grainger, Lady Anne wore an important ruby demi parure with diamonds.
This very pretty Victorian necklace is composed of a series of five graduated cushion-shaped ruby and diamond clusters, with ruby and diamond collet foliate and scroll surmounts, which are interspersed with graduated diamond collets suspended from a line of ruby and diamond clusters.
The back chain consists of graduated diamond collets and has a ruby and diamond cluster clasp. The most expensive collar was valued at GBP 40,000-60,000. It was offered in 1992 at auction by Christies.
