Queen's cousin Margaret Rhodes dies


The Queen's first cousin and one of her most trusted confidantes, Margaret Rhodes, has died aged 91.
Rhodes, whose aunt was the Queen Mother, died on Friday after a short illness, according to reports.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said it was not issuing a statement as it was a "private matter" for the Queen.

Rhodes, who was less than a year older than the Queen, spent her summer holidays at Balmoral with the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.

The Queen Mother affectionately called her her "third daughter".
