THE COMING CORONATION. RUMOUR Of flOUR DUCHESSLS. It is rumoured (Says Madame,) that at the Coronation Queen Alexandra will be attended by four duchesses who have been selected for their personal beauty. The ladies to be thus honoured are said to be the Duchesses of Montrose, of Sather- land, of Portland, and of Marlborough. They are to be dressed in cloth of gold and to wear their robes and coronets. It would be difficult to find four more regal-looking women than those named. The Duchess of Montrose is rather older than the other three, but as Miss Violet Graham of Netherby shj was one of the loveliest girls in London society and is still, although the mother of grown-up sons and daughters, a very beautiful woman. The Duchess of Sutherland is a very noticeable figure, with her tall, stately form, and crown of light brown hair, especially when she wears the splended diamond coronet which was made for Harriet Duchess of Sutherland to wear at Queen Victoria's Coronation. The Dutchess of Portland is immensely tall, and a State function, when she is beautifully dressed and blazing with jewels, is really a superb. looking woman. The Duchess of Marlborough, although not quite as tall as the other three, looks more than her height with her slight graceful figure and long slender throat. She is a very pretty woman, with a most attractive and intelli. gent face, and the historic pearls which once adorned the neck of an empress will look their best at the brave show on June 26 next.
