Lady Alexandra Clare Etherington (née Carnegie; born 20 June 1959) is the only daughter of James Carnegie, 3rd Duke of Fife, and a great-great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria, as such she is in the line of succession to the British throne.

She married Mark Fleming Etherington (born 10 December 1962 in Newmarket) on 11 May 2001. They have one daughter, Amelia Mary Carnegie Etherington (born 24 December 2001).

Occasionally, Lady Alexandra has been confused with a member of Britain's royal family, Princess Alexandra, The Honourable Lady Ogilvy, when the daily court circular is read. However, Lady Alexandra makes no appearances on behalf of her second cousin once removed, Queen Elizabeth II,[1] though she has represented other members of the royal family on occasion.[2]

Lady Alexandra is one of the godmothers of Lady Louise Windsor.[3]
