Louisa Jane McDonnell, VA (née Grey; 15 February 1855, St. James's Palace – 2 April 1949), was the daughter of Hon. Charles Grey (a son of the 2nd Earl Grey and Private Secretary to Prince Albert) and his wife, Caroline Eliza née Farquhar. On 1 June 1875, Louisa married the 6th Earl of Antrim (thus becoming the Countess of Antrim) in the Chapel Royal at St. James's and they later had three children:

In 1890, the Countess became a Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Victoria until the latter's death in 1901. She was reappointed as such under Queen Alexandra in 1901[1] and until Edward VII's death in 1910. The Countess of Antrim died in 1949, aged 94.[citation needed]
