Did you know: Earl Grey tea is named after Charles Grey, the 2nd Earl Grey who served as Prime Minister from 1830 – 1834. His son, Charles, served as private secretary to Prince Albert and his granddaughter, Louisa, served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria as well as lady-in-waiting to Queen Alexandra, wife of Edward VII. Louisa married the 11th Earl of Antrim, William, in 1875 and they resided at Glenarm Castle for many years.
