Australia’s etiquette queen, June Dally-Watkins, has died at the age of 92.
Her family has announced she died peacefully on Saturday night with her loved ones by her side.
In 1950, she established the June Dally-Watkins School, which eventually trained hundreds of Australian women in deportment and etiquette.
She later established Australia’s first modelling agency and business college.
