Lady Edwina Hogbottom is the hidden main antagonist of Annie: A Royal Adventure!. She is an evil, child-hating noblewoman who intends to seduce Mr. Warbucks. Mainly, her intention is to use a rocket to blow up Buckingham Palace while all heirs to the throne are present so she'll be queen. Her followers are her son Rupert and his partner Mean Murphy Knuckles. She is played by Joan Collins.
Near the end, when her plan is ruined, Lady Hogbottom is arrested along with her followers (including her maid Charity, who becomes Rupert's girlfriend), blaming Annie and her friends for spoiling her plan. Sadly, she waves good-bye to Mr. Warbucks.
