Alice Stanley (15 August 1862, Westminster – 23 July 1957, Coworth Park) was born as Lady Alice Maud Olivia Montagu, the daughter of the 7th Duke of Manchester and his wife, Countess Louise von Alten.

On 5 January 1889, at the Guards Chapel, Wellington Barracks, London, she married Lord Stanley of Bickerstaffe. Lord Stanley succeeded to his father's title of Earl of Derby in 1908, whereupon she became Countess of Derby.

From 1900 to 1910, Alice was a Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Alexandra.

In August 1901, Lady Stanley named the battleship HMS Exmouth, built by Cammell Laird at Birkenhead. In April 1913 the Countess also had the honor of christening the newest and largest Cunard Company steamship, The RMS Aquitania, at Clydebank, Scotland.
