Queens cousin jailed for sex offences

A relative of the Queen has been jailed for 10 months for sexually assaulting a woman at his ancestral home.

Simon Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore, pleaded guilty to attacking a woman at Glamis Castle, Angus, in February last year.

The 34-year-old, who is the son of a cousin of the Queen, was sentenced at Dundee Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

The court previously heard that the assault happened in a bedroom at the castle.

The 19th and 6th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne was styled Lord Glamis until his father’s death in 2016 and among his famous friends are TV stars Hugo Taylor and Oliver Proudlock, Bryan Ferry’s son Otis and model and socialite Poppy Delevingne.

He is a first cousin twice removed of Queen Elizabeth II, and a great-great-nephew of the late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. His family owns Glamis Castle and inherited a share of his father’s £40million estate.

The current Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne found himself in the dock after he barged his way into the woman’s bedroom whilst she was sleeping.
