A relative of Queen Elizabeth II was sentenced Tuesday to 10 months in jail for sexually assaulting a lady at his ancestral citadel in Scotland. Simon Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore, had admitted assaulting the lady in a bed room at Glamis Castle in February 2020.
Bowes-Lyon, 34, who’s a primary cousin twice eliminated of the queen, pleaded responsible final month, saying he was “greatly ashamed of my actions which have caused such distress to a guest in my home.”
“I did not think I was capable of behaving the way I did but have had to face up to it and take responsibility,” he stated.
He was sentenced Tuesday at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Glamis Castle, close to Dundee in central Scotland, is the childhood dwelling of the queen’s late mom, who was born Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.
