LONDON () – Relative of Queen Elizabeth II. He was sentenced to 10 months in prison on Tuesday for sexually assaulting a woman at his hometown in Scotland.
Simon Bowes-Lyon, Earl of Strathmore, admitted to attacking a woman in a bedroom at Glamis Castle in February 2020.
Bowes-Lyon, 34, a cousin twice removed from the Queen, pleaded guilty last month, saying he was “very ashamed of my actions, which caused such anxiety to a guest in my house.”
“I didn’t think I was acting the way I did, but I had to face it and take responsibility,” he said.
He was convicted Tuesday at the Dundee Sheriff’s Court.
Glamis Castle near Dundee in central Scotland is home to the childhood of the Queen of the Deceased Mother, who was born Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.
