London, February 23
A relative of Queen Elizabeth II was sentenced on Tuesday to 10 months in prison for sexually assaulting a woman at his ancestral castle in Scotland.
Simon Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore, had admitted assaulting the woman in a bedroom at Glamis Castle in February 2020.
Bowes-Lyon, 34, who is a first cousin twice removed of the queen, pleaded guilty last 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 said.
He was sentenced on Tuesday at Dundee Sheriff Court.
