A relative of Queen Elizabeth II was sentenced to 10 months in prison on Tuesday for sexually assaulting a woman at her ancestral castle in Scotland.
Simon Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore, had admitted to assaulting the woman in a room at Glamis Castle in February 2020.
Bowes-Lyon, 34, who is a two-time estranged first cousin 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 house” .
“I didn’t think I was able to behave the way I did, but I had to face it and take responsibility,” he said.
He was sentenced on Tuesday at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Glamis Castle, near Dundee in central Scotland, is the childhood home of the Queen’s late mother, née Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.
