Michael Fergus Bowes-Lyon, 18th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne DL (born 7 June 1957), styled Lord Glamis between 1972 and 1987, is a British politician and soldier, and a first cousin, once removed, of Queen Elizabeth II.

Family and background[edit]

Lord Strathmore is the only son of Michael Bowes-Lyon, 17th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, and his wife Mary Pamela, née McCorquodale.[1] He is a great-nephew of the late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and a first cousin, once removed, of Queen Elizabeth II.

He was educated at Sunningdale School, Eton, the University of Aberdeen, and RMA Sandhurst. He rose to the rank of Captain in the British Army (serving with the Scots Guards). He succeeded his father as 18th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne in 1987.

Marriage and children[edit]

Lord Strathmore has been married three times.

In 1984 he married Isobel Charlotte Weatherall (b ca 1963), great-granddaughter of Henry Keswick and sister of businessman Percy Weatherall, Tai-Pans of Jardine Matheson. They were separated in 2003 and were finally divorced in 2005. They have the following children:

On 24 November 2005 at Glamis Castle he married Dr. Damaris E. Stuart-William, a clinical psychologist. They were separated in 2007 and were finally divorced in 2008. They have the following child:

  • The Hon. Toby Peter Fergus Bowes-Lyon (b. 2005) (born in March; legitimised upon the marriage of his parents)

On 4 August 2012 he married Karen Baxter.[2]

In the Press[edit]

The letter from James I to Lord Glamis, in which the former expresses "remarkable enthusiasm" for the Union of the Crowns of Scotland and England, was unearthed on April 19 2014 by Lord Strathmore, with whom it appears in the Daily Telegraph of that day. The monarch is known to be an advocate of a single parliament, and the fragile document makes clear his conviction that the two nations are “better together”, incidentally the name of the modern campaign against disunion.[3]
