Queen Elizabeth’s Cousin, Simon Bowes-Lyon, Faces Jail After Sex Assault On Guest

Queen Elizabeth's cousin, Simon Bowes-Lyon, is facing jail for a violent sex attack after breaking into a woman’s room and groping her.


Bowes-Lyon, the current Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, barged his way into the woman’s bedroom while she was sleeping during an event he was hosting at Glamis Castle – the childhood home of the Queen Mother.

He repeatedly grabbed his victim and told her he wanted to have an affair with her during the drink-fuelled assault, which lasted more than 20 minutes. He is said to have tried to pull up her nightdress, and pushed her up against a wall and groped her.

When she rejected his advances, he is said to have called her a “rude, mean, bad and horrible person” and told her she could not tell him what to do in his own home.

The woman eventually managed to get him out of the room and sent messages asking other guests for help, only for him to return and try to get into the room again.

Bowes-Lyon, 34, who is the Queen’s cousin twice removed, admitted a charge of sexually assaulting the woman at Dundee Crown Court yesterday. He was granted bail yesterday and placed on the sex offenders register as his sentence was deferred for reports.
