Queen’s relative jailed for 10 months for sex assault

A relative of the Queen has been jailed for 10 months for sexually assaulting a woman at his ancestral home. Simon Bowes-Lyon, 34, the Earl of Strathmore, pleaded guilty to attacking a woman at Glamis Castle, Angus, in February last year. The court heard the assault happened in a bedroom at the castle. The woman was attending a three-day public relations event at the castle and had gone to bed when a “drunk” Bowes-Lyon went to her room at around 1.20am, persuaded her to open the door and pushed his way in before pushing her on the bed and sexually assaulting her.
