Relative of British queen jailed for sex assault at castle
LONDON (AP) - A relative of Queen Elizabeth II was sentenced to 10 months in prison Tuesday for sexually assaulting a woman in his ancestral castle in Scotland.
Simon Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore, admitted attacking the woman in a bedroom at Glamis Castle in February 2020.
Bowes-Lyon, 34, who was the Queen's first cousin twice removed, pleaded guilty last month and said he was very ashamed of my actions, which worried a guest at my house so much.
"I didn't think I would be able to act like this, but I had to face it and take responsibility," he said.
He was sentenced on Tuesday at the Dundee Sheriff Court.
Glamis Castle near Dundee in central Scotland is the childhood home of the late mother of the Queen, who was born Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.
