Biography[edit]

Bowes-Lyon was born on 22 September 1884 at St Paul's Walden Bury, Hertfordshire to Claude Bowes-Lyon, 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and Cecilia Cavendish-Bentinck.[1] He was an older brother of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (later The Queen Mother), and therefore an uncle of Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret. At the outbreak of World War I, he went into service with the Black Watch.[citation needed]

As a maternal uncle of the bride, he was a leading guest at the 1947 wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.[2] He died on 25 May 1949 in Angus, Scotland, aged 64.
