Remembering HRH Queen Elizabeth II Posted: 11th September 2022

Here at Nicol Estate Agents we were all deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in Balmoral last week.

HRH Queen Elizabeth was tied to Scotland through ancestry, affection and a sense of duty unrivalled by any other public servant in history. Descended from the Royal House of Stewart on both sides of her family, her ties with Scotland and the people here run deep. These ties deepened during her many visits to Scotland, especially her annual visits to Queen Victoria’s favourite location in Balmoral.

Her parents shared a common ancestor in Robert II, King of Scots. Her father was directly descended from James VI of Scotland and her mother was descended from the Bowes-Lyons, Earls of Strathmore. The Queen and now King Charles III can trace her ancestry by generations of Scottish nobility to Sir John Lyon, Thane of Glamis, who married Robert II’s daughter in the fourteenth century.

Queen Elizabeth reigned for 70 years, a period of rule that is unlikely to be surpassed. During this time Britain changed beyond recognition and the Monarchy strengthened under her watch. Her mother’s saying ‘never explain, never complain’ is something she lived by during her rule. The outpouring of grief is testament to the affection that the people of the UK held for her and she will be greatly missed.
