A son for Lord and Lady Ramsay

Lady Ramsay has given birth a son,  William Fox.  This is the first child for Lord and Lady Ramsay.

Simon David Ramsay is the third child and only son of James Hubert Ramsay, 17th Earl of Dalhousie, and Marilyn Davina Butter.   He has two older sisters, Lady Lorna and Lady Alice, both of whom married.

Lord Ramsay married American-born Kaitlin Kubinsky at  All Souls Cathedral in Asheville, North Carolina  on September 24, 2016.

Lady Dalhousie brings a Romanov lineage to the Ramsay family.   She is the second of five children of the late Major Sir David Henry Butter and Myra Alice Wernher, who was the youngest of three children of Sir Harold Wernher, BT and Countess Anastasia Torby (styled as Lady Zia Wernher after her marriage).

Lady Zia's younger sister, Countess Nada, was married to Prince George of Battenberg (2nd Marquess of Milford Haven).  The late Dowager Marchioness of Milford Haven was one of Marilyn's godmothers.

Myra Wernher and her older siblings, Alex and Georgina, were, along with their first cousins, Lady Tatiana and David, 3rd Marquess of Milford Haven, and their first cousins,  Patricia and Pamela Mountbatten, and Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark,  were childhood playmates and life long friends of Queen Elizabeth II and the Princess Margaret.

Lord and Lady Ramsay's son is a great-great-great-grandson of Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovitch of Russia and his morganatic wife, Countess Sophie von Merenberg.

Lady Dalhousie is a first cousin of the Duchesses of Abercorn and Westminster.   Lord Dalhousie is a the nephew of the late Sir David Stirling, founder of the SAS, and a first cousin of Archie Stirling (son of William Stirling of Keir, David's older brother),  which means Lord Ramsay and Archie's only daughter, actress Rachael Stirling, are second cousins.
