This is a thread where we can all update one another with the latest deaths amongst the royalty and nobility of the world. So we don't get cluttered up, I will set the threads start date at 9/1/2007. You may look on Wikipedia for other death dates of royalty and nobility.

His Grace Walter Francis John Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 9th Duke of Buccleuch and 11th Duke of Queensbury died today (September 4th).

His titles now pass to the former Earl of Dalkeith, who now becomes Richard Walter John Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 10th Duke of Buccleuch and 12th Duke of Queensbury. The late Duke's wife now becomes Her Grace Jane Montagu-Douglas-Scott, Dowager Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensbury, if she is still alive. The new Duke's wife now becomes Her Grace Elizabeth Marian Frances Montagu-Douglas-Scott, Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensbury. The eldest son of the new Duke becomes Walter John Francis Scott, Earl of Dalkeith and, technically, Marquess of Dumfriesshire, since he is heir to the Dukedom of Queensbury as well as the Dukedom of Buccleuch.

Let's keep this thread focused on information about royal and noble deaths (though subsequent such deaths may very well get their own threads), as intended by its creator KYMonarchist.   Here is an obituary of the Duke of Buccleuch:

His Grace was not 'just' a nobleman, he was also a Noble Man.

Anybody have info on the Barons Bethell? I can't find them on Wikipedia.

Ian Hedworth John Little Gilmour, Baron Gilmour of Craigmillar, 3rd Gilmour Baronet (of Liberton), died on September 21st, 2007, at the age of 81. He was born on July 8, 1926. In 1977, he succeeded to the Gilmour Baronetcy (of Liberton), upon the death of his father, John Little Gilmour, 2nd Gilmour Baronet (of Liberton). He was made a life peer in 1992, as Baron Gilmour of Craigmillar, of Craigmillar in the District of the City of Edinburgh. (According to his Wikipedia article, his family were the feudal surperiors of this area for several hundred years.) On July 10, 1951, he married Lady Caroline Margaret Montagu-Douglas-Scott (still living), youngest daughter of His Grace Walter Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 8th Duke of Buccleuch. She bore him four sons and a daughter. The eldest of his sons has succeeded him as Baronet (of Liberton), thus becoming David Robert Gilmour, 4th Gilmour Baronet (of Liberton).

UPDATE: It turns out the late 4th Baron Bethell was twice married. He married his first wife, Cecilia Mary Honeyman, Baroness Bethell, in 1964, and had two sons by her. The eldest of these, James Bethell, has now become the 5th Baron Bethell. He [the 4th Baron Bethell] and Ms. Honeyman divorced in 1971, and the former Baroness Bethell died six years later. The 4th Baron Bethell remarried in 1992 to Bryony Lea Morgan Griffiths, who became Baroness Bethell. They had one son. All three of Nicholas Bethell's sons are alive, as is his second wife, now the Dowager Baroness Bethell.
