BREAKING NEWS: The Duke of Edinburgh's first cousin, Countess Mountbatten of Burma has died at the age of 93

Patricia Knatchbull was the 2nd Countess Mountbatten of Burma. She was the eldest child of Lord Mountbatten of Burma. Our Queen did not celebrate her accession as it was also the anniversary of her father’s passing, but there is little doubt that Patricia Knatchbull took over from her father in the most tragic of circumstances. Lord Mountbatten was murdered by the Provisional IRA in 1979 when his boat was blown up off the coast of Sligo. In that attack, she lost her father, mother-in-law, and her fourteen-year-old son Nicholas; she, her husband and another son, Timothy were seriously injured. Following her losses, she became the patron and later President of The Compassionate Friends, a self-help charity which provides help and support to bereaved parents across the United Kingdom.
