H.M. Edward VII and The Countess Dowager of Seafield

A photograph of the King Edward VII meeting the Countess Dowager of Seafield.

Caroline Stuart, Countess of Seafield, was born on 30 June 1830. She was the youngest of eleven children born to Robert Walter, 11th Lord Blantyre, and Fanny Mary, granddaughter of the celebrated admiral, Lord Rodney. Through her father's line, she belonged to the Stuarts of Minto, who were descended from the Stuarts of Garlies, Earls of Galloway.

On 12 August 1850, she married John Charles, the future Earl of Seafield and the head of the Grants. Their only child, Ian Charles, eighth Earl Seafield, was born on 7 October 1851.

Lady Seafield died on 6 October 1911. She had survived her husband, who had passed away 30 years earlier. Tragically, her son, Ian Charles, also predeceased her, in 1888. Her grandson succeeded to the estate.
