Suffolk has its first female Lord Lieutenant since the role was created during the reign of Henry VIII nearly 500 years ago.
The Queen has appointed Clare, Countess of Euston, to succeed Lord Tollemache following his retirement.
A previous High Sheriff of Suffolk, Lady Euston lives in the west of the county between Bury St Edmunds and Thetford at the family’s Euston Estate.
She has one son – the Duke of Grafton – four daughters and seven grandchildren and is well known as a champion of her adopted home county, as well as her dedication to the Suffolk Agricultural Association and her charity work.
With a long track record of service to some of the most vulnerable people in society, Lady Euston has headed up numerous charitable organisations over the years including chairing St Nicholas Hospice Care in Bury St Edmunds.
