Our Patron, Alexandra “Sacha” Hamilton, The Duchess Of Abercorn, died peacefully on 10th December 2018, in London. She is survived by her husband James Hamilton 5th Duke of Abercorn, and her three children James “Jamie” Hamilton Marquess of Hamilton, Lady Sophia “Sophie” Hamilton and Lord Nicholas Hamilton. The funeral will be private and a memorial service will be held in Spring 2019.
Those of us who knew Sacha well, or ever had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with her will remember an elegant, friendly down to earth lady who was passionate about all the creative arts, education, health, literature and her tireless work with the Pushkin Trust. It was wonderful that she was able to join us last year to celebrate the Society’s ‘Diamond’ 60th Annual Exhibition. Sacha The Duchess will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace.
