Sir Kenneth Scott

We were saddened to hear of the death last month of Sir Kenneth Scott KCVO CMG, a Visiting Research Fellow in 1998. He was Deputy Private Secretary to the Queen between 1985 and 1996, having previously been UK Ambassador to Yugoslavia. While at IASH, Sir Kenneth worked on his book St James's Palace: A History, published in 2010 by Scala. In 2016, he also published a fascinating insight into the workings of the Royal Household in Vanity Fair.
