As wife of Scotland's premier peer, whom she married in i901, the Duchess of Hamilton, who has been chosen as one of Queen Mary's canopy bearers for the Coronation ceremony, is connected by marriage with many members of the 'peerage. Formerly she was Miss Nina Poore, daughter of a popular soldier, and her brother, Major Robert Poore, married the Duke of Hamilton's sister, Lady Flora. The Duchess, like the Duke, leads an unostentatious life, indulging chiefly in country pursuits and sport in Scotland, and takes a keen interest in the Scottish industries, which owe so much to the Duchess of Sutherland. The Duchess of Hamilton is also a great lover of animals, and her name will be found associated with many movements connected with their welfare.
