Robin Grinnell-Milne de la Lanne-Mirrlees died this year.

He was born in 1925; he had a romance with Duchess Margarete-Louise of Wurtemberg (b.25 November 1928) [second of five children and first daughter of Duke Albrecht Eugen of Wurtemberg (1895-1954) & his wife, Princess Nadejda of Bulgaria (1899-1958)] and became a father of her only child, a son named Patrick Francis (b.1962). I don't know anything about his later life.
Margarete-Louise married in 1970 Viscount Francois Luce-Bailly de Chevigny (b.15 June 1928) but she didn't have more children.

Patrick Francis Grinnell-Milne de la Lanne-Mirrlees married Irene Auer (b.1962) in 1988; they have three children: Marie Charlotte (b.1989), Berenice (b.1990) and Cyran (b.1997).

Here is an obituary from the Telegraph about him:
Count Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees - Telegraph

The obituary mentions that in 1975 he was recognised by the Lord Lyon King of Arms as feudal Baron of Inchdrewer (which I think is his only official and undisputed title).

Michael Abney-Hastings, 14th Earl of Loudoun, passed away on 30 June 2012 at Jerilderie, New South Wales, Australia. He was 69 year old.

He was born on 22 July 1942, the son of Captain Walter Strickland Lord and his wife Barbara Abney-Hastings, the 13th Countess of Loudoun.
He was married since 1969 to Noeline Margaret McCormick, by whom he had two sons and two daughters.
In 2002, at the death of his mother, he succeeded her as 14th Earl of Loudoun.
In 2004 Channel 4 documentary "Britain’s Real Monarch" arose the claim that King Edward IV of England was conceived illegitimately and therefore he and his descendants weren't the rightful English sovereigns; instead, the Earl of Lousoun - as the direct descendant of George Plantagenet, 1st Duke of Clarence - should be the rightful King. This claim, however, is disputed among historians, and neither the 14th Earl of Loudoun took it seriously.


He is survived by his wife and their children; his eldest son, Simon Michael Abney-Hastings (Lord Mauchline), succeeds him as 15th Earl of Loudoun.
