An end to one dramatic story, one that could make the plot of a good movie.

Lady Lucan's husband disappeared over 40 years ago, after being accused of murdering the nanny of their children. He was declared dead by his son under 'the presumption of death' act only a few years ago. It is said it was his wife he was thought to intend to kill, and killed the nanny instead. Lady Lucan believed her husband committed suicide. She herself, suffering from Parkinsons, took her own life.

The kids were raised by their Aunt Christina Shand-Kydd after their mother was found to suffer from mental illness. Christina's husband William was half-brothers to Princess Diana's stepfather Peter.

Great Wedding at Blenheim Castle I visited.
Actually more people guests than the British Nobility , times are changing.
The British aristocracy have to accept that the Princes(sses) and Heirs(esses) , Nobles prefer communors than their Son or Daughter. I remember the 2 Percy Weddings and their divorce a few years later!

Regardless of the ruling that’s not going to anywhere in Britain. The government has bigger fish to fry than this.

To make changes to peerages requires acts of Parliament. There not just titles. Peers have legal protection under the law.

The ECHR isn’t exactly the most popular European institution in Britain atm. MPs and peers will tell them to get stuffed.

As peers are beng phased out of the legislative process anyway, it seems pointless.

Are there any other countries that effectively ban some seats in parliament from being held by women?

More on the case:
The Case - Daughters' Rights
We believe that the Government is in breach of Article 3 of the First Protocol, read with Article 14. […] In 2008, two men in Bosnia-Herzegovina wanted to stand for election to their Upper House and were denied based on their race. They took their case to the European Court of Human Rights and won. Swap race for gender and the cases are identical.
Article 14 of the Convention
The enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this Convention shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status.
Article 3 of the First Protocol
The High Contracting Parties undertake to hold free elections at reasonable intervals by secret ballot, under conditions which will ensure the free expression of the opinion of the people in the choice of the legislature.
Legal case to overturn ban on women inheriting peerages | Daily Mail Online
Lawyer Paul Hardy, said: […] 'This cannot be heard in a UK court because national courts are prohibited from adjudicating on the legality of parliamentary procedure.'

As far as I can tell, proposals to phase out the hereditary peers from the House of Lords are going nowhere.

Women were excluded from the House of Lords until the Life Peerages Act 1958, passed to address the declining number of active members, made possible the creation of peerages for life. Women were immediately eligible and four were among the first life peers appointed. However, hereditary peeresses continued to be excluded until the passage of the Peerage Act 1963. Since the passage of the House of Lords Act 1999,hereditary peeresses remain eligible for election to the Upper House; there is one (Margaret of Mar, 31st Countess of Mar) among the 90 hereditary peers who continue to sit.

There are 209 female peers out of 798 in the House of Lords today

The most important reason why only one of the 92 (not 90) hereditary peers sitting in the House of Lords is a woman, even though hereditary peeresses are in theory eligible for election, is that the rules of the vast majority of hereditary peerages ban female descendants from being hereditary peeresses.

According to Debrett’s Peerage and Baronetage 2011, there were 790 male hereditary peers and only 13 hereditary peeresses in their own right in 2011.

They don't ban. All titles have their reminders, usually for male heirs. It's part of history.
Unlike Spaniards Britons don't plan to cash on peerage titles. Thus they aren't interested in adding more heirs to titles.

I am not sure what you mean by "cash on peerage titles", but the usual remainder "heirs male of the body, lawfully begotten" does ban women from inheriting the peerage.

Why is that? As far as I'm aware, Brexit will have no effect on Britain's membership of the ECHR.
