The Baronetcy Boreel of Amsterdam.

On the website of the Dutch Hoge Raad van Adel (High Council of Nobility) there is an item about the Baronetcy Boreel of Amsterdam, created by King Charles I in 1645 for Willem Boreel (1591-1668), special Envoy of the Lords Estates-General.

The family Boreel belongs to the Dutch Nobility, with the predicate Jonkheer or Jonkvrouw. The baronetcy is held by the most senior male descendant.

Since 2001 - the death of Jonkheer Sir Francis David Boreel, 13th Baronet Boreel of Amsterdam, the title was dormant. His eldest daughter Jonkvrouw Reiniera Adriana Boreel has signed a so-called Statutory Declaration at the Hoge Raad van Adel. In this the eldest daughter of the last Baronet declares that her relative Jonkheer Stephan Gerard Boreel, from another branch of the family, is successor to the Baronetcy.

The Statutory Declaration was sent to the College of Arms in London. With this declaration the College can register the new holder on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. Since then Jonkheer Sir Stephan Gerard Boreel is the 14th Baronet Boreel of Amsterdam.

The Statutory Declaration was signed by Lady Boreel at the Hoge Raad van Adel. This because the Council has been helpful in the complex procedure.

Charlotte Carew Pole is the chairperson of Daughters' Rights and is not a party in the case. All five of the plaintiffs are eldest children of peers.

Whatever the case I doubt that neither the Government nor the Parliament will be happy to implement the decision of a foreign court on a question regarding the governance of the country itself.
The judgment of the Court is legally binding when the government is a party in the case (Article 46), even if governments do not always implement its judgments in practice. http://www.echr.coe.int/Documents/Convention_ENG.pdf

According to a research report concerning the UK and the ECHR,
The UK accepted the right of individuals to take a case to Strasbourg and the jurisdiction of the ECtHR in 1966. In 1998, the right of individual petition and the jurisdiction of the Court were made compulsory for all states which are members of the ECHR.

[…]

The UK has a very low ‘rate of defeat’ at Strasbourg. Of the nearly 12,000 applications brought against the UK between 1999 and 2010, the vast majority fell at the first hurdle. Only three per cent (390 applications) were declared admissible. An even smaller proportion of applications 1.8 per cent (215) eventually resulted in a judgment finding a violation. In other words, the UK ‘lost’ only one in fifty cases brought against it in Strasbourg. If adjustment is made for repetitive cases (i.e. cases where the violation has the same root cause and therefore multiple judgments are counted as a single judgment), the rate of defeat falls to 1.4 per cent (161). The latest figures for 2011 show a rate of defeat of just 0.5 per cent, or one in 200.

The UK has a generally exemplary record in implementing judgments of the ECtHR. Strasbourg judgments concerning the UK usually lead to swift changes to the law or the way that the law is applied. This view of the UK’s positive record is shared within the Council of Europe. The one notable recent exception concerns the issue of prisoner voting rights, which has remained unresolved since 2005.

Lady Sarah McCorquodale was also there as joint master of the Hunt

Quote:
Socialite Lady Violet Manners claimed a group of 'violent' hunt saboteurs terrorised her group during a meet near her family's Leicestershire estate.

Writing on Instagram, the 25-year-old described how the campaigners 'blew horns' to confuse the hounds and tore across the fields dressed in black balaclavas.

'Then followed the screaming and shouting at the hounds, with even attempts to kick them [the hounds],' her impassioned post continued. 'It was utterly despicable

Alice Lindsay, only daughter of late Major Hugh Lindsay, has got engaged:

Peerage News: Poyner/Lindsay engagement

Do you think that Charles will lead her down the aisle?
Her father is dead, and Charles is her godfather.

Please, stop calling her "Lady". She is Miss Sabrina Percy. She doesn't have any title.

I had to look her up and you're right. If I have the correct Sabrina Percy, she's the great-great-granddaughter of the 7th Duke of Northumberland. So no "Lady" for her, she's only a Miss or Ms.

Oh, these titles.. In some articles and captions the "lady" is added, in some it's not..Very confusing, I'll try to make a mental note of it
