Lord Milo Douglas who threw himself to his death from Reading Tower on the Hallfield Estate, Bayswater, on July 21. It is believed he fell from the eighth floor of the nine-storey block. He was the third son of the 12th Marquess of Queensberry. Milo was not due to inherit the title, that will go to his older brother Sholto, Viscount Drumlanrig

It was the saddest of endings to a life that had long been troubled by manic depression – and sadly only the latest incident in a trail of tragedy visited upon one of the oldest families in the land.

Milo was a teacher turned outreach worker for the charity Action Against Hunger UK.

But he is the latest victim of what might be termed the Queensberry Curse, an affliction that has seen several family members meet untimely ends. Few seem to have died peacefully in their beds.
