The Dowager Countess of Harewood (1926 - 2018)

8th May 2018 in News

We are very sorry to hear that Dowager Countess of Harewood, Patricia Lascelles, has passed away aged 91. The Countess married the 7th Earl of Harewood, George Lascelles, in 1967 who served as chairman of the board of ENO from 1986 to 1995 and was Managing Director of ENO from 1972 to 1985. A violinist from Australia, music was always important to the Dowager Countess of Harewood, born Patricia Elizabeth Tuckwell, and she continued to support opera throughout her life both at ENO and Opera North.

Our thoughts are with Dowager Countess Harewood’s family and friends at this sad time.
