Royals attempt to stop accountant in his tracks

Lawyers acting for the estates of
and the
Queen Mother have put
in a bid to stop
Jersey accountant
Robert Brown
, 52 from being able to see the princess’s will, which has never
been published.

The royal legal team has asked the President of the Family Division, Sir Mark
Potter, to strike out the application before it proceeds to a full hearing.

Brown believes having access to the will may establish whether he is the
illegitimate son of the late Princess Margaret.

Frank Hinks, QC, for the executors, told Sir Mark that Brown’s claim was
‘frivolous, vexatious and an abuse of the court process’.

His lawyer, Geoffrey Robertson, QC, said Brown was ‘a perfectly rational man
who seeks peace of mind’.
