Kay, Duchess of Hamilton becomes a new AIA Patron

Kay Duchess of Hamilton

AIA is delighted to welcome Kay, Duchess of Hamilton, as a new patron.

Kay, Duchess of Hamilton, is also patron of Scotland for Animals and has a long record of campaigning for animal welfare with her late husband Angus, 15th Duke of Hamilton, the premier peer of Scotland.  In particular, they campaigned against pate de fois gras, snaring, cruel abattoirs and bloodsports.  Once, when asked why he had banned pheasant shooting on his estates, the Duke (an ex RAF pilot) replied, “Have you ever been shot at while flying? Well, I have, and I can tell you it’s not much damned fun!”
