The Royal Family Is Mourning – Prayers Sent Their Way

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Captain Ian Farquhar, a beloved friend of the king. At 78 years old, his presence in the royal circle will be sorely missed.

Ian had the privilege of knowing the King and Queen Camilla for many years and even worked as a rider for the Queen Mother. With his exceptional horse riding and hunting skills, he also served in the Queen’s Own Hussars.

This is another devastating blow for the King, who is already battling cancer. Just last week, we mourned the loss of Lord Rothschild, who was 87 years old.

A Fond Memory with Prince William

Ian’s daughter, Rose Farquhar, shared a delightful memory from 2000 when she spent time with Prince William during his break from school. They enjoyed a picnic in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, creating cherished moments together.

For a long time, Ian had been renting a farmhouse at King’s Highgrove in Gloucestershire. Stephen Parker Bowles, who was once married to King Charles II’s first wife, revealed to the Daily Mail that Ian had been battling illness for some time.

Early Wednesday morning, Andy informed us of Ian’s passing at Highgrove. He fondly remembered Ian as someone who lived life to the fullest, declaring him to be “as wild as a hawk when he was young, but always a lot of fun.”

Remembering a Great Master of Hounds

Ian will be forever remembered as one of the great Master of Hounds. For an impressive 34 years, he held this esteemed position in the Beaufort Hunt.

In a heartfelt tribute on Instagram, the Beaufort Hunt expressed their deep sorrow at the loss of their esteemed leader. Captain Ian Farquhar was a pleasure to have as their pilot throughout those years. He passed away peacefully this week.

Many who were fortunate enough to join him on hunts held a great admiration for him, affectionately referring to him as “Captain.” He was not only kind and helpful but also brimming with innovative ideas.

“He had a wonderful sense of humor, and those lucky enough to spend time with him would always remember his exciting and unique life as a hunter and in the army.”

Captain Farquhar cherished his family, his dogs, and above all, his hounds. Upon his arrival in the great beyond, a whole pack of eager dogs surely awaits him, ready to greet their beloved captain once again.

“A true gentleman who loved his country.” Captain Ian Farquhar will be deeply missed.
