Lady Lucan leaves her fortune to Shelter

Lady Veronica Lucan, the wife of Lord Lucan who vanished more than 40 years ago, has left her fortune to homeless charity Shelter after reportedly cutting her children out of her will.

The Dowager Countess of Lucan took her own life in September after being misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. An inquest ruled last week that she killed herself with a cocktail of drink and drugs after wrongly self-diagnosing with Parkinson’s disease.

After the hearing, her daughter Camilla said: “Mummy left her estate to the homeless charity, Shelter.”

The amount of the inheritance is unknown.

A spokeswoman for the housing charity confirmed that the proceeds from Lucan’s estate had been donated to it.

She said: “At a time when over 300,000 people in Britain are without a home, we are incredibly grateful for the support we receive. The proceeds from Lady Lucan’s estate will help Shelter to continue fighting bad housing and homelessness.”
