“The Duchess is up at Birkhall with the Prince at the moment and to say that she is devastated is an understatement. They are a very close family and even if they didn’t see each other every week – as was often the case with Mark – were in constant contact.”

What a terrible loss! Mark was a great guy who contributed so much to the world. Of course, my heart breaks for Camilla - wish I could help.


Yeah, it’s horrible. I’m still in lack of words somehow. Mark was a wonderful man and he had some great achievements. My thoughts and prayers are with Camilla, all their family and especially Mark’s daughter.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were saddened to learn this morning of the tragic death of Mark Shand. Their thoughts are with the Duchess of Cornwall and her family at this time.”

RIP Mark Shand


Mark and Camilla were extremely close. She watched over him, and he protected her. They were brother and sister, but it was an extremely close relationship. They were true friends, they would protect one another.

So, forget my first message…I´ve tears in my eyes now…Camilla, I´m so very, very sorry for you!!! This is horror! My prayers are for you and the whole family.

I loved Mark, he was so full of life and seemed always be in good spirit…And he had a good relationship with Charles…I´m sorry, I have no words…

CClover,

it’s so horrible indeed. I feel extremely sad right now too and yes, I had some tears in my eyes too. It’s been such a lovely, sunshiny day and now that… It’s just horrible.

Mark was for sure a lovely man and he will leave a huge void in  Milla’s life :( But I’m sure everyone will rally around Milla and Annabel.

Oh my God, poor Milla!! I wish there was something we could do for her - she must be devastated!!

I feel so sad right now. She surely is devastated. Mark and Camilla were extremely close. :(

But she has Annabel and the rest of her family and of course she has Charles and her friends. They will all care for her and for one another.

Oh my God, I´m so sorry for Camilla (and Mark´s family, of course). A head injury is horrible! I hope, everything will be fine with him! He is too young for this s..t! I remember the time when her father died, she was so very sad…And she has a close relationship with her siblings, I´ll pray, that Mark will recover well. Poor Camilla but, we can be sure, Charles is with her…

Hello CClover,

it was announced a few minutes ago that Mark died. It’s so horrible :(

Very sad to hear that her brother has died.

It’s so tragic :(

A statement from Clarence House about The Duchess of Cornwall’s brother Mark Shand

It is with deep sadness that we have to confirm that The Duchess of Cornwall’s brother, Mark Shand, has today passed away in New York.  

Mr Shand died in hospital as a result of a serious head injury which he sustained during a fall last night. 

The Duchess, The Prince of Wales and all her family members are utterly devastated by this sudden and tragic loss.  

Mark Shand was a man of extraordinary vitality, a tireless campaigner and conservationist whose incredible work through The Elephant Family and beyond remained his focus right up until his death.

A statement from Mark Shand’s friends at Elephant Family reads:

"Today we have lost the head of our family. Mark Shand was a true force for conservation. He was both a legend and inspiration and above all our great friend. We ask at this time that people’s thoughts are with his loved ones.  We will miss him always." 

RIP Mark Shand
