The frontrunner to become President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the European Union claims to be a laird – a claim quickly denied by Lord Lyon.
As I stated in an earlier post, Lord Lyon simply sells coats of arms – at a price designed to be unaffordable for “ordinary people”. He cannot create lairds – he does not sell land. It appears that Ted simply bought an overpriced coat of arms that he could have bought for less elsewhere.
Lairds are landowners and Ted would have been better advised to save the thousands of pounds he squandered on Lord Lyon and invested £30 with Highland Titles. A hard lesson to learn Mr Malloch.
