Earl of the Hour:
Walter John Francis Montagu Douglas Scott, Earl of Dalkeith

Born in 1984 (2 August), this 26-year-old Scottish nobleman (2nd from the left in photo below) is the heir apparent to the double-dukedoms of Buccleuch and Queensberry, 10 other titles, a reknowned art collection, and holdings of 280,000 acres, including Drumlanrig Castle.  His father, the 10th Duke of Buccleuch and 12th Duke of Queensberry (far left), is also the Chief of Clan Scott.  Few publications reference The Lord Dalkeith or provide details about his private life, but, due to his youth, he is presumed to be unmarried and childless.  As such, the presumptive succession would be his younger brother, The Lord Charles David Peter Montagu Douglas Scott, 23 (born 20 April, 1987; far right), who is also single.
