The Queen is to appoint aristocrat who converted to Islam as her High Sheriff

November 17, 2013


An aristocrat who converted to Islam has been nominated to be the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, the monarch’s representative in the county. The Earl of Yarborough, who uses the name Abdul Mateen, will take the unpaid role next year. He inherited the bulk of a £68 million estate, which includes Brocklesby Park in Lincolnshire, 27,500 acres of farmland, and one of Britain’s finest private art collections when his father died in 1991.
