Katharine Fraser, Mistress of Saltoun, DL (born 11 October 1957) is the daughter of Captain Alexander Ramsay of Mar and Flora Fraser, 21st Lady Saltoun.



She was born Katharine Ingrid Mary Isabel Ramsay in Fraserburgh, Scotland. Her mother, Lady Saltoun, is the suo jure Lady Saltoun and the Chief of the name and arms of Fraser. Her father was great-grandson of Queen Victoria through his mother Princess Patricia of Connaught and a cousin of Queen Ingrid of Denmark and Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf, making Katherine a second cousin of Margrethe II of Denmark and Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.

As the eldest daughter without any brothers, Fraser is the heir presumptive to the Chiefship and the Lordship held by her mother. Since one cannot become the chief of a clan without taking the clan's surname, Lord Lyon King of Arms recognized her use of the surname Fraser in 1973.

On 20 April 2005, Fraser was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire.

Marriage and children

In February, 1980, the engagement between Fraser and Captain Mark Malise Nicolson (b. 29 September 1954) was announced. Fraser and Captain Nicolson married on 3 May 1980. They have three children:

  • Louise Alexandra Patricia Nicolson (born 2 September 1984)
  • Juliet Victoria Katharine Nicolson (born 3 March 1988)
  • Alexander William Malise Fraser (born 5 July 1990)
  • As Katharine's heir-apparent, Alexander bears the surname "Fraser" and not his father's surname.
