How Lord Bath died?
Lord Bath, 87, died in hospital after contracting a coronavirus.
He was admitted on March 28 when he was confirmed to have the virus.
The statement from Lord Bath’s safari reads: “It is with the utmost sadness that we must announce that Lord bath died at the age of 87.
“Alexander Thynn, 7th Marquis of Bath, died on Saturday April 4.
“He was admitted to the Royal United Hospital in Bath on March 28 where it was confirmed that he had the coronavirus.
“The family would like to express their gratitude for the dedicated team of nurses, doctors and other staff who took care of this professional and compassionate leave for Alexander during these extremely difficult times for everyone.”
The statement ended by saying that his family “would politely ask for privacy to deal with the loss.”
Another wrote: “Such a sad loss, Lord Bath will be remembered for many things, his conservation work, his art, his love of life and his love of love. Such a charming man. Missed a lot. “
Lord Bath obtained his title of seventh Marquis of Bath on the death of his father after his father appointed him new lord of Bath.
He even continued to hold a seat in the House of Lords as a Liberal Democrat, but lost his seat after many hereditary peers were excluded.
Lord Bath would then have focused his time on the operation of his safari park, which appeared in the BBC Animal Park series which showed the daily operation of the park to viewers.
