GUINNESS heiress Honor Uloth died following a freak swimming pool accident at her household’s
£3.5million dwelling, an inquest has heard.
The 19-year-old daughter of Rupert Uloth and Woman Louisa Jane Guinness was discovered unconscious
on the backside of a swimming pool throughout a household barbecue this summer season.
Miss Uloth’s death was this week ruled a tragic accident by a coroner.
Speaking of their loss, her family said: “We have lost a daughter and sister who brought untold light and joy into our lives.
“She was so full of fun, laughter, kindness, and adventure. She had this knack for bringing people together and
making them feel good.”
The inquest heard how Miss Uloth – who was studying history of art at Oxford Brookes University – was spotted in the pool by her 15-year-old brother Rufus, who dived in to help her.
She had suffered a broken shoulder and brain injuries and was pronounced dead in hospital six days later.
The current Earl of Iveagh and the Guinness brewery family have an estimated worth of around £906million.
