James Clark
James Clark (born 1963) is a former diplomat, now managing director of a coaching and consulting company.[1] He was previously British Ambassador to Luxembourg, and later Consul General at Chicago.[2] He was called "a new breed of diplomat" by The Times.[2]

Clark's appointment as British Ambassador to Luxembourg in March 2004 was heralded with some small controversy, due largely to his being openly gay.[2][3]

On 30 March 2004, he and his partner Anthony Stewart [3] made history by becoming the first officially recognised gay couple to have an audience with Queen Elizabeth II.
