About Henry George Reginald Molyneux Herbert, 7th Earl of Carnarvon

Henry George Reginald Molyneux Herbert, 7th Earl of Carnarvon, KCVO, racing manager to Queen Elizabeth II.

The Earl of Carnarvon was the only son of the 6th Earl of Carnarvon by his first (American-born) wife Anne Wendell. Like his father, Carnarvon (then known as Lord Porchester) also fell in love with an American, Jean Margaret Wallop. The two were married on 7 January 1956. Her grandfather, Oliver Henry Wallop, 8th Earl of Portsmouth, settled in the western United States and married the daughter of a Kentucky judge. Her brother is the former Senator Malcolm Wallop.

The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon had two sons, the 8th Earl of Carnarvon, and the Hon. Harry Herbert—and one daughter, Lady Carolyn Warren.

Carnarvon was an independent member of the Hampshire County Council (though he later took the Tory whip) and became its Chairman. He was also the Chairman of the South East Economic Planning Council. He was invested as a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO) in 1982. He died aged 77 in 2001.
