Herbert was elected as Member of Parliament for Wilton in Wiltshire in 1877 but lost his seat in the 1885 general election.[3] This was somewhat of a shock given that the seat of the Earls of Pembroke was at Wilton House and his family dominated Wiltshire politics.[citation needed] Herbert was then chosen early in 1886 to replace William Grantham, who had just been appointed a judge, in Croydon. He was duly elected[4] and served under Lord Salisbury as a Lord of the Treasury between 1886 and 1892.[5] Although considered an able Member of Parliament, he was perhaps best known for his good looks and was widely regarded as the most handsome MP at the time.[citation needed]

Herbert succeeded his brother as Earl of Pembroke in 1895.[1] He continued his political career in the House of Lords as Lord Steward of the Household under Salisbury and Arthur Balfour between 1895[6] and 1905.[7] He was sworn of the Privy Council in 1895.[8]

Lord Pembroke became President of the Marylebone Cricket Club for a year in 1896.[9]
