Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of William Herbert, 18th Earl of Pembroke
In April 2009, the Earl announced his engagement, which took place over the Easter weekend, to his long-time girlfriend Victoria Bullough. The couple were married at the Church of St Mary & St Nicholas in Wilton, near Salisbury in Wiltshire, on 29 May 2010.
More DetailsHide DetailsThe Earl had dated Bullough since 2005, and since 2007, they had lived together in Wilton House, his family's country seat.
Their first child, Lady Alexandra Ekaterina Eloise Herbert, was born at Salisbury District Hospital on 3 April 2011. A son and heir, Reginald Henry Michael, styled Lord Herbert, was born on 21 October 2012. Their third child, The Hon. Louis Charles Alexander Herbert, was born at Salisbury District Hospital on 20 Sept 2014.
The former Victoria Bullough (born circa 1985), is a daughter of Michael Bullough, owner of McEwens, one of the few remaining independent department stores in Scotland. Her mother, Sandra Lee-Graham Bullough, is a former model.
Bullough completed a degree in interior architecture at Chelsea College of Art and Design, and graduated with First Class honours. Victoria grew up in Huntingtower, Perth, and was educated at Glenalmond College. The Countess of Pembroke is a Patroness of the Royal Caledonian Ball.
He then worked with Sebastian Conran as an industrial designer, being forced to quit that job in October 2004 to assume the responsibilities of the house and estate at Wilton, a year after his father's death from cancer.
More DetailsHide DetailsIn a July 2005 interview with The Observer, Herbert spoke frankly of the responsibilities and difficulties in managing a historic home and estate. He wanted to increase the number of celebrity events, such as Madonna's birthday party, at Wilton House to increase revenues; however, opening the property to more tourists does not pay in the long run, he said, as it increases wear-and-tear on the house. He also spoke frankly of the need for him to marry and father a son to secure the succession (for the sake of his immediate family as well as the estate and house and all those who depend on it for a livelihood), but he was not aware at that time who was the heir presumptive. In interviews, he stated that he believed that the heir is "one of the Fitzwilliamses". However, his heir presumptive at that time was the present George Herbert, 8th Earl of Carnarvon (born 1956), who has legitimate male issue.
He became Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery in 2003 following the death of his father, Henry Herbert, 17th Earl of Pembroke.
