Henry Allen John, 8th Earl Bathurst DL , styled Lord Apsley from 1942 to 1943, was a British peer, soldier and Conservative politician  died he was 84.. He was most recently known for an altercation with Prince William.

(1 May 1927 – 16 October 2011)

Background and education

The eldest son of Allen Bathurst, Lord Apsley, and his wife Violet (née Meeking), he was educated at Eton College, Ridley College, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, and Christ Church, Oxford.

Military and political career

His father having been killed in 1942 while on active duty during World War II, Bathurst succeeded to the family titles on the death of his grandfather, the 7th Earl Bathurst, in 1943. He joined the military in 1948 and served in the 10th Royal Hussars and later the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars. He later held political office under Harold Macmillan as a Lord-in-Waiting (government whip in the House of Lords) from 1957 to 1961 and as Joint Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department from 1961 to 1962. He was a Deputy Lieutenant for Gloucestershire from 1960 to 1986, following which he left politics to run the family estate based around Cirencester Park. According to the 2003 Sunday Times Rich List he was tied at position #904 with a number of others.

Publicity

Bathurst was rather notoriously involved in an altercation with Prince William in the summer of 2003.[1] According to the noted sources, Lord Bathurst, owner of Cirencester Park, Gloucestershire, the altercation occurred on the property of Lord Bathurst, who was driving a Land Rover jeep, when Prince William, after playing polo at the club, overtook Lord Bathurst in a Volkswagen Golf car. Lord Bathurst, unaware of the driver's identity, was infuriated by what he saw as a reckless disregard for the driving rules that guide the cooperation between his estate and the polo club. In his attempt to keep up with the Prince, Lord Bathurst engaged in off-road manoeuvres, finally being stopped by the Prince's security team.[2] As Lord Bathurst told the BBC, "There are rules in the polo club about driving on [the Bathurst family] estate, and people have to stick to them."[3] Ultimately, no harm was done, as there were no resulting injuries and Clarence House issued a formal apology to Lord Bathurst.

Marriages and children

  • Judith Mary Nelson (1959 –divorced 1976)[4], with whom the Earl had three children:
    • Allen Bathhurst, 9th Earl Bathurst, born 11 March 1961
