The Rt. Hon. Arthur Edward Rory Guinness, 4th Earl of Iveagh, DL (born 10 August 1969), styled Viscount Elveden until 1992, is a member of the Guinness family. An Anglo-Irish aristocrat, he is the son of Benjamin Guinness, 3rd Earl of Iveagh and Miranda Guinness. He is usually known to his family and friends as Edward Iveagh or Ned Iveagh.

During the latter part of the 1990s he topped the richest under-30 list with wealth exceeding £2 billion, but in 2012 his wealth was reported to be €790 Million by the Sunday Independent[1]

On October 27, 2001, the earl married interior designer Clare Hazell, at the Church of St Andrew's and St Patrick's, Elveden, Suffolk.

Lord Iveagh lives on the 22,486 acre (91 km²) Elveden Estate in Suffolk, England, though not in the main house, Elveden Hall, which is still owned by the family but is empty. It operates as a 'one unit' farm concentrating on root vegetables with cereals as a break crop. Approximately 4,000 acres (16 km²) comprises forest.

Lord Iveagh sold Farmleigh, the family's Irish home, to the Irish Government in 1999.
