Born in Cairo, Aziz Ezzat Pasha was educated at Jesus College, Cambridge and the now defunct Royal Military Academy, Woolwich. He began his career in the court of Khedive Isma'il Pasha and was then promoted to deputy minister of foreign affairs. Following the United Kingdom's unilateral grant of independence to Egypt in 1922, he was appointed as Egypt's first minister plenipotentiary to the Court of St. James's, serving for five years, from 1923 until 1928. He served as Egypt's Foreign Minister from 18 February 1935 until 30 January 1936.
Aziz Ezzat Pasha was a member of the Regency Council during King Farouk I's minority. He served as regent from 28 April 1936 until 29 July 1937, alongside Prince Muhammad Ali Tewfik and Sherif Sabri Pasha. As such, he was allocated EGP 15,000, a huge sum at that time.
Aziz Ezzat Pasha was greatly involved with the famous Egyptian sports club Al-Ahly. On 2 April 1908, he became the club's second president. He was the first Egyptian to hold that post, and kept it until 16 April 1914. He later became Honorary President of the club (1929-1941).
Aziz Ezzat Pasha's second wife, Behiye Yeghen Hanim, whom he married in 1892, was a granddaughter of Khedive Isma'il Pasha from her mother's side. Their daughter Aysha Hanim (1893 - 1945) married in 1912 (and later divorced in 1927) Prince Muhammad Ali Hassan Pasha, another grandson of Khedive Isma'il.
