Early life and family[edit]

Lord Montagu is the son of Edward Douglas-Scott-Montagu, 3rd Baron Montagu of Beaulieu (1926–2015), and his first wife, Belinda, Lady Montagu, née Crossley (b. 1932).

His parents divorced in 1974 and later that year, his father married his second wife, Fiona Margaret Herbert, with whom he had another son, Lord Montagu's half-brother, Hon. Jonathan Deane Douglas-Scott-Montagu (born 11 October 1975).[3][4]

He is also the President of the Solent Protection Society, a Governor of Walhampton School, a Director of Beaulieu Enterprises Ltd, and a trustee of the National Motor Museum Trust, the Countryside Education Trust and the Hampshire Archives Trust.[7]

Concerned that local residents were being priced out, Lord Montagu was instrumental in securing social housing in the village of Beaulieu.[8]
