Talbot was the son of Eva Joicey and Col. Milo George Talbot, fourth son of James Talbot, 4th Baron Talbot of Malahide. He was educated at Winchester College and Trinity College, Cambridge, and entered the Diplomatic Service in 1937.[1] He succeeded his cousin James Talbot in the barony in 1948.[2] In 1954 he was appointed Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Laos.[3] The post was upgraded to that of ambassador the following year.[4] He remained in the post until 1956, when he was appointed a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George.[5]

A keen gardener, Lord Talbot of Malahide commissioned and sponsored the book, The Endemic Flora of Tasmania.

Lord Talbot of Malahide died in April 1973, aged 60. The British barony of Talbot de Malahide died with him. He was succeeded in the Irish barony of Talbot of Malahide by his kinsman, Reginald Talbot.[2]
