George Lascelles, Earl of Harewood (1923-2011)
George Lascelles, the 7th Earl of Harewood, eldest grandson of King George V, has died at the age of 88. Lord Harewood, unlike most of his royal relatives, was a noted and enthusiastic authority on classical music, particularly opera. I always found the intersection of my profession and my hobby represented by his life fascinating. His son David (b 1950) now becomes the 8th Earl. RIP.
