Lascelles, Henry George Charles, 6th Earl of Harewood (1882 -1947)

Henry George Charles Lascelles styled the Honourable Henry Lascelles before 1892, and Viscount Lascelles between 1892 and 1929, was the son of Henry Lascelles, 5th Earl of Harewood, and Lady Florence Katherine Bridgeman.
Lascelles attended the Royal Military College before being commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Grenadier Guards on 12 February 1902. He went on to command the 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards during the First World War. After the war, Lascelles remained interested in local Yorkshire issues and events, often contributing to the Leeds Board of Management. He was president of the Yorkshire Rural Community Council.
Lord Harewood married Princess Mary, only daughter of King George V and Queen Mary, at Westminster Abbey, on 28 February 1922. They had two children.
After their marriage, Lord and Lady Harewood divided their time between their homes at Chesterfield House (destroyed after the Second World War) in London, Goldsborough Hall, at the Harwood Estate in Yorkshire, and finally at Harewood House itself, which became their family home in 1929, on his accession to the earldom. In 1931 Princess Mary became officially known as the Princess Royal.
The Earl died of a heart attack at the age of 64 at Harewood House.
It is believed that Virginia Woolf based the character of Archduke Henry on him in her novel Orlando, a tribute to her lover Vita Sackville-West (Henry Lascelles was one of West's suitors).
