Born in London, Lord Airlie was educated at Eton and served in the Scots Guards during the Second World War. He remained in the army until 1950, when he attended the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester, in order to learn more about estate management.
He maintains two homes on the family’s 69 000 acre (280 km²) estate in Angus: Cortachy Castle and Airlie Castle. He also has a home in Chelsea, London.
He was following in the footsteps of his late father by serving as Lord Chamberlain to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. He remained in the post until 1997. He was made a Knight of the Thistle in 1985.
Lord Airlie has also served as the Lord Lieutenant of Angus in Scotland, and as the Captain General of The Royal Company of Archers and Gold Stick for Scotland. He was also the founding Chancellor of the University of Abertay Dundee (1994–2009). His wife, the Countess of Airlie, is a Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth II.
