Thomas Patrick Anson AKA Lord Lichfield

MSN News: "LONDON (Reuters) - Patrick Lichfield, whose dashing looks, royal pedigree and artistic talent made him one of the fashion world's best-known photographers, died in hospital on Friday after suffering a stroke. He was 66." ONLY

which is a pity, he was 3 years younger than me
He went to school at Harrow then moved to the army officer school of Sandhurst before joining the Grenadier Guards.

His interest in photography was sparked when his mother gave him a camera as he was sent off to boarding school at the tender age of seven.

I was lucky enough to end in the ranks - not an officer - which meant I got to know ordinary people.
my own photography started when I found and old camera lying about at 230 Widney Lane Solihull.

You can see the bad habits of some the english upper classes killing them off, drinking, and probably smoking too like many of the royals, born with a silver spoon in his mouth and access to cigarettes too.
