Born in 1986 (21 August), this almost 25-year-old (photo below) with a Welsh heritage is not a peer himself, but, as a descendant of a peer, his lineage and connections make him well worthy of a profile here.
Known as “Jake” Warren, this young gentleman was a godson of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Jake’s mother, The Lady Carolyn Warren, is the daughter of the late 7th Earl of Carnarvon (Her Majesty’s friend and former racing club manager), and she is the sister of the present earl, George Reginald Oliver Molyneux Herbert, 8th Earl of Carnarvon. The Lord Carnarvon (also spelled Caernarfon) is additionally the presumptive heir to the earldom of Pembroke and the earldom of Montgomery.
Blessed with fine looks and good prospects, Jake Warren seems not to have been touched by King Tut’s curse, although he is also descended from the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, who funded the dig of Tutankhamen’s tomb, only to die suddenly and famously after the discovery of the mummy. Jake perhaps instead takes after his luckier father, John Frederick Rufus "Johnny" Warren, who rose from humble beginnings in Essex and landed his lady at the expense of suitor Prince Andrew. Johnny now manages Her Majesty’s racing club in his late father-in-law’s place.
Family connections aside, well-placed friends also abound for Jake Warren. Jake attended Ludgrove and Eton with Prince Harry. A royal wedding guest and insider, his name has been linked with many a high profile lady. Jake is also close friends and business partners with Guy Pelly. In fact, “Pell” has been dating Jake’s sister, Susanna, on and off for years. Jake and Guy run a members’ bar, The Birdcage, in the Royal Enclosure garden during the Saturday of Royal Ascot. Look to see Jake there in June of 2012. Additionally, Jake is a Senior Account Executive at a London sports agency, Pitch.
Jake has a younger brother, Alexander Edward Warren (born 1994), who will no doubt be on our radar in the next few years.
