Sir Robert Peel Vanity Fair Print 1870
Sir Robert Peel, 3rd Baronet, GCB, PC (4 May 1822 – 9 May 1895) was a British Peelite and later Liberal politician. The eldest son of the prime minister Robert Peel, he was educated at Harrow and Christ Church, Oxford and entered the Diplomatic Service in 1844. He served as Member of Parliament for Tamworth, his father’s constituency, from 1850 until 1880, for Huntingdon from 1884 and for Blackburn from 1885 to 1886. He was appointed Irish secretary in 1861 in Palmerston’s ministry, but in 1865, under Russell he was succeeded by Chichester Fortescue. His political career was said to be marred by his lack of dignity and his inability to accept a fixed political creed. He was appointed a GCB in 1866.
