Pembroke was the eldest son of Sidney Herbert, 1st Baron Herbert of Lea, only son of Henry Herbert, 10th Earl of Pembroke, by his second wife Catherine (née Woronzow). His mother was Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Lieutenant-General Charles Ashe A'Court. He succeeded his father in the barony of Herbert of Lea in 1861 and the following year he inherited the earldom of Pembroke on the death of his uncle.[1]

Pembroke served as Under-Secretary of State for War from 1874 to 1875 in the second Conservative administration of Benjamin Disraeli.[2]


Lord Pembroke married Lady Gertrude Frances, daughter of Henry Chetwynd-Talbot, 18th Earl of Shrewsbury, in 1874. He died in May 1895, aged 44, and was succeeded in his titles by his younger brother the Hon. Sidney Herbert. Lady Pembroke died in September 1906, aged 66.[1]
