British title
The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica

Lord, in the British Isles, a general title for a prince or sovereign or for a feudal superior (especially a feudal tenant who holds directly from the king, i.e., a baron). In the United Kingdom the title today denotes a peer of the realm, whether or not he sits in Parliament as a member of the House of Lords. Before the Hanoverian succession, before the use of “prince” became settled practice, royal sons were styled Lord Forename or the Lord Forename.



How To Become A Lord

How to become a Lord in modern England

As you know, the title Lord is still in use in modern English society. For example: Followers of hit show The Apprentice will be familiar with Lord Alan Sugar. The famous World War 1 recruitment poster that announced, “your country needs YOU” featured the military leader Lord Horatio Kitchener. Lord Snowdon is the famous photographer who was once married to Princess Margaret. And the international ambassador for the Wedgwood pottery company is hereditary peer Lord Wedgwood.

These four famous Lords have a title of nobility and became a Lord because they either:

1: Inherited their title: For example, hereditary peer Lord Wedgwood became a Lord following the death of his father when the title passed to him.

2: Were given a life peerage: The Queen can also make someone a Lord. She bestows Life Peerages following recommendations by the Prime Minister or the House Of Lords Appointments Commission. These people often sit in the House of Lords and include the likes of Lord Sugar.

BUT there is a third route…
