Henry George Reginald Molyneux Herbert, 7th Earl of Carnarvon (19 January 1924 - 10 September 2001), was Racing Manager to Queen Elizabeth II from 1969.

The Earl of Carnarvon was only son of the 6th Earl of Carnarvon by his first (American-born) wife Anne Wendell. Like his father, Carnarvon (then known as Lord Porchester) also fell in love with an American, Jean Margaret Wallop. Her grandfather, Oliver Henry Wallop, 8th Earl of Portsmouth, settled in the western United States and married the daughter of a Kentucky judge. Her brother is the former Senator Malcolm Wallop. The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon were parents of two sons — the 8th Earl of Carnarvon, and the Hon. Harry Herbert — and one daughter, Lady Carolyn Warren.

He was an independent member of the Hampshire County Council (though he later took the Tory whip) and became its Chairman. He was also the Chairman of the South East Economic Planning Council.
