    Churchill was born at Che­quers five months to the day after his grand­fa­ther be­came Prime Min­is­ter, a year into the Sec­ond World War. He was ed­u­cated at Eton Col­lege and at Christ Church, Ox­ford. His fa­mous grand­fa­ther died in 1965, and his fa­ther died three years afterward.

    Be­fore be­com­ing a Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment, he was a jour­nal­ist, no­tably in the Mid­dle East dur­ing the Six-Day War, dur­ing which time he met nu­mer­ous Is­raeli politi­cians, in­clud­ing Moshe Dayan, and pub­lished a book re­count­ing the war. Dur­ing the 1960s he cov­ered con­flicts in Yemen and Bor­neo as well as the Viet­nam War. In 1968, he vis­ited Czecho­slo­va­kia to record the Prague Spring. In the early 1970s at Bi­afra, Nige­ria, he wit­nessed both war and famine. The in­dis­crim­i­nate bomb­ing of civil­ians was an out­rage to him, in trou­ble spots in­clud­ing Com­mu­nist China, and the col­lapse of An­to­nio Salazar's au­thor­i­tar­ian regime in Por­tu­gal. Like other mem­bers of his fam­ily, he began a lec­ture tour of the United States. When the De­mo­c­ra­tic Con­ven­tion was held in the wake of pub­lic as­sas­si­na­tions at Chicago in 1968 he was at­tacked by the po­lice. In 1965, he be­came a mem­ber of the Penn­syl­va­nia So­ci­ety of the Sons of the Amer­...

    Churchill was not able to take up his grand­fa­ther's par­lia­men­tary seat at Wood­ford in Essex when he stepped down at the 1964 gen­eral elec­tion, three months be­fore his death at the age of 69. How­ever, he was at the cen­tre of the Con­ser­v­a­tive cam­paign: de­spite being quite in­ex­pe­ri­enced in pol­i­tics, he had been ap­pointed as Ed­ward Heath's per­sonal as­sis­tant. Heath was al­ready a se­nior cab­i­net min­is­ter, and the fol­low­ing year was elected leader of the party fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of Alec Dou­glas-Home, who lost the gen­eral elec­tion to Labour and Harold Wil­son. Churchill's first at­tempt to enter Par­lia­ment was at the 1967 Man­ches­ter Gor­ton by-elec­tion. In spite of the un­pop­u­lar­ity of the in­cum­bent Labour gov­ern­ment, he lost, but only by 577 votes. When vis­it­ing an en­gi­neer­ing firm he was met by a Rom­mel gag,[citation needed][nb 2] high­light­ing, as his fa­ther had told him, the com­par­a­tive dis­ad­van­tage in his name...

    Churchill was the son of Ran­dolph Churchill (1911–1968), the only son of Sir Win­ston Churchill, and of Ran­dolph's wife Pamela Digby (1920–1997), later to be­come fa­mous as Pamela Har­ri­man. His par­ents di­vorced in 1945. His fa­ther mar­ried June Os­borne: their daugh­ter was Ara­bella Churchill(1949–2007). Churchill's first mar­riage, in July 1964, was to Mary "Min­nie" Car­o­line d'Er­langer, the daugh­ter of the banker Sir Ger­ard John Regis d'Er­langer and grand­daugh­ter of Baron Emile Beau­mont d'Er­langer.The cou­ple had four chil­dren. Churchill's sec­ond mar­riage, to Luce En­ge­len, a Bel­gian-born jew­ellery maker, lasted from 1997 until his death.

    Churchill lived in Bel­gravia, Lon­don, where he died aged 69 on 2 March 2010 from prostate can­cer, from which he had suf­fered for the last two years of his life.
