    Churchill was born at Che­quers just after his grand­fa­ther be­came Prime Min­is­ter, a year into World War II, and 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. In the 1960s he cov­ered con­flict 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. When the De­mo­c­ra­tic Con­ven­tion was held in the wake of pub­lic as­sas­si­na­tions at Chicago in 1968 he was at­tacked by the po­lice. Like other mem­bers of his fam­ily, he began a lec­ture tour of the United States. In 1965, he be­came a mem­ber of the Penn­syl­va­nia So­ci­ety of the Sons of the Amer­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion....

    Churchill was not able to take up his grand­fa­ther's seat at Wood­ford in Essex when he stepped down at the 1964 gen­eral elec­tion, just three months be­fore his death at the age of 90. But he was at the cen­tre of the Con­ser­v­a­tive cam­paign being re­cruited, al­though still quite in­ex­pe­ri­enced in pol­i­tics, 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 Man­ches­ter Gor­ton by-elec­tion in 1967. 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 the Rom­mel gag,[citation needed][clarification needed] high­light­ing as his fa­ther had told him of 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: 1. Randolph Leonard Spencer-Churchill (born 1965) 2. Jennie Spencer-Churchill (born 1966) 3. Marina Spencer-Churchill (born 1967) 4. John Gerard Averell "Jack" Spencer-Churchill (born 1975) Churchill's sec­ond mar­riage, to Luce En­ge­len, a Bel­gian-born jew­ellery maker, lasted from 1999 until his death.

    Churchill was born at Chequers while his grandfather was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and was educated at Eton College and at Christ Church, Oxford.

    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. In the 1950s he covered conflict in Yemen and Borneo, and in the 1960s the Vietnam War. In 1968 he visited Czechoslovakia to record the Prague Spring. In the early 1970s at Biafra 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'sauthoritarian regime. When the Democratic Convention was held in the wake of public assassinations at Chicago in 1968 he was attacked by the Police. Like other members of his family he began a lecture tour of the United States.

    Winston was not able to take up his grandfather's old seat at Woodford in Essex at the 1964 general election. But he was at the centre of the Conservatives campaign being recruited, although still quite inexperienced of politics as Edward Heath's personal assistant. Heath was already a senior cabinet minister, and the following year was selected leader of the party. Churchill's first attempt to enter Parliament was at the Manchester Gorton by-election in 1967. In spite of the unpopularity of the incumbent Labour Government, he lost, but only by 577 votes. When visiting an engineering he was again met by the Rommel gag, highlighting as his father had told him of the comparative disadvantage in his name. Winston was still a journalist with the Daily Telegraph when his father died; the paper's proprietor, Lord Hartwelltook the decision to employ Martin Gilbert to continue the work on the former Prime Minister's biography Randolph had started. Churchill became Member of Parliament for t...

    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). He is a third cousin of Max Mosley and a fourth cousin, once removed, of Samantha Cameron. Churchill's first marriage, in July 1964, was to 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: 1. Randolph Leonard Spencer-Churchill(born 1965) 2. Jennie Spencer-Churchill (born 1966) 3. Marina Spencer-Churchill (born 1967) 4. John Gerard Averell "Jack" Spencer-Churchill (born 1975) Churchill's second marriage, to Luce Engelen, a Belgian-born jewellery maker, lasted from 1999 until his death. His mother's will shared his inheritance with his first wife.
