After serving as an army officer (1858-72), he became private secretary to his cousin Lord Northbrook, viceroy of India. In 1877 he went to Egypt to help resolve Egypt's financial problems.

Until his resignation in 1907, he remained the country's real ruler, profoundly influencing Egypt's development as a modern state
