Sir Benjamin Slade, 7th Baronet
Sir (Julian) Benjamin Anthony Slade, 7th Baronet (born 1946), is a successful right-wing businessman. He inherited his baronetcy from his father in 1962, and is usually known as Sir Ben Slade. His older brother, Robert, predeceased their father. Sir Ben was educated at Millfield School. He lives at Maunsel House, Bridgwater, Somerset. Slade is childless and has said he is looking for a male heir who has genetic similarity to one of his further paternal ancestors, who will take an interest in running the estate and to whom he will leave it in trust.
He was married (from the late 1970s to 1991) to Pauline Myburgh (daughter of Major Claude Myburgh) and divorced. He had a relationship with Fiona Aiken (currently Countess of Carnarvon and wife of
The 8th Earl of Carnarvon) for a few years in the 1990s.
His partner until recently was Kirsten Hughes, star of Jane and the Lost City.
Sir Ben himself starred in The Guest Wing, a television programme about owners of country houses, which was shown on Sky Atlantic in April 2012.
