Lady Emily Shard – Family, Career, and Personal Information


Lady Emily Shard, born November 23, 1975, is a film producer. She is married to Matthew Shard, and together they have three children; twins Isaac Shard and Ida Shard and the youngest Otis Shard.

Her father is David Lascelles, the 8th Earl of Harewood, and her mother is Margaret Messenger. Lady Emily Shard is the eldest in her family, and her younger siblings include Benjamin George Lascelles, Alexander Edgar Lascelles, and Edward David Lascelles.

Lady Emily Shard’s grandfather was George Lascelles, the grandchild of King George V and Queen Mary, nephew of King Edward VIII and King George VI, and first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September 2022.


Lady Emily Shard’s primary work is that of a film producer or production manager. Maybe she took after her father, who is also a producer. Lady Emily Shard has produced several films in her career, including The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001, Entrapment in 1999, Cold Mountain, Bears, Polar Bear, and Dolphin Reef, among many others.

Personal Life

In February 2008, Queen Elizabeth II, at a Privy Council meeting, gave Royal Consent for Lady Emily Shard to get married to Matthew Shard. As mentioned earlier, they have been together for 14 years and are blessed with three children.

Her Father

Lady Emily Shard’s father, just like her, is a film producer. He is also a television producer; some of his works include; Daddy’s Girl in 2002, Second Sight in 1999, and The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders in 1996, among others.

Lady Emily Shard’s father is the eldest son of the 7th Earl of Harewood, George Lascelles, and upon his birth, he was 13th in the succession line to the throne. David Lascelles married his first wife, Margaret Rosalind Messenger, in 1979 at the St Mary’s Church, Paddington, in London. They had four children, though Lady Emily Shard and her brother Benjamin Lascelles had already been born before marriage.

Lady Emily Shard’s father divorced Margaret Messenger in 1989 and married Diane Jane Howse on March 11, 1990, the current Countess of Harewood.

When George Lascelles died in 2011, Lady Emily’s father succeeded to the Earldom of Harewood, and he is now the 8th Earl of Harewood. David Lascelles serves as the honorary lifetime president of the Leeds United Football Club, a tradition his father started in 1961. In any case, Lady Emily’s father dies, and he will be succeeded by his second son Alexander Lascelles since Benjamin was born out of wedlock.

Net Worth and social media

Most of Lady Emily Shard’s income is from her work as a film producer. Given her work as a producer and the number of films she has produced, she must be worth a lot. Some sources say that Lady Emily Shard’s net worth is between 1-5 million dollars, but it has not been confirmed yet.

She does not seem to be active on social media, but she has a private Instagram account at @emily.lascelles, has 517 followers, and follows 488, but she has yet to post anything on her Instagram page.
