This is an original press photo. Sir Esme Howard, new British Ambassador at Madrid is the first Roman Catholic to represent Great Britain envoy to Spain.

Esme William Howard, 1st Baron Howard of Penrith, GCB, GCMG, CVO (15 September 1863 - 1 August 1939) was a British diplomat. He served as British Ambassador to the United States between 1924 and 1930.
Born at Greystoke Castle, near Penrith, Cumberland, Howard was the youngest son of Henry Howard, son of Lord Henry Howard-Molyneux-Howard, younger brother of Bernard Howard, 12th Duke of Norfolk. His mother was Charlotte Caroline Georgina, daughter of Henry Lawes Long and Catherine Walpole (daughter of Horatio Walpole, 2nd Earl of Orford), while Henry Howard and Sir Stafford Howard were his elder brothers. He was educated at Harrow. In 1885, he passed the Diplomatic Service examination, and was assistant private secretary to the Earl of Carnarvon as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland before being attached to the British Embassy in Rome. In 1888, he arrived in Berlin as the embassy's third secretary, and after retiring from the Diplomatic Service four years later, he was made assistant private secretary to the Earl of Kimberley, the Foreign Secretary at the time.
