Yep - he was made a peer in 2011. He is married to a lady-in-waiting to one of the royals after all.

It is in China and is named after the former name of the city in which it is located. It has been a major port for hundreds of years and was captured and occupied by the British in the Opium Wars. A language and a well known cooking style are named after the former name of the city.
