Back in England in July , Herbert started asking in the House of Commons for a Royal Commission to inquire into the conduct of the Mesopotamian campaign. He opposed the routine evasiveness of Prime Minister Asquith, a close friend , by speaking in the House four times on Mesopotamia. His critics saw in his obstinacy a personal vendetta  against Sir Beauchamp Duff , the commander-in-chief in India, and Sir William Meyer, the financial secretary, but his persistence paid off, and a Special Commission Mesopotamia was subsequently appointed. In October , Herbert started his post as a liaison officer with the Italian army, whose front line lay in Albania.

It had been a favoured retreat of Aubrey's elder brother the 5th Earl, but following their father's death it became the property of his step-mother Elsie Howard, who died there, having frequently entertained "eminent folks from the world of politics, religion mainly Catholic, of course and science".
Aubrey bequeathed the Villa to his wife Mary Vesey, and it later became "a veritable literary colony for poets, painters and writers", including their son-in-law Evelyn Waugh, Alfred Duggan, Peter Acton and Brooke Astor. Aubrey Herbert married his distant cousin, the Hon.

The dental operation resulted in blood poisoning from which he died in London on 26 September This was five months after the death of his elder half-brother, George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon , the famous Egyptologist, said by legend to have died from the " curse of Tutankhamun ", whose tomb he had discovered five months earlier.
