Charles Weston, 3rd Earl of Portland (19 May 1639 – 3 June 1665) was the only son and heir of the 2nd Earl of Portland and Lady Frances Stuart.

He succeeded his father as Earl of Portland in 1663.

He was killed in the Battle of Lowestoft. Since he never married to produce a direct heir, his title passed to his uncle, Thomas Weston.
