THE Duke of Westminster, Hugh Grosvenor, and his fiancée, Olivia Henson, are to be married at Chester Cathedral.

The couple, who became engaged at Eaton Hall in April of this year, have arranged for their wedding to take place on Friday, June 7, 2024. Hugh Grosvenor is Prince George's godfather and owner of the Grosvenor Group.

A spokesperson for the Duke, who is a former pupil of Ellesmere College, and Miss Henson said: "The couple has chosen the cathedral for both its beauty and long association with the Grosvenor family, including to the Duke personally.

"Cheshire is the Grosvenor family’s ancestral home and as Miss Henson’s connection to the region continues to grow, they are keen to plan their wedding there."

The couple say they are incredibly grateful for the warm messages of congratulations they have received since their engagement was announced.

The Duke and his family have an estimated wealth of just under £10bn and he recently topped the Sunday Times Rich List for under 35s.

The Grosvenor Group owns about 300 acres of land in Mayfair and Belgravia, as well as major city centre developments such as Liverpool’s ONE shopping centre, and the 32-year-old duke inherited this when his succeeded his father in 2016.

The Duke’s charitable activity through the Westminster Foundation focusses on helping vulnerable children and young people access opportunities so they can thrive in life, providing grants and working closely with organisations supporting families, schools and local communities.

At the start of the pandemic in 2020, the Duke made £12.5 million available through his foundation to NHS Charities Together and other charities.

The Duke also represents Team GB at Olympic Skeet Shooting competitions overseas and in the UK.
