A Brief History

Known as Hughie, to his friends and family, Hugh Grosvenor, is the godson of King Charles III, who was not in attendance for the wedding. The Grosvenor family have a long association with the royal family. There is a rumour of a tiff between the mother-in-law of the Duke’s eldest sister, Tamara, and Queen Camilla back in 2004. The Prince of Wales’ late mother, Princess Diana, was godmother to Hugh’s older sister, Edwina.

Olivia Henson went to school with Princess Eugenie and started dating Hugh Grosvenor a few years ago.

When Hugh Grosvenor Became The Duke Of Westminster

Hugh Grosvenor became the 7th Duke of Westminster when his father Gerald, died in 2016, which will make Olivia Henson the Duchess of Westminster upon their marriage. The most recent Duchess is Hugh’s mother, Natalia, who is a godmother of Prince William and becomes the Dowager Duchess of Westminster as her daughter-in-law becomes the new Duchess of Westminster.

Moreover, Hugh is godfather to Prince George and allegedly Prince Harry’s son, Archie.

Prince George did not attend the wedding as he had to go to school. The Princess of Wales was also not present as she is still dealing with her cancer treatment.
