Hugh Richard Louis Grosvenor, 7th Duke of Westminster (born 29 January 1991) is a British aristocrat. He is the third child and only son of the late Gerald Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster and his wife Natalia Phillips, and assumed the title of Duke of Westminster on 9 August 2016 on the death of his father.


Unusually for the children of hereditary peers, the Duke of Westminster and his sisters were educated at a local state primary school, followed by a small private day school, Mostyn House School near the family home of Eaton Hall near the city of Chester before attending Ellesmere College, Shropshire, a public school and part of the Woodard Corporation. He then studied countryside management at Newcastle University.


After university Hugh worked in estate management at Wheatsheaf Investment and the Grosvenor Group before becoming accounts manager at bio-bean, a green energy company.

When he inherited the title of the Duke of Westminster in August 2016, it was believed he would inherit the bulk of the family fortune, currently estimated at £8.3 billion, with considerable trust funds for his sisters.

Personal life

Little is publicly known about the Duke of Westminster's personal life due to his family's efforts to maintain his privacy. However, in October 2013 he earned considerable media attention when he was named a godfather to Prince George of Cambridge.
