Baby boy inherits Badminton estate worth £315 million

He’s just been born, but a new baby boy is already set to be “worth £315 million” ($A577 million) and become “heir to a family estate with a 40-bed mansion. Baby Henry is in line to become the Marquess of Worcester after his dad Bobby and grandfather Harry, Duke of Beaufort, shed the title when they married, The Sun reports. Along with the prestigious title, the child inherits the Badminton estate and its £315 million fortune – that’s $A577 million.

After the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor, Henry is the second blue-blooded youngster to be born this month, Gloucestershire Live reports. The Duke of Beaufort broke the news that his son and wife Lucy Yorke-Long had welcomed the newborn into the world. The former rocker with the band The Listening Device, who now lives in the family seat in the Cotswolds, said: “‘I am absolutely delighted.

It is with great pride that I have become a grandfather for the first time.

Bobby and Lucy tied the knot at the family’s 40-bed, Gloucestershire mansion on the 21,000-hectare estate in September last year. The newlyweds rode off into the sunset following the wedding as their guests waved from outside the imposing mansion. Due to the coronavirus restrictions, only 40 family and friends could attend the wedding at the country estate, where Prince Charles and Prince William are known to play polo. Bobby’s sister Isabella, 29, and Lucy’s sister Aalish showed off the big day on their social media accounts.

The pair met through mutual friends when they sat next to each other at a dinner party.

The recently married Duke said he was “absolutely delighted” when the pair announced their engagement, and Bobby’s mum, the Duke’s ex-wife, Tracy, said: “My kids and I are thrilled to have Lucy as part of our family – we all adore her. She is sunny, intelligent, and thoughtful – a joy to be with. Lucky Bobby.
