The Royal family is undoubtedly blessed with immense wealth and privilege, but when it comes to the godparents of Prince George, their fortune seems rather modest.When Prince William and Kate Middleton were deciding on godparents for their firstborn child, they broke away from tradition by choosing close friends and family members instead of other royals or high-ranking aristocrats to take on the role.The chosen few included Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, William Van-Cutsem, Zara Tindall, and The Duke of Westminster.

Hugh Grosvenor, the 7th Duke of Westminster, has a long-standing connection with the Royal family. The 33-year-old British aristocrat and billionaire businessman, who is set to marry his fiancee Olivia Henson on June 7, inherited his title and control of the Grosvenor Estate, then valued at an estimated £9 billion, after his father's death in 2016.

His estimated net worth of £10.6bn now places him among the world's wealthiest billionaires, reports the Mirror.Hugh's late father, Gerald Grosvenor, was a close friend of King Charles, who was asked to be one of Hugh's godparents following his birth in 1990.Gerald's widow, Natalia, is a godmother to Prince William, and in return, the late Princess Diana was chosen to be a godmother to Gerald's second daughter, Lady Edwina Grosvenor.The ties between the two families have remained robust.
