Duke and Duchess of Westminster’s Wedding Day Delight in Chester

The Duke and Duchess of Westminster, Hugh Grosvenor and Olivia Henson, expressed their gratitude towards their guests and well-wishers for making their wedding day at Chester’s medieval cathedral a truly memorable occasion. The couple, with a combined fortune of £10.1 billion, were joined by about 400 guests including the likes of Princess Eugenie and TV producer Phil Redmond, with Prince William attending as an usher.

Despite the absence of the King, Queen, and the Princess of Wales who were in France for D-Day commemorations, and the Duke of Sussex, the wedding was a joyous affair. The newlyweds extended their thanks to the people of Chester for their support and contribution to their special day.

In a heartwarming gesture, the couple arranged for free ice cream to be distributed in the city center, in collaboration with local businesses, as well as funding the city’s Summer Flowers project with 100,000 flowers planted in honor of their wedding celebrations. The Duke, who inherited his title and wealth at a young age, is the owner of Grosvenor Group, with properties in London’s prestigious districts and city center developments.

The festivities were briefly disrupted as two women were arrested for releasing orange powder during a protest by Just Stop Oil, calling for the government to phase out fossil fuels by 2030. Despite this minor incident, the wedding day was filled with love, joy, and appreciation for all who played a part in making it a truly special event.
