Prince George‘s godfather Hugh Grosvenor has sent out invites to guests for his upcoming wedding.

The 33-year-old seventh Duke of Westminster, who carried one of the Royal Standards at King Charles‘ coronation last year, will marry his long-term partner Olivia Henson on June 4 at Chester Cathedral. With just over three months to go, the couple have now begun asking friends and family to save the date, reports Hello magazine – and some familiar faces are thought to be on the invite list.

Prince William and the Princess of Wales are expected to be at the ceremony, and it’s been speculated that Hugh could give a special role to one of their three young children. The Duke of Westminster is the godfather of 10-year-old Prince George. Other anticipated guests include the Duke and Duchess of Kent, Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, and Princess Alexandra, the entire van Cutsem clan and the Manners family.

Questions remain over whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be at the big wedding however, as their daughter Prince Lilibet’s birthday is on the same day. Hugh is close friends with both Duke of Sussex and the Prince of Wales, and has been able to stay on good terms with both despite their well-publicised brotherly feud.

The Duke of Westminster, who was given the title upon his father Gerald Grosvenor’s death in 2016, is thought to be worth £9.8 billion – making him one of the richest people in the UK. The family’s Grosvenor Group owns 300 acres in London’s wealthiest postcodes in central London, including Belgravia and Mayfair, alongside huge country estates. The family has a 96,000 acre Reay Forest Estate in Scotland, as well as the 23,500 acre Abbeystead Estate in Lancashire and the 37,000-acre La Gargantua estate in Cordoba, Spain. He is descended from Nicholas I of Russia through his mother, Natalia Grosvenor.

Hugh’s bride, 31-year-old Olivia Henson, is the daughter of stockbroker Rupert Henson and his wife Caroline. A senior account manager at luxury ingredients firm Belazu, she has two siblings – 29-year-old Jasper and 26-year-old Emilia, who are descended from John Manners, the 5th Duke of Rutland. Olivia and Hugh met through friends in London and are said to have dated for two years before Hugh proposed in April.
