Who is Olivia Henson, the new Duchess of Westminster?

Olivia Henson and Hugh Grosvenor are married, in what has been dubbed as the ‘society wedding of the decade’.

Henson, 31, married Grosvenor, 33, in a ceremony on Friday 7 June, making them the new Duke and Duchess of Westminster.

Being the seventh Duke of Westminster, along with an estimated fortune of £10.1 billion thanks in part to owning 50 percent of Mayfair (!), made Grosvenor one of the most eligible men in Britain up until 2021 when he met Henson.

Prince William is set to be the only senior member of the Royal Family in attendance at the wedding held at the Chester Cathedral, where he is expected to perform the role of usher. The Kate Middleton is not expected to attend as she continues cancer treatment.

King Charles, who is Grosvenor’s godfather, Queen Camilla, and Prince Harry, whose son Archie is Grosvenor’s godchild, are also not expected to attend.

Who is Olivia Henson?

Little is known about Olivia Henson as she has a minimal social media presence. However, her schooling may sound somewhat familiar. After attending primary school in Oxford, she attended Marlborough College – which counts Kate and Pippa Middleton among its alumni.

She ventured to Dublin, Ireland to Trinity College for university, where she received a 2:1 in Hispanic Studies and Italian.

Henson has now worked at Belazu, a B Corp company for over five years and is currently a key account manager based in London. However, it has been reported that the pair plan to move to Chester following the wedding.

Belazu imports high-quality ingredients such as rose harissa, extra virgin olive oil, and preserved lemons from across Europe. It is unclear whether Henson will remain in the role following the wedding after the pair spent a day in May making charity appearances together.
