Deciding who to invite to a wedding can be an awkward endeavour.
Particularly when you're a member of British high society trying to factor in an enormous feud between your friend, a prince, and his entire family, the, uh, literal royal family. Actually, that might be the least relatable predicament on the planet. But that's what one Hugh Grosvenor, a.k.a the 7th Duke of Westminster, is dealing with right now.
Hugh, 32, is set to marry Olivia Henson, 30, next June, and the wedding is expected to be a very big deal. Mostly because these people are VERY posh.
Hugh knows both Prince Harry and Prince William very well. He attended both their weddings, and he and Harry travelled together to South Africa to fight rhino poaching in 2015.
He's also Prince George and Prince Archie's godfather.
But only one of them, along with their parents, will be at the wedding, because Hugh's ridiculously fancy upper-class ceremony is now at the centre of the ongoing, seemingly never-ending drama between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the rest of the British royals.
Accordingly, an invitation did not make it to California.
You see, friendship is one thing, but deeply entrenched ties to 'The Firm' is another. Queen Victoria quite literally gave Hugh's family their title in the 1800s.
Hugh, thanks to the good fortune of being born a boy, will inherit his family's entire estimated (AUD)$17 billion fortune. When he became the 7th Duke of Westminster upon the death of his father, he became the richest man in Britain under 35.
