Percy was born as the second child and elder son of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. He became heir apparent to the dukedom in 1995, when his uncle Henry, 11th Duke of Northumberland, died. Percy's parents, now Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, were eager to protect him from "vices and pitfalls", and filed a lawsuit to prevent him from inheriting £1 million and a £250,000 annual income upon turning 18. In 1999, they succeeded in delaying the inheritance, which Lord Percy received at the age of 25. George Percy is also set to inherit Alnwick Castle, which famously appeared as Hogwarts' School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter films. He served as a Page of Honour to Queen Elizabeth II from 1996 to 1998. He is also a direct descendant of Charles II of England through multiple descents.
