He was baptised into the Church of England on 23 June 1991.
Unusually for the children of hereditary peers, Hugh Grosvenor and his sisters were educated at a local state primary school, followed by a small private day school, Mostyn House School, near the family home of Eaton Hall, Cheshire. He then attended Ellesmere College, Shropshire, a public school, from 2000 to 2009. At Ellesmere, Grosvenor served as a School Prefect, Captain of Meynell House and Captain of the First XI Football Team in his final year. He was awarded Full Colours in Football, and as a member of the School's Combined Cadet Force he obtained a BTEC First Diploma in Public Services with Distinction.
After university, the then Earl Grosvenor worked in estate management at Wheatsheaf Investment from 2013 to 2014, and the Grosvenor Group from 2014 to 2015, before becoming Accounts Manager at Bio-bean, a green energy company, in January 2016.
He has three sisters, and a number of nieces and nephews.
Little is publicly known about the Duke of Westminster's personal life, as a result of his family's efforts to maintain his privacy. However, in October 2013, he received some attention when he was named a godfather to Prince George of Cambridge.
