A future Duchess of Westminster?

@Deverell Smith

The young Duke of Westminster is said to be "officially off the market." after he was photographed with his new girlfriend, Harriet Tomlinson.

The young couple were photographed during a "romantic getaway abroad," according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Duke and Miss Tomlinson, both 26, "have a lot of shared interests and are both very down to earth and family oriented."

A spokesman for the Duke of Westminster said: "She's a really lovely girl and very much the love of his life."

They met as young children when both were pupils at Ellesmere College, a private school in Shropshire.

The couple recently spent time in California at the "exclusive" Ventana resort in Big Sur, overlooking the Pacific.

"He is happiest when he is enjoying time with Harriet and their close circle," said a source close to the Duke.  "He was left crushed when his father died but Harriet has been a huge ­support and is helping him to get used to his new responsibilities. "

"They're a lovely couple and ­deserve all the happiness in the world."

The Duke of Westminster inherited most of his father's £8.3 billion fortune.  He is the third richest person in the United Kingdom.  His father died on August 9, 2016 at the age of 64.

Harriet Taylor M. Tomlinson was born in late 1990. Her parents, Grahame Montgomery Tomlinson and Anne L. Taylor were married in Chester in September 1988.

I think it is amusing that the article said that "the couple recently spent time in California at the "exclusive" Ventana resort in Big Sur...." Ventana Resort has been closed for over a month now due to a structural failure of a bridge to its north and a landslide to its south all caused by the torrential rain storms we have had here in California. Additionally, the pictures that are in the article with the caption on one that says, "Duke of Westminster, Hugh Grosvenor on holiday in California with new girlfriend, Harriet Tomlinson" couldn't have been taken recently. They're dressed in shorts and summer clothes. I realize they are from England, but no way would they have been dressed this way with the wet, winter conditions we have had in this area of California.

How much do you think his sisters inherited? Just a tenth of the money would be more than enough to upkeep the estates. Couldn't the remainder be shared equally?

The daughters probably have trust funds and will never have too worry about anything. The bulk of estate stays with the duke
