Things to see and do in and around the ar­chi­pel­ago

Hugh Grosvenor was just an­other 25-year-old liv­ing his life in bliss­ful semi-ob­scu­rity, writ­ing blogs, ex­chang­ing Snapchats, and par­ty­ing with fam­ily friends like Prince Wil­liam when, on Au­gust 9, the sixth Duke of West­min­ster passed away. Sud­denly, the young ac­count man­ager, who had been work­ing for the Uk-based tech com­pany bio-bean Ltd, in­her­ited his fa­ther’s ti­tle and es­tate, mak­ing him the third-rich­est per­son in the UK with a per­sonal for­tune of an es­ti­mated £9.3 bil­lion. He now owns, among many other things, 40 hectares of prime real es­tate in May­fair and 80 hectares in Bel­gravia—both in Lon­don and two of the most ex­pen­sive ar­eas in the world—as well as plots in Ox­ford, Cheshire, Scot­land and Spain. The new duke is rarely pho­tographed, seen out or ac­tive on so­cial me­dia, but a post­ing on the In­ter­net re­vealed can­did snaps from his £5 mil­lion 21st birth­day bash at the fam­ily’s Ea­ton Hall es­tate in Cheshire. His friends, in­clud­ing Prince Harry, were asked to bring a bot­tle of wine, not to drink, but as a gift for his ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion.
