Inheriting the royal legacy, Prince Archie has a godfather whose name carries as much weight as that of his bloodline. Prince Harry and Prince Williams’s longtime friend, Hugh Grosvenor, the 7th Duke of Westminster, heralded his position as Prince Archie and Prince George of Wales’s godparent after their birth. But the relationship goes beyond that. He is also the godson of King Charles while his mother is the godmother of Prince Williams.

Grosvenor inherited his title and the Grosvenor estate following his father’s demise. Presently reigning an estimated $11 billion net worth, the Duke is also getting ready to tie the knot with Olivia Grace Henson.

Furthermore, in an interview with Let’s Talk-Off-Camera with Kelly Ripa podcast, Perry also revealed a cute nickname that he refers to her, “Little Lili.”.
