When Hugh Grosvenor became the seventh Duke of Westminster and Britain's youngest billionaire last year, he secured his status as one of the world's most eligible bachelors. Nine months later, the Duke is reportedly off the market.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the 26-year-old Grosvenor is in a relationship with Harriet Tomlinson, a fellow pupil at the private Ellesmere College in Shropshire. The couple, who were recently pictured together on holiday in California, are said to be "blissfully happy."

"They have a lot of shared interests and are both very down to earth and ­family-oriented," a source close to Grosvenor told The Mirror. "She's a really lovely girl and very much the love of his life."


Grosvenor, who is Prince George's godfather, inherited the majority of an estimated £8.3 billion fortune and became the seventh Duke of Westminster when his father, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, died of a heart attack last August at the age of 64. He is now the third richest person in the UK and the 68th richest person in the world.

Tomlinson, who works as a consultant on the estate agency desk at recruitment firm Deverell Smith in London, is said to have been a great support to the Duke during recent months.

"He is happiest when he is enjoying time with Harriet and their close circle," the source added. "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."

When he's not traveling with his new girlfriend, Grosvenor works as an account manager for Bio-bean, a green technology company. In January 2012, he made headlines for throwing a 21st birthday party for 800 guests, which was estimated to have cost £5 million.
