In 2020 the Duke further extended his charitable endeavours by donating £12.5million to the UK’s efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the time Mr Grosvenor said: “On behalf of my family and everyone at the Grosvenor Estate, I want to say a huge thank you to all our amazing NHS staff and everyone providing critical frontline services.”

He added: “We are all humbled and incredibly grateful that you are working tirelessly to keep us safe and keep the country functioning.

“NHS staff and key workers don’t work in isolation. They have children and families whose health and well-being will also be highly impacted by this crisis.

“As they keep us safe, I want to help provide as much support to them and their families as we can.”

Prince George was christened on October 23 2013 with a total of seven godparents, including his father’s cousin Zara Tindall.
