A baby boy who will inherit a £315million fortune has been born.

Little Henry is set to become the Marquess of Worcester, after his father Bobby and grandfather Harry, Duke of Beaufort, who shed the title when they married.

As well as a prestigious moniker, the young boy will inherit the £315million Badminton estate as the first-child of the first-child, Gloucestershire Live reported.

The baby is at least the second blue-blooded youngster to be born this month – the other being Harry and Meghan's second child Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor.

The Duke of Beaufort hailed news that his son and wife Lucy Yorke-Long had welcomed the little one.

"It is with great pride that I have become a grandfather for the first time.

Bobby and Lucy held their wedding at the family's 40-bed, Gloucestershire mansion on the 52,000-acre estate in September last year.
