From Louis Spencer to Cassius Taylor, UK’s top eligible aristocrats | Royal | News


The billionaire Duke of Westminster, once considered the UK’s most eligible bachelor, is now officially off the market. He recently wed his new wife Olivia, the Duchess of Westminster, in a lavish ceremony at Chester Cathedral.

The grand affair was attended by over 400 guests, including Prince William and Princess Eugenie. However, there are still several aristocratic bachelors who stand to inherit impressive titles and vast fortunes….

Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp

Among them is Louis Spencer, a nephew of Princess Diana and cousin to Princes William and Harry. As the eldest son of Diana’s brother Earl Spencer and his first wife, Victoria Lockwood, he has three glamorous older sisters – Lady Kitty, Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer.

He has been dubbed ‚the world’s most eligible bachelor‘ and ‚Prince Harry lite‘, reports the Mirror.

At 30 years old, Louis is known for being ’super private‘, but he also has a budding acting career. He graduated with a First from ArtsEd, an independent performing arts school based in Chiswick, and is signed to talent agency Tavistock Wood.

Listed as Louis John Lyons, he joins other famous faces represented by the agency, including Lily James, Rebel Wilson and Dustin Hoffman.

Louis Spencer is set to inherit the sprawling 13,500-acre Althorp estate in Northamptonshire from his father, Earl Spencer, despite having three elder sisters. His eldest sister Kitty has expressed her support, stating: „We’ve grown up understanding that it’s Louis to inherit, and Louis will do an incredible job.“

Charles Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley

In Royal circles, Charles Armstrong-Jones maintains a relatively low profile but remains one of the eligible bachelors within the family. As the son of Earl Snowdon and grandson to Princess Margaret, he holds the distinction of being a titled great-nephew to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Currently 26th in line for the throne, he mirrors the educational path of Princes William and Harry by attending Eton College and later Loughborough University. Now a musician, Charles has been praised by his sister Margarita in Tatler for his musical talents: „He is very into his orchestral music. He is self-taught [and he] can sing, play the piano and the guitar. Somehow he combines it all together including online choirs on his laptop into one piece of music.“

Cassius Taylor.

A lesser-known member of the Royal Family, Cassius Taylor, who is 49th in line to the throne, also appears to be single.

The 27 year old, son of Lady Helen Taylor and her husband Timothy, is a grandson of the Duke of Kent, who is a cousin of the late Queen. Caspar has largely kept out of the public eye but has been seen at major Royal events like Trooping the Colour, joining the family on the balcony in years gone by.

Caspar grew up with his older brother Columbus and younger sisters Eloise and Estella. He attended the prestigious Wellington College in Berkshire before earning an art management degree from Goldsmiths University.

Today, he’s carving out a name for himself as a DJ and serves as a brand ambassador for fashion powerhouse Stone Island, sharing glimpses of his life, including moments with his cousin Lady Amelia Windsor, on Instagram.

Once named one of the UK’s most eligible bachelors by Tatler, Caspar told the publication, „I always knew I’d end up in the creative industries in some capacity, due to my upbringing, similar to everyone in my family.“

George Percy, Earl Percy

Not a member of the Royal family but closely linked, George Percy remains somewhat elusive.

At 40, the former page of honour to the late Queen is the heir apparent to the Dukedom of Northumberland, along with a vast 100,000-acre estate, a fortune estimated at £509million, and the historic Alnwick Castle. An alumnus of Eton and Edinburgh University, where he shared a flat with Pippa Middleton, sister of the Princess of Wales, George Percy keeps a decidedly low profile.

Charlie Gordon-Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara

At the tender age of 29, Charlie Gordon-Lennox, known as the Earl of March and Kinrara, has already carved out an enviable life for himself.

Educated at Oxford, he’s now taken up residence in the Big Apple where he’s launched a menswear brand dubbed Understated.Era.

As the future Duke of Richmond, he stands to inherit the breathtaking Goodwood estate in Sussex, a sprawling 12,000-acre wonderland that boasts both the famed Goodwood racecourse and its very own aerodrome.

Reflecting on his unique upbringing, he shared with Magneto magazine: „I never realised how different it was until I was ten or 11. I’d go to my mates‘ houses because they were allowed to go on their computer for longer than I was, and they would come to my house because it was better for hide and seek. And then I started to realise, oh, wait, this is a bit weird.“
