TBH it speaks volumes that no-one charged with the care of the MANY antiquities at Blenheim has not recognised it before. Even those with a cursory knowledge of the History of Art would recognise it as Roman.. it simply could not be anything else !

Many centuries artist used to make roman style copies. Now it's hard to identify original pieces without an expertize.

The Earl of Onslow has slammed the National Trust's plan to rebuild his ancestral home, which burnt down in a fire two years ago.

The National Trust has said it will rebuild Clandon Park house, the 18th-century Palladian-style mansion in Surrey, with plans to create cafés and a giftshop on the site.

Rupert Onslow, the 8th Earl of Onslow, said the trust should be honouring its remit to 'preserve and protect' and questioned whether the organisation should be spending £30 million to rebuild the house from scratch.

No date, so far. Afaik, it's not even known if they are going to marry this year or next. Nowadays people often take a lot of time to organize their big weddings, bu of course I hope for a big wedding this year.

The Code Napoléon which is the base for most inheritance systems in Europe (all children of a deceased person have the right on a so-called "legal portion") was never established in the UK. There the inheritance rules are completely different from France, Germany, the Benelux, the Scandinavian countries, etc. In the UK it still is possible that the eldest son of a Peer gets the bulk of an estate. Often this is balanced with a regulation to compensate siblings, but not always. Look at Diana: her brother received the whole estate. His sisters probably have inherited something, but it is clear the bulk is with the Earl.

That is why UK aristocrats often still own the historic estates: on the Continent, after each passing away, the estate becomes fragmented over various heirs.

Many Houses, for an example the Bernadottes and the Orange-Nassaus have prevented fragmenration by placing all historic properties, archives, jewels, inventories, artworks, in the ownership of family foundations. As these are no natural persons, these can not die and therefore inheritance rules and succession taxation is not in question there.

Possibly the young Duke of Westminster inherited all but he has to pay an allowance when his sisters leave the parental home.

Does the new Duke really need $12 billion to look after the estate?

He inherited it. Properties in the best areas of London with steady rising prices. 1 million or 12 billion, he was the heir and he was lucky to be the late Duke's son. That is all what we can say.

It's not like his sisters were not also taken care financially.

Not just London; he also inherited properties in Paris and in Spain.
The Grosvenor Group has a wide reach.
