Nursing Home, Windsor, Berkshire. He has three younger brothers and
one younger sister. He also belongs to the Dutch nobility as
Jonkheer Charles Wellesley, as well as a member of the Spanish
nobility and Portuguese nobility. On, 2010, the Marquess of Douro
claimed the title of Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo together with the
accompanying title Grandee of Spain, as his father ceded them to

succession of the dukedom to the Marquess by Royal Decree of May
21, 2010 as confirmed by the notice in the Official Bulletin of
State dated June 12, 2010. As a result, the Marquess of Douro is
now the 10th Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo and also remains the heir
