Newborn Olympia will not inherit the family property and fortune because of the male birthright, which dictates that it must go to the eldest son or the nearest male heir.
Followers quickly inundated the comments with their best wishes to the parents, with one writing: ‘She’s so gorgeous! Congratulations!’
George became Marquess of Blandford in 2014 after the death of his grandfather and was named one of the ’10 Most Eligible People in the Country ‘by Tatler in 2017, before his marriage.
His ties with the biggest names in British society have expanded and go back generations.
Camilla revealed the news to their combined 10,000 followers on their Instagram pages, saying the couple was “ so in love with our little angel. ”

Recalling how their relationship started, Camilla shared Tatler: ‘One day he just started to hold my hand.
A gift from Queen Anne to John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, in 1704, Blenheim Palace was a reward for his victory over the army of Louis XIV of France in the War of the Spanish Succession.
Since then, the palace has been entrusted to duke after duke and is currently home to the 12th, Jamie Spencer-Churchill.
Winston Churchill was born in Blenheim, which became a World Heritage Site in 1987.
The 200,000-square-foot estate has 187 rooms, shading Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, and attracts approximately 500,000 visitors annually.
‘Our parents have been friends for years, which has made life a lot easier. We didn’t have to do the “meet the parents” thing. ‘
George, the son of James Spencer-Churchill and his first wife Rebecca Mary Few Brown, asked the question in Soho House, Istanbul, and the couple began planning the wedding.
Camilla, who did not hire a wedding planner, explained that she had always thought she would get married at her mother’s Hampshire home, but her future husband “ thought it important that we celebrate Blenheim. ”
The couple married at nearby St. Mary Magdalene Church before returning to a party under a marquee on the palace’s South Lawn.
Interior designer Camilla was given away by her father James, an architect.
After the ceremony, the couple celebrated with friends and family at the palace, which sits on 2,000 acres.
Camilla wore a white Dolce & Gabanna dress, the designer’s first made-to-measure wedding dress ever to be worn in Britain.
As part of her bridal outfit, Camilla also wore an heirloom that has been in the Marlborough family since 1895.
The diamond and pearl encrusted Boucheron tiara, sewn into the bride’s hair, was originally a wedding gift to Consuelo Vanderbilt, one of the ‘Dollar Princesses’, from her father at the time of her wedding to the 9th Duke of Marlborough .
