Lucy Yorke-Long, a high-profile prime London estate agent, has joined the upper echelons of the gentry after marrying the Marquess of Worcester.

The 34-year-old high flier, who currently works for upmarket interiors and property development firm Finchatton, started her career in financial PR before joining Chelsea boutique estate agency Maskells and then VanHan, which specialises in selling London property to Ultra High Net Worth buyers.

While working there she sold property worth £200m in just a few years.

Yorke-Long then set up her own property consultancy in January 2018 before joining Finchatton in August last year.

Although her own family gets a mention in Debretts, she is joining a much more blue-blooded set.

52,000 acres

The Marquess of Worcester’s father is ‘Bunter’, the 12th Duke of Beaufort who family seat is the 52,000 acre Badminton House estate in Gloucestershire, which is famous for its horse trials.

It is there that the happy couple tied the knot over the Bank Holiday weekend, it has been revealed by the Daily Mail.

Described as a ‘pared back affair’ due to Covid restrictions on gatherings, it still involved a fair amount of glamour which, in today’s social media world, was communicated to the world via Instagram.

After the ceremony Lucy and her husband Bobby Worcester changed into riding outfits and cantered off to their honeymoon.
But the need to work in the property industry for a living may have dulled for Yorke-Long – her new husband is due to inherit his father’s £315 million fortune.
