The British Royal Duke Who Lives In South Africa

There is a fascinating story about a British Royal Duke who owns an entire Dukedom in Scotland but he lives in South Africa where he was born and raised.

He is Bruce Marray, the 12th Duke of Atholl. Another special thing to note about his title is that it not only comes with a mega castle but it gives him the right to control the only private army in Europe.



Duke Bruce set up a business here in South Africa in which he ran a signage business as he did not care much about his Dukedom back in the United Kingdom.

As the Duke, he officially attends some royal events in the Dukedom about once a year in which he inspects all parts of the peerage. He indicated that he had no interest in taking up residence in the UK as he said he is South African and loves South Africa more than anything.

It is fascinating that one would not want to live in such a castle.
