Natalia Ayesha Grosvenor, Duchess of Westminster (née Phillips; born 8 May 1959) is the wife of Gerald Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster.

On 7 October 1978, Natalia Phillips married Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster.

Natalia and the Duke have four children:

 Lady Tamara Katharine Grosvenor (born 20 December 1979); married Edward van Cutsem on 6 November 2004, at Chester Cathedral. Edward and Lady Tamara have two sons, Jake Louis Hannibal van Cutsem and Louis Hugh Lupus van Cutsem.
 Lady Edwina Louise Grosvenor (born 4 November 1981); married Daniel Robert Snow on 27 November 2010, at Bishop’s Lodge, Woolton, Liverpool. Daniel and Lady Edwina have a daughter, Zia Snow.
 Hugh Richard Louis Grosvenor, Earl Grosvenor (born 29 January 1991; heir to the title of Duke of Westminster)
 Lady Viola Georgina Grosvenor (born 12 October 1992)

As Duchess of Westminster, Natalia has presided over the remodeling of the traditional family seat, Eaton Hall, and has been closely involved in the redesign of its formal gardens and park. She also takes an interest in the family's fine art collection.

The Duchess is a director of Alex Moulton Bicycles.

She is patron of a number of charities based in the north west, near the family home in Cheshire, including:

 Save the Family 
 CLIMB (Children Living with Inherited Metabolic Diseases)
 Barrowmore House

From October 1997 to October 2007, she was Patron of the Chester Childbirth Appeal.

She is the youngest of five children of Lt.-Col. Harold Pedro Joseph Phillips (1909–1980) and his wife, Georgina Wernher (1919–2011). Her eldest sister is Alexandra Hamilton, Duchess of Abercorn and another sister is Marita Crawley, who wrote the libretto for the opera “The Poet and the Tsar” about their great-great-great-grandfathers, Alexander Pushkin and Emperor Nicholas I of Russia. Natalia is one of three godmothers to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Her family have long been close to the British Royal Family, being distantly related to both Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. They are also descendants, through non-Catholic marriages, of Sophia, Electress of Hanover, in whose Protestant descendants is vested the right of succession to the British throne according to the Act of Settlement 1701.

They also descend from Pushkin, Russia's most renowned author and nobleman, as well as from his African great-grandfather, Abram Petrovich Gannibal, the youth believed to have belonged to a family of tribal chieftains who became a protégé of Peter the Great.

The sisters' maternal grandmother was born Countess Anastasia de Torby (later Lady "Zia" Wernher), younger morganatic daughter of Grand Duke Michael Mihailovich of Russia (a grandson of Tsar Nicholas I) by his wife Countess Sophie von Merenberg, morganatic daughter of Prince Nikolaus of Nassau (himself brother of Adolphe, Grand Duke of Luxembourg) by his wife Natalya Aleksandrovna, Pushkin's younger daughter.

Lady Zia's sister Countess Nadezhda de Torby (or "Nada") was the wife of Prince George of Battenberg (later George Mountbatten, 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven), elder maternal uncle of the Duke of Edinburgh. The Torby sisters were third cousins of the prince through their common ancestor, Tsar Nicholas I. Natalia's paternal grandparents were Joseph Harold John Phillips and his wife Mary Mercedes Bryce, whose niece Janet Mercedes Bryce (daughter of Major Francis Bryce of Hamilton, Bermuda) married David Mountbatten, 3rd Marquess of Milford Haven, Nada Mountbatten's son.

This way, I get an idea of what these other sites would list, and can price accordingly. Due to "life circumstances" and illness, I have to give up some things, so I hope that the buyer will give this the love and wear it deserves! IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS - I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET YOUR OWN AUTHENTICATION DONE, AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED MORE PICS, I AM HAPPY TO OBLIGE!This is in VERY GOOD Condition. I hate to say Excellent or Mint, especially when pearls are in a piece because there may be a teeny tiny chip in the finish on a few - certainly under close inspection but not at all noticable when wearing! This is over 30 years old, but no chips in the GLASS, no tarnishing, Crystals / Rhinestones all still clear, bright and shiny":l GREAT condition!Chanel Earrings are all props for pics, unless above Bonus is given!
