Millionaire aristocrat, 72, still on the hunt for a young wife

Millionaire aristocrat, 72, on the hunt for a young wife and breeder is STILL single

Millionaire aristocrat, 72, seeking a young wife and breeder is STILL single a year after launching his search (and is now promising free rein over his credit card to sweeten the deal)

Sir Benjamin Slade is a descendant of King Charles II and is worth millions

The multi-millionaire baronet lives at the 13th-century Maunsel House

Aristocrat is also the owner of Woodlands Castle in Somerset

He has expressed his desire to find a wife and someone who will give him an heir

Caused outrage when he reeled off a list of requirements for his breeder in 2017

A multi-millionaire aristocrat who caused outrage when he publicly announced his search for a young wife and breeder is still single more than a year on and has now revealed his efforts to sweeten the deal.

Sir Benjamin Slade, 72, first announced his unorthodox approach to finding a partner on This Morning in 2017, when he reeled off an extreme set of demands his ideal candidate should meet including that she would be no taller than 5ft6in, and aged between 30 and 40.

Now the eccentric aristocrat, a baronet who presides over a 13th century estate in Somerset, has appeared on Good Morning Britain to confirm his search has so far proved fruitless over a year later, but that he was trying to be less aggressive.

I have changed my spiel, I now say I want romance, I want to give you my credit card so you can shop until you drop, he said.

I want to take you to exotic places and I love gorgeous meals and I rush off on secret holidays. So thats the sales spiel, I can change it, he said.

The eccentric multi-millionaire aristocrat appeared on Good Morning Britain where he explained he was trying a less aggressive approach to finding a partner and was hoping they would enjoy being whisked away on holidays and shopping trips

Sir Benjamin, who is a descendant of King Charles II, lives at the 13th-century Maunsel House and also owns Woodlands Castle, also in Somerset.

He runs several businesses including a wedding venue and a B&B, and is hoping that his ideal partner would be able to take over the managment.

If you can get a wife who is also a chief executive then its a deal, two for the price of one, he said.

The aristocrat said on the ITV daytime programme that he would be looking to have children with any potential partner.

I have been looking very hard and Ive had lots of excitement. Im just trying to propose a deal but a lot of people dont want to have any more children.

I have lots of fabulous girlfriends but they are over 50 and they dont want to or cant have any more children.

I think its quite important to have children and have a family but I think its about time we started.

His eyebrow-raising list of requirements for the perfect breeder stipulated that she should be no taller than 5ft6ins, aged between 30 and 40, possess a gun licence and be castle trained.

But despite the promise of 50,000 a year in pocket money, the baronets dream woman has so far failed to materialise.

The aristocrat said on the ITV daytime programme that he would be looking to have children with any potential partner and wouldnt be able to consider adoption because he was too old

When asked if hed considered adoption, Sir Benjamin pointed out that his age was an issue.

You dont know what youre going to get though do you, he said.

They did tell me I am too old to adopt and that I am very right-wing, you have to be politically correct, if you hunt, shoot, fish and eat meat you do not get to adopt children you dont get to adopt children

Sir Benjamin has previously been called out on his attitudes to women.

During his first appearance on This Morning back in April 2017, he gave presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes an eyebrow-raising list of requirements for the perfect breeder.

These included that they be aged between 30 and 40, possess a gun licence and be castle trained.

Sir Benjamin Julian Alfred Slade, known as Sir Ben Slade, inherited his baronetcy from his father in 1962, was previously married to Pauline Myburgh from the late 1970s until 1991 before they divorced.

The childless man has since enjoyed romances with Fiona Aitken, who went on to become the second wife of the Earl of Carnavon her marital home is Highclere Castle, where Downton Abbey was filmed.

And he courted Kirsten Hughes who he says went off with my handyman in 2011.
