Though there are quite not a few representatives of the English aristocracy among the ancestors of Grant, Hugh’s family was very modest in wealth - enough for life, nothing more. In his interviews, he has repeatedly admitted that the lack of luxury only benefited him and his brother, as they realized that they could only count on themselves since childhood.
In 1979 Grant graduated from high school and, choosing the profession of an art critic, was enrolled in the prestigious college of Oxford. His student life passed very actively. He joined the club for selected students of the Piers Gaveston Society and began performing in a theatrical comic troupe.
