Marmaduke Mickey Percy

Who is Marmaduke Mickey?

Marmaduke Mickey Percy Grylls is the middle child of TV celebrity Bear Grylls and his wife Shara Grylls, who have three sons. While there has been a lot of interest in the personal lives of Man vs. Wild star Bear Grylls, it’s not surprising that his children have caught the attention of the media. Marmaduke is currently in his mid-teens.

When and where did Marmaduke Mickey Percy Grylls arrive on the scene?

Marmaduke Mickey Percy Grylls was born in the United Kingdom on April 6, 2006, making him 15 years old in 2021. He is the middle child of Bear Grylls, the OBE TV presenter and explorer from Man vs. Wild, and his wife Shara Cannings-Knight.

Marmaduke is of white origin and was raised in an English home.

The meaning of Bear’s second son, Marmaduke, is ‘follower of Saint Maedoc’ or ‘leader of the oceans; Mickey means ‘gift from god,’ and Percy is derived from Perseus (prtho in Greek), which means ‘to destroy.’

Background & Members of the Family

Marmaduke is the second of three sons; his older brother, Jesse (born in 2003), is now 18, and his younger brother, Huckleberry Edward Jocelyne Grylls (born on January 15, 2009), will be 12 years old in 2021.

Conservative lawmakers Sir Michael Grylls (who died in 2001) and Sarah Ford are his paternal grandparents.

Bear Grylls’ family had a long history of players, with Maramaduke’s great-grandfather Neville Ford and great-great-great-grandfather William Augustus Ford both playing first-class cricket.

The star child’s maternal grandfather died 12 weeks before his paternal grandfather died in early 2001.

When did Marmaduke Mickey Percy Grylls’s Parents Were Married?

Marmaduke Bear Grylls and Shara Cannings-Knight, Mickey Percy Grylls’ parents, married in 2000 and have been together ever since. On New Year’s Eve 1997, the two met on a beach in Scotland. They started dating soon after and married after a couple of years together.

Grylls had not yet achieved TV stardom when he married; instead, he had served in the British Special Air Services (SAS) until 1997, when a mishap during a parachute jump over Southern Africa shattered his back in three places.

He was cast in the survival series Man vs. Wild in 2006 and worked on it until 2019, totalling 78 episodes. Shara took care of the household and raised three sons: Jesse, Marmaduke, and Huckleberry, while Bears went on adventures and pursued his TV career.

Unlike his brother Jesse, who posts about his personal life on Instagram, Marmaduke is currently off the grid.

In 2021, what will be Marmaduke’s net worth?

Marmaduke Mickey Percy Grylls is still a teenager and has yet to find a professional career. He does, however, benefit from his famous father’s vast wealth.

Grylls attended summer camps with his brothers, and he may follow in his father’s footsteps and go on adventures in the future. According to reports, Marmaduke’s older brother Jesse, aged 11, was abandoned on Saint Tudwal’s Island off the coast of North Wales in August 2015 as part of a meticulously planned hoax.

Marmaduke’s father, Bear Grylls (born Edward Michael Grylls), has a net worth of $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The survival TV series Man vs. Wild (2006-19) provided the majority of his income, and he also served as a producer for Bear Grylls: Mission Survive, You vs. Wild, and Running Wild with Bear Grylls.

Shara, his mother, has also pursued a career as an author, having published two books to date: Marriage Matters (2006) and Never Stop Holding Hand: And Other Marriage Survival Tips (2012).

They currently live on the River Thames in London in a 100-year-old houseboat. Grylls also owns an island off the coast of Wales that has a nature reserve.
