An historical question

Mrs NotaSheep and I have just watched 'The Duchess' which is 'A chronicle of the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire'. My question is this: Wikipedia relates  that her much needed son, William George Spencer Cavendish, was 'Born in Paris, France' on 21 May 1790, what was a British aristocrat doing giving birth in Paris less than a year after the start of the French Revolution?
