Hedge fund boss James is believed to have been using the government handouts to pay the six employees of his Scottish shooting estate, Glen Affric.
The state-funded Coronavirus Jobs Retention Scheme (CJRS), running since the first lockdown almost a year ago, is designed to help cash-strapped employers survive the lean months of the pandemic.
Vogue met and fell in love with Spencer in 2017 after appearing on Channel 4 reality show The Jump, with the couple going on to marry at Glen Affric in June 2018.
The couple welcomed son Theodore in September that year, while daughter Gigi, now eight months, was born in July 2020.
