I always thought it interesting that not only was the current Prince William named in honor of him, he looks quite a bit like him also. Something about the facial structure, length, etc.

And it's not as much of a stretch when you consider that the Bowes-Lyonses, Spencers and Montagu-Scotts were all interrelated.

I had the same idea, looking at more pictures of William of Gloucester. That in some pictures he showed similarities with prince Horse.

Prince William of Gloucester

Oh yum. See, this is what happens when you inject (extra) Scottish blood into the RF line  Wink

Well the Scottish blood injection by the Queen mum didn't last long Sad



It's worked for Eugenie!  She even looks a bit like the Queen Mum.  Eug seems to be the only one who benefited from the Scottish genes.

Prince William was a handsome man.  Richard was a handsome man as well but his older brother shone much more.  It is so sad that he died so young but his younger brother has done a fine job of carrying on the Gloucester Dukedom and the current Duchess is an asset to the RF.

Pity that the Prince William,  named after this dashing Cartland style hero hasn't inherited a)his looks or b) his charisma  Angel

I'm guessing that picture was taken when he was in the bloom of youth - teens or early 20's.  Who knows what he would have looked like when he got older.

I've always liked The Gloucesters.

He would still be dashing, here's in his 30s:




The second was taken a month before his death.

At least he still had a full head of hair....unlike his namesake  Angel

For UK residents there's a documentary about him on Thursday night on Channel Four called "The Other Prince William".

I wonder what it must have been like for William's younger brother, Richard, when William died. Obviously it was horrible on a purely personal level, but the current Duke was planning on being an architect and by all accounts was a shyer, less "glamorous" person. Then his brother dies tragically and he is bumped up in line. I really think that the Duke of Gloucester has taken on his role with dignity and class, and since he was not "trained" for it, I give him extra credit for his efforts over these many years.

ITA. And I think Birgitte has also been a tremendous help and support to him. The Gloucesters are pure class.

Does it touch on the fact he had porphyria?

No idea. I'll report back if I get a chance to watch it. I think it tells the story of his relationship with a Hungarian divorcee, which wasn't exactly met with great joy by his family.
