Prince Harry always struck me as being none too bright. The present Duke by contrast, is intelligent, educated and has a lovely wife, and their 3 children seem well adjusted by all accounts. Prince George, later Duke of Kent, was by far the most intelligent of king George's sons, although his rumoured drug use and various affairs with both sexes seem to put that intelligence into question. I believe, his was arranged marriage (to Princess Marina) too. Not sure though.

Did Prince Henry's appointment as Governor General of Australia confirm the Crown's importance as the center of Empire unity?

I have been perusing the catalogue all day when I should have been working.

Dear me! All those antiques!

I was reading the list of Christie's officers --and one guy is named Rothlisberger.  As a US NFL fan, I immediately wondered if he played football like his "cousin" in Pittsburgh!

And in the bio on Henry, error:  he was not the first prince to go to a public school; Arthur of Connaught was.

What do you guys think inspired the Gloucesters to auction all these things off? Coming right on the heels of them giving up their Kensington apt this year....🤔
They are so quiet and I only ever notice them during state occasions, so any input would be greatly appreciated  Secret

Edited to add: unless itís stuff from Kensington apt 1?

I sort of expected this since they moved from Apartment 1 to the Old Stable Block (right?).  They lease out their country place and since all their kids are established thereís probably not a lot of things they need...especially all this stuff.  Hopefully each of the kids have kept some keepsake items.  With the profits they can afford to donate to charity, set up funds for the grandkids, or whatever.  And this means that there will be less to do when the pass...and lower the tax burden. 

Itís a bit sad but very logical.  With both the Duke and Duchess in their mid 70s itís a good time to start divesting their items.

Also, hopefully the RCT got to go through and pick out what they felt would be good additions to the collection.
