What a cute baby! 

There is nothing wrong  he was so handsome. A proof that the BRF doesn´t has to be ugly.

The so-called minor royals of the world seem to be more interesting people than certain more "popular" ones (ah-hem) that are over-exposed. Smiley

what's also sad is that his younger brother, who had planned a life away from the royal household and longed to pursue a career as an architect found that he was required to carry out official royal duties when he inherited the title Duke of Gloucester

it can't be good to be denied to life you want to live and to have to live the life expected of you

Was Prince William a godfather? If Yes, who were his godchildren?

I hadn't known that the Queen refused him permission to marry:

http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/17tisa/Article/



found this quote on the another board

He was involved with Zsusui Starkloff, a Hungarian woman several years older, twice divorced and Catholic.  St. Aubuyn wrote abot the relationship - she met William's parents, but a marriage was out of the question.



Here's a link to an excellent documentary on "the other Prince William":

Prince William of Gloucester was not the first Prince William of Gloucester. Prince William, Duke of Gloucester (1689-1700) was the son of Princess (Queen) Anne of England.

I think he was known as the duke of Gloucester, not Prince William of Gloucester.  There was a Prince William of Gloucester in the 1700s, son of the duke of Gloucester (brother of George III), who later became duke.  This one was one of the rare instances of being His Highness rather than His Royal Highness, since he was a great-grandson of a king.

He was never the Duke as he died two years before his father did. His younger brother inherited the title

I believe Celia was referring to the earlier William of Gloucester, son of Queen Anne.

Today is Prince William of Gloucester's birthday (12/18/41) ...

Princess Alice had to wait a long time to successfully carry a child, poor woman.  She'd had at least 2 miscarriages. How happy she must have been when William was born!  And then to have had Richard in 1944 must have been icing on the cake. 

Here's to the Gloucester family  Champagne

She was a great woman - there is a bit in a biography of her where they were heading for Australia in WW2 when the Duke took up the role of Governor General. William was about 3 and Richard a baby, they were told that they may have to abandon ship but that the children would be unlikely to survive immersion in the waters - the Duchess and Nanny agreed that they would stay and go down with the children.  Fortunately the crisis passed
