A Prussian-Connaught marriage


Is Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia about to propose to Margaret or Patricia of Connaught? That is one of the media rumors today (August 15, 1901) . The Prince, who is the eldest son of Kaiser Wilhelm II, is about to arrive in London. His visit to Britain is apparently "the fulfillment of a long-standing promise," and the revival of a rumor of a "matrimonial suit for the hand of one of the daughters of the Duke of Connaught." Prince Wilhelm was expected to head to the North of Scotland for grouse shooting.
