Prince Henry goes again to the Buccleuchs

January 5, 1925

It is understood in court circles that Prince Henry is going to follow the example of his older brother, the Duke of York, and marry a Scottish girl. He is about of pay his fourth visit to the home of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch. But according to official sources, "matters have not reached a point where any definite prediction of an engagement" between Prince Henry and Lady Mary Scott "can be made judiciously."
There are also rumors about a possible marriage for Prince George, who is "regarded by his father and mother as being entirely too young to know his own mind." Thus, it is understood that the young prince is not contemplating marriage, although he has frequently danced with the same girl, "whose name has been mentioned as the object of his matrimonial intentions."
The Prince, who is "the best foxtrotter in the royal family, is perfectly content with "being greatly in demand in the younger smart set."
