June 10, 1905

Hereditary Prince Gustaf Adolf Sweden is now en route to London for his wedding to Princess Margaret of Connaught. The prince and his younger brother, Wilhelm, who will be accompanying him, "were cheered by a large crowd," according to the New York Times. Prince Gustaf Adolf is the elder son of the Crown Prince of Sweden, and, is thus, second in line to the Swedish throne. His bride-to-be is the elder daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Connaught, and a niece of King Edward VII.
