Prince Christopher in serious condition


January 13, 1940

Prince Christopher of Greece, 51, is said to be in serious condition at his home in Athens, according to the AP. The prince has been ill for some time, and has taken "little food since Wednesday."
The prince is an uncle of the Duchess of Kent. He is married to Princess Francoise d'Orleans, and they have an infant son, Michael. Christopher was first married to the American Nancy Leeds, the widow of the tin plate king, William Leeds. Nancy, who was created Princess Anastasia in her own right, died of cancer in 1923. A part of her fortune was left to Prince Christopher.
