All England in mourning for the late Duke of Clarence

January 17, 1892

All the sermons in London "today contained reference to the affliction which has befallen the royal family," reports the Associated Press.  The remains of the late Duke, who died on January 14, have been removed from Sandringham to the parish church, where the Prince of Wales and his family attended service today. 

No female member of the royal family is expected to attend the Duke of Clarence's funeral.  Queen Victoria has been advised by her doctors, to not leave Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.
