Princess Patricia is in love with with a peer who loves another

January 18, 1908

The Los Angeles Times has an exclusive report about Princess Patricia of Connaught, "the handsomest member of the English royal family."  She is, according to the dispatch, is "tall, stately, has an elegant figure, deep blue eyes, full of thoughtfulness, almost melancholy," and she is said to be "consumed with a hopeless passion for a young English peer" who prefers "the stage door of the theater to the private entrance of the court."

Princess Patricia is the third and youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Connaught. Her elder sister, Princess Margaret, was married in 1905 to Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden. 

The name of the young peer has not been made public.
