It's a boy for Princess Alexandra

February 29, 1964

Princess Alexandra gave birth to a son today, reports the New York Times.  The birth took place at the Princess' home, Thatched House Lodge, in Richmond Park.

The 27-year-old Princess married the Hon. Angus Ogilvy last April.  He is the second son of the Earl and Countess of Airlie.

The new baby is 13th in line to the British throne, but he will drop down to 16th place after three royal births later this year.  Queen Elizabeth II is expecting her four child next month.  Her sister, Princess Margaret, and the Duchess of Kent, sister-in-law of Princess Alexandra, are expecting their second babies.

The baby's name has not yet been announced.  He will not have a title.  

Princess Alexandra is the only daughter of the late Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.
