The Duchess of York expects a visit from the stork

February 17, 1926

The Associated Press is reporting that the Duchess of York, is "expected to become a mother" in April.  The 25-year-old Duchess - the former Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon - married the Duke of York at Westminster Abbey on April 26, 1923.

This will be the first child for the Duke and Duchess of York, and will be third in line to the British throne.

The couple have been looking for a London residence for some time, and have leased 40 Belgrave Square, which adjoins the home occupied by Prince and Princess Arthur of Connaught.

[Yes, the New York Times, which published the AP report, did have this headline "Stork to visit Duchess of York."]
