The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Prince of Wales and his younger brother, Prince Henry are now "coupled" in the 'royal rumor sweepstakes.
The "good Dowagers of the British isles," especially those who are the mothers of eligible young women, appear to be "much concerned over the apparent diffidence" of the two royal princes toward marriage.
In the last few years, there has been much speculation on "one lady or another" as a possible royal bride, but the princes apparently are not paying any attention to the rumors, and are content to remain bachelors for the time being.
Today, the girl most likely is Lady May Cambridge, the daughter of the Earl of Athlone and his wife, Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone.
Lady May is 20 years old, and is being mentioned as the Prince of Wales' prospective bride. She and the Prince of Wales are first cousins, as Lord Athlone is the younger brother of Queen Mary. Princess Alice is a first cousin of King George V, which makes Lady May and the Prince of Wales second cousins as well.
