Duke of Connaught improving

April 21, 1937

The Duke of Connaught, great-uncle of King George VI, remains confined to his bed in his hotel at Bournemouth "with a muscular weakness of the leg," reports the New York Times.

The 86-year-old Duke, the seventh child of the late Queen Victoria, is reported "officially to be making good progress."

Due to his "delicate state of health," the Duke is unlikely to attend the Coronation next month.
