The Gloucesters present their son Wllliam

May 10, 1942

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester pose with their infant son, Prince William Henry Andrew Frederick, who was born last December.  This is the first official photo of the infant prince, who is in a cradle "used by the Duke when he was a baby," reports the New York Times.

The infant Prince is fourth in line to the British throne after the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose and the Duke of Gloucester.

The photo passed the British censor.

Prince William alas never inherited his Father's title, dying in a light aircraft crash. His Father was not told as he was in frail health.

HRH the Duke of Cambridge was named after him.
