A bride for the Prince of Wales

December 12, 1920

Has a bride been found for the Prince of Wales? London is now talking about Lady Margaret Scott, who is the daughter of the Duke of Buccleuch, who is said to be the current favaorite. Lady Margaret is expected to accompany her father to London for Queen Alexandra's birthday celebrations.
Finding a future queen is a national sport and an "absorbing problem in Britain, despite the Irish, labor and eastern crises confronting the English."

The Los Angeles Times's gossip columnist "Lady Mary" ponders the question of an American bride for the Prince of Wales. Such a question apparently arouses indignation, and the response from the British appears: He could NOT! And if he could he WOULDN'T!
