Little Prince shows waving skill

December 15, 1936

British newspapers today featured photographs of Prince Edward of Kent, "waving gayly, registering pleased curiosity, smiling and laughing." According to the Associated Press, this was the first time where photographers had received a formal invitation to "rally round a member of the royal family and snap pictures at will." The 14-month-old prince, the son of the Duke and Duchess of Kent, is apparently designated to become the royal family's "personality prince."
The Duchess of Kent is expected to give birth to a second child later this month.
