Infant princess continues to make progress

August 23, 1930

Glamis Castle
Saturday, 10:30 A.M.
"Her Royal Highness the Duchess of York and the infant Princess are both very well."

J.R. Clynes, the Home Secretary, has returned to London, and issued the following: "I am glad to be able to state that when I left Glamis last night the Duchess was making excellent progress. The doctors were very pleased with her. Our new princess is a bonny child."
The nursery at 145 Piccadilly in London, the home of the Duke and Duchess of York, will be reconstructed "to make room" for Princess Elizabeth's baby sister.
