August 6, 1926

Princess Philipp of Hesse gave birth today to a son at Raccognigi, Italy. The Princess, 23, is the former Princess Mafalda of Italy, second daughter of King Victor Emmanuel and Queen Elena.
Mafalda and Prince Philipp, a nephew of the former Kaiser Wilhelm II, were married last September 23 at Racconiggi.
The name of the little prince has not yet been announced, according to the AP dispatch.
The New York Times reports that the Princess's mother, Queen Elena, was at her side when she gave birth. The King arrived "soon afterward.
Both Princess Mafalda and her infant son "are stated to be in fine health and doing well."
