 June 7, 1961

The Marchioness of Milford Haven gave birth to a son yesterday, reports the Associated Press.  Lord Milford Haven, 42, is a first cousin of Prince Philip, and was the best man at his wedding.

Lady Milford Haven is the former model, Janet Bryce, 23.   The couple were married last November 17.  His first wife, Romaine Simpson, an American, got a "quickie Mexican divorce in 1964," but the divorce was not recognized in Britain.   She obtained a British divorce last July.

The infant will bear the courtesy title Earl of Medina.
