The Duchess of Gloucester and her son are doing well

December 19, 1941

The Duchess of Gloucester and her son, who was born yesterday, "are continuing to make satisfactory progress," according to bulletins published today in the London Gazette.

According to a wireless report to the New York Times, the new Prince had been born in the Carnarvon Nursing Home in Barnet, Hertfordshire.    This was the first time a "royal prince had been born in a private nursing home."

This is the first child for the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, who were married in November 1935.   The names of the new prince have not been announced.
