Princess Patricia of Connaught to marry Crown Prince of Sweden's eldest son.

February 25, 1905

The betrothal is "official," according to the New York Times.  Princess Patricia of Connaught is going to marry Prince Oscar, eldest son of the Crown Prince of Sweden and Norway.  

The engagement has the "entire sanction and approval" of the Princess's uncle, King Edward VII.

[This is what happens when one does not check all their facts.  The bride-to-be was Patricia's older sister, Princess Margaret of Connaught, and the Crown Prince's eldest son was named Gustaf Adolf, although Oscar was one of his middle names.]
