Princess Margaret Rose has had her "first date with an eligible young bachelor" since she returned from summer holidays in Scotland nearly two weeks ago, reports United Press.

The Princess, 18, and the 25-year-old Earl of Dalkeith, son, and heir to the Duke of Buccleuch,  went to the movies.

Palace "circles" have been concerned about the Princess's answer to "society gossips" who wondered what she would do with "two of her best beaux" who have been dating Sharman Douglas, the daughter of the American ambassador Lewis Douglas.

The Marquess of Blandford,  the heir to the Duke of Marlborough, and the Marquess of Milford Haven, a first cousin of the Duke of Edinburgh, were Sharman's "constant companions" while the Princess was on holiday in Scotland.
