Prince William of Gloucester was born on this day in 1941! The eldest son of Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester and Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott, he was born 4th-in-line to the Throne, and was the elder brother of Prince Richard, the current Duke. Prince William grew up at Barnwell Manor in Northamptonshire and in Australia, where his father served as Governor-General from 1945 to 1947, before studying Wellesley House School, then at Eton, before going to Cambridge, and studying political science, American history, and business at Stanford University. Prince William joined the diplomatic service, serving in Lagos and Tokyo before returning to Britain due to the failing health of his father, and becoming a full-time member of the Royal Family. In 1972, while competing in the Goodyear International Air Trophy, his plane crashed and he passed away on site. The Duke of Cambridge is his namesake.

  5. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read, however I genuinely believed you would probably have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you can fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
