Prince Arthur of Connaught
This page is about the son of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught. See here for the Duke.
Prince Arthur married Alexandra, Duchess of Fife in 1913. They had one son, Alistair Arthur, born the following year.
A correspondent has kindly sent me this picture of Princess Alexandra. The signed photo and a gift had been given to someone she had worked with in a hospital during the war.
Prince Arthur died four years before his father and so never inherited the title of Duke of Connaught, which passed to his son Alistair, who thus became the 2nd Duke of Connaught.
One reader has enquired whether a biography of Prince Arthur was ever written, do you know?
A family tree is here.
A collector has found an old autograph book once owned by Captain Vaughan of the White Star Line's RMS Majestic. The book contains a fascinating collection of signatures of the famous and not-so-famous. Among the signatures are Arthur and Alexandra, and it is reasonable to assume that these are Prince Arthur and his wife, the signature of Alexandra matches that of the portrait above..
Whether the third signature has any connection with them is not clear as the page contains several other signatures.
