  • Notes 
    • Henry stuttered like his older brother Bertie, and often burst into tears or spasms of high laughter for no apparent reason. It was because of this that people thought he wasn't that bright. Because he always seemed to be ill, his parents decided not to put him into the Royal Navy like their older sons had done. Instead, they sent him to Broadstairs Prep School, a first for the Royal Family. After he was finished school, he still didn't want to join the Navy, so he opted for the Cavalry instead. He ended up loving it, and kept up the job until after the abdication. Henry often drank too much, but it was something his brothers did as well. A reaction to the strict childhood they had. In 1928, the King created Henry the Duke of Gloucester. In the summer of 1935, Henry proposed to Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott. He wasn't a romantic man, though, and according to Alice, he just mumbled it to her while they were walking. Alice's father died just three weeks before their planned huge wedding at Westminster Abbey, so the wedding ended up being a toned-down, private family affair. Bridesmaids at the wedding included the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.

      1st Duke of Gloucester
      Earl of Ulster Baron Culloden
