Birth Being Sought
for Prince's Bride
LONDON Ally Mail.>— Who !s go
ing to be the next queen of England?
This Is the pussle that certainly
every woman, and most of the news
paper* and mai£ folk In KngUnd are
trying to solve.
Kor the first time since the matrl
monial experiments of bluff King
Henry the Klghth, there Is an excel
lent chance of a "commoner" mount
ing the throne of Knglarid. and
hordes of match making manynas, to
say nothing of hundred* of blushinK
debutantes, who six years ago would
have admitted themselve* ruled out
of the contest, reallxe that the im
perial crown is well within their
grasp, plus a very presentable Print*
Charming, if they can manage *to
rope In the Prince of Wale*.
Among the many social upheavals
caused by the war not the least strlk
Ing is the difference It has made to
the Prince of Wales. Without a
world war. he would certainly have
been married-—according to plan, and
probably before now- to some Ocr
man, Russian or other princess lie
might have been given a choice of
two or three, but his list for selection
would have been strictly limited hut
with the wiping out of the Russian
royal family, knd the total eclipse of
the German and Austrian dynasties,
he has been able to call for a pack o4
cards for himself and claim a fresh
In fact, there are only four prin
cesses of suitable age-left In Ru rope.
They are the Italian Princesses Yo
landa and Mafalda. Marie of Ruma
nia and Margaret of Denmark. The
Italian candidate* «re Catholics, per
haps not an Insuperable obstacle, but
anyway the Italian throne is not re i
garded as too stable just now, a cofl
sideration which will welsh very
heavily when the final decision is
taken by the powers that arrange
royal marriages. The Danish I*rln
rose Margaret is a prims favorite of
Queen Mother Alexandra, but there
is no Indication that the prince has
any views In that direction, while the
exponent* of high policy cannot see
any advanUiflt to Britain In an sill
snco with poor 111ti«< bankrup Ru
Were King Albert's daughter flvr
or six years older, high policy would
douhtlesfc win and an Anglo-Rclgian
allium** be oflH IVmated, but Prin
cess Marie Is only 14, and a Prince of
Wale® cannot wait for her to grow
up. Three Knglish princesses sre
available, two Teck princesses and
Maud, younger daughter of the late
duke of Fife, but the Tecks have lit
tle wealth or prestige, while the
greater part of the Fife fortune went
with the title to the elder daughter.
Princess Alexandra, who married
Prinoe Arthur of ConnaughL
kicking itself
Hence the matchmakers have
turned to the "old nobility" of Kug
land, nnd right here the nald old no
bility must be kicking Itself badly
over the fact that it hasn't more
marriageable daughters to offer.
Taking the three highest runks, 28
dukes can only provide 14 daughters
of suitable age, 42 marquises but 15,
and 225 earls a paltry 37 eligible can
didates. Three-quarters of these
would be automatically ruled out
thru lack of fortune, personal looks
or on account of "entanglements," dl
vorces, etc., of their parents or near
relatives, for no scandal must be
raked up against the future queen of
Kngluml, nor can "dubious" relative*
be tolerated.
Advocate* of Anglo - American
frlend*hlp are rooting for an Ameri
can bride, and the prince ha* doubt
|r*„ neon plenty of* *ultable candi
date* over here, but the wish of the
man In the street undoubtedly is for
"Our Young Man" to make an Kng-
ItCh marriage. 80 far, however, no
Indication of hi* choice ha* been giv-
the prince himself, not even
the mo«t confirmed matchmaker
having detected him showing undue
partiality for any particular person.
There are no very rigid court rule*
on the subject In Kngland, the con
sent of the king being sufficient to
satisfy etlquet, and the consent of
parliament, which has to be obtained
by the h*»lr to the throne In any
event, royal or otherwise. Parlia
ment would readily consent to a non
royal bride, and It Is generally be
lieved that King George and Queen
Mary are desirous of allowing the
young prince to choose for himself.
Kqually with the Prince of Wules,
Princess Mary stands a fine chance
of being permitted to take a non
royal husband, for there are no eli
gible princes of her own age left in
Europe. The younger prince* of
England may profit similarly.
One of the main qualifications for
a non-royal Princess of Wales, or
non royaJ husband for Prince**
Mary, will be a *uhstantial bank roll,
for the British royal houwe 1* not
wealthy. •
