Former HH Rajah Muda (Crown Prince), Anthony Walter Dayrell Brooke
, 98, passed away in Wanganui, New Zealand on March 2. He is survived by his wife Gita, son James Lionel, daughter Celia and grandchildren Jason, Laurence and Sura.
Anthony was born in England in 1912. He was the only son of the Tuan Muda of Sarawak Captain Bertram Willes Dayrell Brooke.
Anthony’s uncle Sir Charles Vyner Brooke
was the third Rajah of Sarawak. Sir James Brooke became Rajah in 1841 and the Brooke family ruled Sarawak until the Japanese invasion in 1941.
As Sir Charles had no male heir, Anthony’s father, the co-ruling Tuan Muda was the heir-apparent. However, he renounced his claim in favour of his son, who was duly appointed Rajah Muda and heir-apparent in his place. - The Star online
