I'm currently updating my Royal family list and was wondering if we ever learned the full name and birthdate of Rufus Gilman, the grandson of the Duke and Duchess?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think we ever got to know the full name or the exact date of birth, here you can find the extra thread:

Yesterday, July 23, the Duchess of Gloucester was expected to visit Haven House Children's Hospice in Woodford Green, Essex, but decided to cancel her visit as the Duke of Gloucester is ill:

The Duke of Gloucester has been on a three-day visit to Croatia. He met senior government and armed forces personnel and visited the Croatian Conservation Institute.

In his role as Colonel-in-Chief of The Royal Anglian Regiment he visited soldiers of 3rd Battalion and of the Croatian Army on Exercise Salva Star at Slunj Training Area on September 2, 2013 - here are some pics of that visit:

The Duchess is in such good shape. And she might have dressed to match school unis. Delightful. Thanks for the photos.

What a lovely woman and surely it wasn't coincidence that she wore the same color as the school uniforms.

I really admire this couple; they're low-key but diligent in their appearances and just seem so kind and approachable. Thanks for your coverage, Iceflower.

That's what I like about them as well. No fuss. They do their duties and then go home: )

I love the Gloucester's. They quietly go about their work knowing that it wont receive a lot of press attention. They are doing it because they enjoy meeting/helping people. That makes them so lovely.
