If the rumours are true, and I suspect they are, there are lots of other things Prince George did that the family is far more likely to want to keep secret than the fact he sired one illegitimate child.
My thoughts exactly.

Given what is known and/or believed about Prince George, I really doubt the revelation of an illegitimate child (if it's true) will really do anything to tarnish his or his family's reputations at this point. Of all the sons of George V, I think Prince George is the one you most expect to have had an illegitimate child (defeating David only because of the rumours that David was incapable of having children).

This "news" was hardly a revelation. The rumours have been around for many decades and written abouit quite frequently in relation to Mr Canfield. Why would anyone in 2013 care about such a story?

It seems the Duke and Duchess of Kent have rekindled their relationship after more than half a century of marriage.

Well if it's true, that is very good news. I find the Duchess an interesting individual and would love to read a biography about her - I don't think one currently exists.

I have owned the original edition for many years and enjoy rereading it from time to time. One of the captions for a photo in the book always stays with me, "The haunting beauty of the Duchess of Kent."

P.S. To Elly C. from Worcester, England: I was born in Worcester, Mass. People in the USA have a terrible time pronouncing Worcester, lol.
