On this day, July 24, 1689 ~ Birth of Prince William, Duke of Gloucester, son of Queen Anne of Great Britain, at Hampton Court Palace in Richmond, England

At the time of his birth his aunt Mary and her husband William were joint monarchs and childless.
Sadly the Duke of Gloucester suffered from poor health all his life and died aged 11 in 1700.

The date chosen was the Feast of St. James the Greater, the Patron saint of Spain.
By all accounts it poured rain on the wedding day in Winchester and the Wedding was presided over by Stephen Gardiner the Bishop of Winchester.

The Wedding ceremony was officiated by the bishop of London in the presence of the King,Queen,Duke and Duchess of York.

Prior to his wedding he was a candidate for the Polish throne but his Lutheranism was the main objection.

Its suspected that the Prince died from smallpox given his symptoms and died at Windsor Castle.
His parents were by his side when he passed he was just 11 and his remains were buried at the Royal Vault of the Henry VII Chapel in Westminster Abbey on 9 August.

William had developed hydrocephalus when he was small though, and he may well not have reached maturity as a result.
