1886 - Future Head of English Freemasons

Going through a copy of Picture Post for April 1940, I came across this old picture. The figure on the right is the Prince of Wales - the other one is the 3rd. son of Queen Victoria - the Duke of Connaught. He was 90 at the date the magazine was published.

I thought the elaborate Freemasonry regalia may be of some interest ? Mervyn

As I remember all of this, (Albert) Edward was Grand Master of the UGLE until he took the throne, when he handed over the job to Prince Arthur. Their youngest brother, Prince Leopold, 1st Duke of Albany, was also a Freemason, and was the Provincial Grand Master for Oxford, as I recall.


I have no idea whether the middle brother, Prince Alfred, 1st Duke of Edinburgh (and also reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha in Germany), was a Freemason, or not.

Anyone else know?
