Death of Prince Francis. PATHETIC BEDSIDE FAREWELL j Soldier & Philanthropist, j A LOSS TO THE MOTOftlN6 WORLD. We deeply regret to announce that Prince Francis of Teck, brother of the Queen, died a few minutes after 11 on Saturday morning at a nursing home in Welbeck-street, London, where he had been lying ilL The King and Queen were with his Serene Highness at the last. Jt became evident during* the night that the Prince's condition had taken a most serious turn, and at 7-30 a.m. the following bulletin was issued:- His Serene Highness Prince Francis of Terk is now sinking. The King and Queen were at the Nursing Hc-jne from half-past four till half-past eightin the morning. Their Majesties motored back to Welbeck-street, at a quarter past ten. The official bulletin announcing the death of Prince Francis-of Teck was worded as fol- lows :— October 23rd.—His .Serene Highness Prince Francis of Teck passed away at 11 o'clock. 1 The end was quite peaceful, and there were present, besides the King and Queen, the Duchess of Teck and Prince and Princess Alexander of Teck. The Duke of TpeAr_-how-- .,ever., is ill, and unable to leave his bed. Service at the BMtsMe. Canon Edgar Sheppard, D.D., Sub-Dean of the Chape! Royal, was there at 3.30 in the morning and remained until after the King and Queen had left. When their Majesties went back to be present at the end Dr. Shep- pard also returned, and immediately after the Prince had passed away conducted a brief and simple-service while the King and Queen and j other'members of the family stood beside the j deathbed. j The- King and Queen left the nursing home j at 20 minutes past 11, fheir departure being made the occasion for a deeply impressive demonstration of sympathy on the part -of the crowd,numbering about^ two' hun- dred persons, which had assembled in the vicinity. When the grave news contained in the early tmfietins -fcweame known her Majesty displayed great fortitude, but had obviously been weeping freely. When their Majesties appeared the crowd with bared heads stood motionless and silent until the motor cardrove r Knew He Was Dying. Some few weeks ago Prince Francis under- weataelight operation in a. nursing home for the removal of an obstruction between the jaw and the nasal passage. Then he joined the King and Queen at Bahnoral, when he took cold. He however returned to town on Octo- ber 13th- and had a serious relapse. He again entered the nursing home suffering from pleurisy with effusion and an operation was immediately necessary. There is reason to believe that aympfons of septicsemia- gave an alarming torn to the illness. A distressing feature,was the patient's extreme depression. For several-days prior to death the physicians had clearly intimated that there was no hope cofrecovery.
