Alastair Windsor, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn

Born Prince Arthur of Connaught.

As Prince Alastair was only a great-grandson of a sovereign, he became from that point known as Arthur Windsor, Earl of Macduff. He succeded to the Dukedoms of Connaught and Strahtearn upon his grandfather’s death in 1942.

Son of Prince Prince Arthur of Connaught (1883-1938) and his wife Princess Alexandra, Duchess of Fife (1891-1959).
