    "He didn't fit the description for Jack who was meant to have been an ordinary Joe, not a member of the aristocracy.

    "Besides, Prince Albert was in Scotland at the time of one of the murders. OK, so he had gonorrhoea at the time but so did most men who visited prostitutes.

    "I would say it is a load of rubbish."

      And his glete was "hardly percep[tive]"?

        At the time, Eddy (Prince Albert Victor) wasn't the son of Edward VII either... though of course Bertie would become Edward VII when his mother Queen Victoria died on 22 January 1901. Picky picky picky.

            I'm not sure why it's being so readily assumed he would have caught gonorrhoea from a [female] prostitute. Given the speculation linking him to the Cleveland Street Scandal, isn't it possible he contracted it through a homosexual encounter?

              Whoever or wherever Prince AV got his gonorrhoea from (yes, being ungrammatical) a bout of STD doesn't mean he is Jack the Ripper. This tired old furphy of Prince Jack has been around the block more times than reruns of 'I love Lucy'!

              Prince Albert Victor was at the Cavalry Barracks in York when Annie Chapman was attacked and killed. He'd attended a banquet there the evening before. On the day of the Double Event he was lunching at Balmoral with his grandmother Queen Victoria and shooting with his cousin Prince Henry of Prussia.

              I think the Daily Fail should just stick to attacking Prince William for his working hours in his air ambulance as it and the other tabloids have been doing for the past week, and stop trying to find Jack the Ripper!

                Having said that, it seems this isn't really a new discovery at all. These letters have been known about at least since 2011, when one of them was quoted in an online discussion ...

                  As Janis Wilson, my co-organizer for RipperCon in Baltimore, as written in an article in the newsletter First Draft published by the Guppies, a chapter of Sisters in Crime (www.sinc-guppies.org:

                  "The problem with [the PAV] theory, though it is the most entertaining of all, is that it is demonstrably false. Thanks to the Royal Diary, one can readily see the prince was not in London at the time of some of the killings."

                  Best regards

                  Chris

                    He 'was once second in line to the throne.' Well, he was for the whole of his life. Strange way to put it.

                    And the letters claim that an STD drove him to kill. In other words, PAV wrote something like "I reckon I started bumping people off when the clap drove me bonkers."
