Duke of Norfolk to rest

THE Duke of Norfolk, who is Premier Dukc, Earl Marshal of England, and a leading Catholic layman, has suffered a slight heart strain and has cancelled all his official engagements -up until C'hiistmas. He was to have laid the foundation stone of the new pavilion for the Bognor Regis Cricket Club on Tuesday.

Spokesman at the 62 year old Duke's Arundel Castle Home said: "He is slightly unwell, but otherwise comfortable. There is no cause for alarm."

In his rapacity as Earl Marshal of England the Duke is traditionally responsible for Coronation arrangements, and also handled the organisation of Sir Winston Churchill's state funeral in 1965.

A member of a noble family which'in the main retained its Catholic convictions since before the Reformation, the Duke is president of the Catholic Union, a non-political body which acts as watch dog on Catholic interests.
