Prince Herbert E Palmer?

Herbert E Palmer, born in Sandringham, England, in 1879, was the illegitimate son of Edward VII (Prince of Wales and son of Queen Victoria) and a lady-in waiting. He was trained as an architect in Buckingham Palace and served in the Boer War as an intelligence officer. He lived in India and other countries where he acquired the tastes and ideas which were later reflected in his architecture.

When Palmer first came to America in 1912 he worked as an architect in Maryland and New York and then became associated with Frank Lloyd Wright. Disagreeing with Wright about his concepts of architecture, he moved to California where he designed the well-known Casa de las Joyas, a unique home with many unusual facets which he lived in and worked on for years. Additionally, he designed a large number of expensive homes along La Jolla Shores Drive and in other exclusive districts in what he called the Mediterranean Style. His design for the Pink House in La Jolla was described as the finest example of this type of architecture in the United States when it was featured by a national architectural magazine. His work received extensive coverage in the journals of the day and he became widely recognized for his work in California. - NRHP, 14 August 1980
