  • Description

    PRINCESS MARGRETHE OF DENMARK LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY) ATTENDED THE BALLET IN COPENHAGEN WITH HER FIANCE, FRENCH DIPLOMAT HENRI DE MONPEZAT. THE COUPLE WILL BE MARRIED IN A COPENHAGEN CHURCH NEXT WEEK, ON JUNE 10.

    CROWDS WAITED OUTSIDE THE ROYAL THEATRE FOR THE ARRIVAL OF THE YOUNG COUPLE. THOUSANDS OF FLOWERS DECORATED THE THEATRE, WHICH WAS ILLUMINATED FOR THE OCCASION.

    THE PRINCESS' PARENTS, KING FREDERIK AND QUEEN INGRID, WERE ALSO AMONG THE AUDIENCE FOR PERFORMANCES OF POLACCA AND EXCERPTS FROM ELVERHOJ BY THE BALLET ROYAL.

    THE FORTHCOMING MARRIAGE IS A POPULAR ONE, ALTHOUGH LEFTISH YOUTH ORGANISATIONS HAVE THREATENED TO DEMONSTRATE IF THE GREEK ROYAL COUPLE COME TO THE WEDDING.

    PRINCESS MARGRETHE IS THE ELDER SISTER OF QUEEN ANNE-MARIE OF GREECE, THE WIFE OF KING CONSTANTINE.

    ONE TRADE UNION GROUP HAS WARNED THAT ATTENDANCE BY KING CONSTANTINE WOULD BE A "PROVOCATION TO (DANISH) DEMOCRACY."
