  • Description

    Coinciding with the feast of Saint Spyridion, King Paul and Queen Frederika, accompanied by the Royal Family and the three Swedish Princesses, distributed dowry booklets to 3 20 young Corfu girls, August 13.

    Of destitute parents, the girls, when reaching 18 years of age, will be entitled to a sum of 25,000 drachmaes (approx GBP210) with which they will be able to pay a dowry and get married.

    The Greek Royal family and their Swedish guests are holidaying on Corfu. It is strongly rumoured that the engagement of Greek Crown Prince Constantine and 21-year old Swedish Princess Desiree will shortly be announced. The Crown Prince's personal aircraft flew to Sweden specially to collect Princess Desiree, her sisters, Princesses Margaretha and bring them to Corfu.
