  • Description

    PRINCESS IRENE'S ENGAGEMENT. AFTER TWO WEEKS OF RUMOUR AND CONFUSION HOLLAND IS RETURNING TO NORMAL. BUT SPECULATION CONTINUES ON THREE QUESTIONS: -
    FIRSTLY, THE DATE WHEN SHE WILL MARRY DON CARLOS. SECONDLY, WHERE THE MARRIAGE WILL TAKE PLACE. AND, THIRDLY WHERE THEY WILL LIVE.

    NEWSPAPER REPORTS SAY THE WEDDING WILL BE IN APRIL OR MID-MAY. UTRECHT'S CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL WAS MENTIONED AS A POSSIBLE PLACE FOR THE CEREMONY, BUT CHURCH AUTHORITIES SAY NO CONTACT HAS BEEN MADE BY THE DUTCH ROYAL HOUSEHOLD. ON THE QUESTION OF WHERE THEY WILL LIVE AFTERWARDS, PORTUGAL - POSSIBLY LISBON THE CAPITAL - HAS BEEN REPORTED.

    MEANWHILE, THE PARENTS OF DON CARLOS FLEW INTO AMSTERDAM TODAY (MONDAY) FROM LISBON, VIA PARIS, TO A WARM AND FRIENDLY WELCOME FROM THE DUTCH ROYAL FAMILY.

    PRINCESS IRENE AND HER FIANCE LED THE WELCOMING PARTY AT THE SCHIPOL AIRPORT. HER FUTURE PARENTS-IN-LAW, PRINCE XAVIER DE BOURBON PARMA AND PRINCESS MAGDALENA, CAME TO HOLLAND FOR TONIGHT'S BETROTHAL CEREMONIES. THEY ARE STAYING AT AN AMSTERDAM HOTEL.

    THIS EVENING, QUEEN JULIANA AND PRINCE BERNHARD ACCOMPANIED PRINCESS IRENE AND DON CARLOS ON A ONE-HOUR CANAL TRIP IN A LUXURY BARGE.

    CHEERING CROWDS LINED THE BANKS AS THE BARGE SAILED PAST.
