  • Description

    Princess Alexandra of Kent arrived in Stockholm by air from London Mar 11 for a Swedish royal ball Mar 12 attended by 22 members of European royal families. Princesses Beatrix and Irene of Holland and Crown Princess Margaretha of Denmark also flew into Stockholm. Princess Margaretha, granddaughter of the King and queen of Sweden, greeted the Princess.

    Queen Frederika of Greece, Crown Prince Constantine and Princesses Irene and Sophia of Greece arrived for the gall the previous day. Other guests invited include Princess Astrid of Norway, the Duke of Kent, and Princess Elisabeth of Denmark.

    The ball is in honour of the King of Sweden's four granddaughters: Princess Margaretha 25, Princess Birgitta 23, Princess Desiree 21, and Princess Christina 16.

    Crown Prince Constantine of Greece 19 is the subject of a rumour linking his Princess Sophia 21 to Norwegian Crown Prince Harald, another guest at the ball.

    At last year's royal ball in Fredensborg Castle, Denmark, when these young princes and princesses were last together, there was the same speculation. But no engagements were announced.
