  • Description

    Preceded by military brass bands - and the band of the New York sanitation department - King Baudouin of Belgium, riding up Lower Broadway May 29 to a City Hall reception, was given a typical New Yorkers "Ticker-Tape" reception.

    Waving jovially to be thousands of people thronging the sidewalks, the King was greeted at City Hall by Mayor Wagner.

    Returning to Brussels June 1 the young monarch found himself in the centre of a royal crisis. Allegations of "interference in affairs of State" by his father ex-King Leopold, and controversy over Prince Albert's forthcoming marriage in the Vatican.

    During his absence in the USA, ex-King Leopold, Princess de Rethy and their children, had moved from the royal palace of Ostend.
