  • Description

    Queen Frederika of Greece and her youngest daughter Princess Irene arrived by train in Stockholm Mar.10 for a Swedish royal ball Mar.12. Greeting them were King Gustaf Adolf VI of Sweden, Queen Louise and their daughter Princess Sibylla. Later in the day Crown Prince Constantine of Greece and his sister Princess Sophia arrived in Stockholm by air from Athens.

    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 name with Princess Desiree. Speculation continues also over a rumour linking Princess Sophia 21 to Norwegian Crown Prince Herald, another guest at the ball.

    Other guests invited include Princess Astrid of Norway; Princess Alexandra and the Duke of Kent of Britain; Crown Princess Margrethe and Princess Elisabeth of Denmark; and Princesses Beatrix and Irene of Holland.

    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.
