Umberto to marry Marie José

October 23, 1928

Italian newspapers are hinting that Crown Prince Umberto will soon become engaged to Princess Marie-José of Belgium. These hints are based on the meeting last week between the Pope and the new Belgian Cardinal van Roey.
However, officials at the royal palace in Brussels stated emphatically "that there is no truth in the report" about an engagement "being imminent, or even contemplated."
