The New York Times is reporting that the former German Kaiser, Wilhelm II, who abdicated in November, has purchased an estate and house of Doorn in the village of Doorn, near Utrecht. The estate was purchased from the Baroness de Beaufort. Since leaving Germany, Wilhelm II has been living in Amerongen.
It is also being reported that Crown Princess Cecilie is expected to arrive in Holland "within a few days," and will stay at the small house at Wieringen with her husband, the former Crown Prince. She will "occupy the small room, meagrely furnished with a bed and washstand." The room is now being occupied by Major von Mulder, who serves as the Crown Prince's adjuntant. He will now have to seek "quarters in the village." The Crown Prince's children, who will also be visiting Wierengen, will be staying with the Burgomeister.
