The New York Times reports that "all the members of the staff of the United States Embassy" in Berlin attended today's "celebration of a requiem mass for the repose of the soul" of the late Princess of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst, the wife of the Imperial Chancellor.
The Princess, who died in Berlin on December 21, was the former Princess Marie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn. She is survived by her husband and six children.
According to her husband's memoirs, the Princess, who was 68, died after a "short illness."
