Clementine free to marry

January 22, 1910

Prince Victor Napoleon's secretary has confirmed that "death of King Leopold removed the only barrier to the marriage of Prince Victor and Princess Clementine of Belgium," according to a special cable to the New York Times.
The couple are said to be "deeply attached for several years past," but Leopold's "objections were diplomatic rather than personal." This has now changed because Clementine is no longer the daughter, "but only a cousin," of the Belgium sovereign.
