Ena expects a visit from the stork

April 28, 1908

In an exclusive dispatch, the Los Angeles Times writes that "the stork is again near the royal Spanish household." Queen Victoria Eugenia is due to give birth in May. This will be the second child for the former Princess Ena of Battenberg, who married King Alfonso XIII in May 1906.
The royal court is expected to go to La Granja, where the queen "will remain" until after the birth of the child. In the fall, the queen is expected to go to Cowes to visit her mother, Princess Henry of Battenberg.
