Ileana sees Hochberg again

May 14, 1930

Earlier reports from Bucharest offered denials that Princess Ileana was herself responsible for telling Count Alexander von Hochberg that the engagement was offer, now acknowledge that Princess Ileana insisted on giving Hochberg "his congé by word of mouth rather than leaving it to the newspapers to announce the news."

The Princess, who remained in Cairo after her mother, Queen Marie, returned to Bucharest, requested that Count von Hochberg, "who had meanwhile arrived in Egypt," be allowed to meet with her.

This meeting has since taken place, and "it is understood that the result was a complete breaking off of all contact between the two."

Princess Ileana is expected to return to Bucharest in a few days.
