Will Jolanda marry the Prince of Wales

May 10, 1920

The Los Angeles Times reports today that it cannot receive official confirmation of a proposed marriage between the Prince of Wales and Princess Jolanda of Italy, eldest daughter of the King and Queen. It has been admitted, in an exclusive cable to the Times from their Rome correspondent, that the King and Queen of Italy are "agreeable" to the marriage, and that the "Princess is not averse to having the handsome young Englishman as her husband," but it is also understood that "there is a decided objection to the Princess renouncing her faith."
