December 10, 1920
Prince Joachim Albrecht of Prussia, cousin of the former Kaiser, is back in Berlin, reports the New York Times. He received "worldwide notoriety as the ringleader in an anti-Entente riot at the Adlon Hotel last year."
He was banned from Berlin for a year, and "having brightened his days of exile by courtship and remarriage," Prince Joachim Albrecht has returned to his Wilhelmstrasse palace.
The Princess made assurances to Herr Adlon that her husband "would behave himself." Herr Adlon lifted the ban. The Prince's "promise to behave is in a way a belated confession" for his actions last March. Earlier he had maintained that "he was nothing more than a spectator" at the riot.
Thus, the Prince and Princess, both smiling, arrived for dinner. They were shown to the Prince's favorite table. The band did not play "Deutschland uber Alles." To honor Prince Joachim Albrecht's return, the band played two of his own compositions, "Toujours Fidele," a "rather pretty slow waltz," and another waltz, "Mietta."
The Prince and Princess were greeted by many friends, and before leaving the restaurant, they expressed their thanks to Herr Adlon "for restoring hospitable relations."
