Is the Prince of Piedmont about to wed?

September 9, 1925

In the past year or so, there have been assorted reports of the Prince of Piedmont, heir to the Italian throne, is about to become engaged,    There were reports of an engagement to one of the daughters of King Ferdinand of Roumania, and then, more recently,  the Prince was ready to announce his engagement to Princess Marie José of Belgium, the only daughter of King Albert and Queen Elisabeth,

The latest rumor has the Prince marrying Infanta Beatriz, the elder daughter of King Alfonso XIII and Queen Ena of Spain, according to a special cable to the New York Times.    During a recent visit of Italian destroyers to Santander,  Infanta Beatriz "was photographed, surrounded by the offices of the squadron, who claimed the honor of being photographed" with the future Queen.
