More hints for princess Elizabeth's engagement

September 2, 1945

Court circles in Athens are "discussing a possible engagement" between Britain's Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip of Greece, according to the Associated Press, which based its dispatch on reports in the Greek press.

The monarchist newspaper Hellenicon Aema, reports that Archbishop Damaskinos, Regent of Greece, "may attend to a happy solution which will connect intimately British and Greek royal houses," during his visit to London.

Prince Philip, an officer in the British Royal Navy, is the son of the late Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg.
