Prince Joachim's wedding postponed

December 8, 1915

A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company from Amsterdam to the New York Times is stating that Kaiser Wilhelm II has postponed the wedding of his youngest son, Prince Joachim, to Princess Marie Auguste of Anhalt.

The original message came from Cassel, Prussia, and is seen as authoritative.  "The marriage was to have taken place before Christmas.  The Emperor and Empress hope that the war will be ended by February, and they therefore postponed the marriage ceremony until that time.  Should the war not have been concluded by the date set for the wedding the ceremony will be extremely simple."
