Rumors about Prince Hendrik: not true

December 5, 1901

The Paris correspondent for The Times of London "quotes a dispatch from The Hague correspondent of The Temps," regarding the "reports of a serious quarrel" between Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and her husband, Prince Hendrik.

The Temps' correspondent states that the "malicious rumors" about the marital strife between the Queen and Prince Hendrik are the "fabrications of cheap Socialist papers" in the Netherlands.

"It is a most happy thing that there is no domestic strife.  The Prince is kind and affectionate.  The Queen loves her husband, and harmony has always prevailed."
