Alfonso visits Fiancee

January 26, 1906

King Alfonso XIII of Spain arrived today in Biarritz, France, and "took dejeuner" with his fiancee, Princess Ena of Battenberg, the Los Angeles Times reports in an exclusive dispatch. 

The guests at midday meal include Princess Ena's mother, Princess Henry of Battenberg, and her elder brother, Prince Alexander of Battenberg, and Princess Frederica of Hanover and her husband, Baron Alfons von Pawel-Rammingen. 

After lunch, the king traveled by car to Cambo, and then returned to Biarritz before heading back this evening to San Sebastian.  During his visit with Princess Ena, the king maintained "a rigorous incognito as Baron de Covadonga."
