Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Prussia in San Remo

January 25, 1888

Crown Prince Friedrich and Crown Princess Victoria of Prussia arrived today in San Remo, and were presented with "handsome bouquets," on the occasion of their wedding anniversary," reports the New York Times.

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess are celebrating their 30th anniversary.

The Crown Princess opened a charity bazaar in San Remo, and was again "presented with bouquets, the gift of the British and American residents of San Remo."

In the evening, the Crown Prince and Princess enjoyed a "display of fireworks" over their residence, the Villa Zirio.  A local band serenaded the imperial couple below their windows.   The Crown Prince appeared before a window, and "bowed in recognition of the compliment."

Tomorrow, the Crown Prince's second son, Prince Heinrich, will travel to Milan to meet his fiancee, Princess Irene, and her father, the Grand Duke of Hesse and by Rhine.
