Peter and Alexandra: no wedding during war

June 18, 1942

Princess Alexandra of Greece told the Press Association tonight that "she could not contemplate marriage" with King Peter of Yugoslavia "while such dreadful conditions prevailed in her country."

King Peter's office put out a similar statement on the King's behalf.

The announcements were made after the British press reported that King Peter and Princess Alexandra were about to announce their engagement.
