Royal engagement announcement - forthcoming

June 15, 1932

The Associated Press is reporting that the marshall of the Swedish court tomorrow will announce the engagement of Hereditary Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

The Hereditary Prince, second in line to the throne, is the eldest son of Crown Prince Gustav Adolf and his late wife, the British-born Princess Margaret of Connaught.   Princess Sibylla is the elder daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

The young couple, who are second cousins, first met last year in England when both attended the wedding of Princess Sibylla's first cousin, Lady May Cambridge.
