Exiled Greek sovereigns join Alfonso & Ena for Dinner

July 2, 1926

The exiled King George II and Queen Elisabeth of Greece had lunch today with King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain at Claridge's Hotel in London.

The New York Times reports the exiled monarchs arrived at the hotel by car with little fanfare.  They left Athens in 1923, and are have been living in London for several months. 

Scotland Yard said today that they have "found no trace of the anarchists," who were said to be following the Spanish king and queen.
