It's in the marrige contract

April 4, 1923

Contrary to all the rumors concerning the marriage of former Kaiser Wilhelm II and his wife, Hermine, the Associated Press reported today that the real reason for Princess Hermine's trip to Germany is due to her marriage contact.  She is entitled to two months' leave per year to visit Germany "look after her estate."

According to close friends of the former Kaiser, "complete harmony prevails: at Doorn," although Hermine has curtailed many of her husband's activities in order to "remove him as much as possible from the public eye."
