Prince Regent refuses to receive the Rupprechts

August 29, 1903

Prince and Princess Rupprecht of Bavaria have been home for two weeks since returning from their Far East travels, but, according to a special cable to the New York Times, the Prince Regent has refused to receive them.

The Prince Regent, according to reliable sources, "bitterly opposed" the marriage between Prince Rupprecht and Duchess Marie Gabrielle in Bavaria, and is refusing to meet them.
