Princess Margrethe sues furriers
Princess Margrethe of Bourbon-Parma has filed suit against Revillon Freres, a Parisian furriers, reports the Chicago Daily Tribune.
In 1941, she brought the fur coat to the furriers to store it, but the Germans, then occupying Paris, seized the coat to "send it to a freezing German general on the Russian front."
The Princess is suing for 2 million francs, the value of the coat. She said she wants the money or another fur coat to give to her daughter, Anne, as a wedding present.
Princess Anne is engaged to the exiled King Michael of Romania.
Revillon's defense is that Princess Margrethe "should be paid out of German reparations."
