Windsors have lunch with Princess Maria

July 15, 1938

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor had an "impromptu luncheon" earlier today with Princess Maria of Italy, reports the Associated Press.

The princess is the youngest daughter of King Vittorio Emanuele and Queen Elena of Italy.

Princess Maria was en route to Rome when she stopped in Florence, having spent some time at San Rossore, where the Italian royal family spends their summers

The Duke and Duchess have been on a yacht cruise, and were sightseeing in Florence, when they learned Princess Maria was also in the city.  Arrangements were made for a luncheon at a local restaurant.
