Franz Josef extends invitation

August 29, 1888

Emperor Franz Josef of Austria has invited the Prince of Wales "to witness the Autumn maneuvers of the Austria troops," notes the New York Times.

The Times also reports that "in view of the betrothal of Princess Wilhelmine of Holland and Prince William of Nassau the latter's father has agreed to waive his rights as heir to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg."

King George of the Hellenes arrived in Copenhagen today, where he was "cordially welcomed at the station" by Queen Louise and other members of the royal family.
