Sophie Charlotte divorces husband

October 22, 1926

Princess Eitel Friedrich Prussia, wife of the second son of former Kaiser Wilhelm II. has been granted a divorce, reports the Associated Press.

The princess -- Duchess Sophie Charlotte of Oldenburg by birth - was granted a divorce on the "grounds of ill treatment, neglect and incompatibility of temperament."

The couple were married in 1906.  They had no children.

Both the prince and princess are expected to remarry.  The princess' future husband is said to be Harald von Hedemann, who is eight years her junior. He served in the royal dragoons, and is now a Potsdam police lieutenant.

Prince Eitel is said to be planning a marriage to the Countess Mellin,  a member of the Baltic nobility, who now lives in Potsdam.
