Prince of Wales en route to Spain

December 12, 1926

The Prince of Wales is in Perpignan, France, where he will spend the night before crossing the border into Spain. The heir to the British throne is expected to spend the Christmas holidays in Spain, and will visit several cities including Madrid and Seville, and will also visit Gibraltar. This will be the Prince's second visit to Spain in six months, and his interest in the country may be due to a certain 17-year-old Infanta Beatriz, the elder daughter of King Alfonso XIII and Queen Ena.
