Prince of Wales to visit Madrid

December 10, 1926

It was announced today that the Prince of Wales will visit Madrid in January. The reports are creating "great excitement" in Spain as the prince is expected to travel incognito, and will stay at the British embassy or a local hotel. The Prince will attend several functions at the Royal palace, which will be hosted by King Alfonso XIII and Queen Ena. The couple's "two charming" daughters, Infantas Beatriz and Cristina, will be present.
It is understood by many, although there is "the greatest reserve in court circles," about a proposed marriage between the Prince of Wales and his second cousin, Infanta Beatriz.
