The royal houses of Greece and Roumania are to be united, doubly, in marriage. According to the latest plans, Crown Prince George of Greece will marry Princess Elizabeth of Roumania between February 10 and February 15 in Bucharest. King Constantine will be represented by Prince and Princess Nicholas.
After the ceremony, the newly married couple, who will be accompanied by Princess Marie of Roumania, will travel to Athens for the marriage in late February between Princess Helen of Greece and Crown Prince Carol of Roumania. King Ferdinand will not attend this marriage.

George and Helen are the children of King Constantine and Queen Sophie of Greece and Carol and Elizabeth are the children of King Ferdinand and Queen Marie of Roumania. The Greek and Roumanian consorts are first cousins, as both are granddaughters of Queen Victoria.
