'Troth denied

January 28, 1935

The secretariat for the Swedish cabinet today denied rumors about an engagement between Princess Ingrid of Sweden and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark. An official denial was also made by King Christian X of Denmark when he was made aware of the press reports regarding a forthcoming engagement.
Princess Ingrid, who is the only daughter of the Swedish Crown Prince, has been the subject of marital rumors for several years now. The Crown Prince of Denmark has figured prominently in the more recent rumors, but in the past few years, the Princess has also been linked with Britain's Prince George and his elder brother, the Prince of Wales.
More than a decade ago, Crown Prince Frederik was engaged to Princess Olga of Greece. The engagement ended after only a few months, and she later married Prince Paul of Yugoslavia. Prince George, now the Duke of Kent, married Olga's youngest sister, Princess Marina, last November.
