Prince Eitel Friedrich of Prussia seeks divorce

March 16, 1919

The Kleine Journal, a Berlin newspaper, reports on the forthcoming divorce between Prince and Princess Eitel Friedrich of Prussia. The Prince is the second son of the former Kaiser.
The Prince has begun proceedings against his wife, the former Duchess Sophie Charlotte of Oldenburg, and has charged that she committed adultery before the war. The prince wanted to file the action before the war began, but his father "vetoed the plan," according to the New York Times, which picked up the story from the Berlin paper.
The Prince and Princess were married in 1906, and have no children. In November 1913, the Kleine Journal reported that the couple had separated and were planning a divorce. At this time, this story was denied by the prince and princess.
