King George V and Queen Mary today hosted a lunch at Buckingham Palace, and the guests included Prince Paul and Princess Paul of Yugoslavia, Princess Nicholas of Greece and the Duke of Kent.
Prince Paul is one of three regents for the minor King Peter of Yugoslavia. He is married to Princess Olga of Greece, whose sister, Marina, will marry the Duke of Kent in November.
Princess Nicholas -- the former Grand Duchess Helen of Russia - is Olga and Marina's mother.
Later today, King George of the Hellenes, who is expected to regain his throne, will arrive at Buckingham Palace for tea with King George and Queen Mary.
