August 24, 1920

Queen Marie has visited former King Constantine of the Greece in Lucerne, where he is living in exile. After the visit,she returned to Zurich, where her eldest daughter, Princess Elisabeth, is staying.

King Constantine told the Associated Press that "there was nothing official to say" regarding reports of an imminent engagement between his eldest son, George, the brother of King Alexander of Greece. He added, however, that "events may happen."

In the past few years, Princess Elisabeth has been rumored to be engaged to "a number of European princes," but rumors of a marriage with Prince George have been the "most persistent."
