A royal engagement

December 7, 1930

By special cable to the New York Times

Prince and Princess Pierre de Orleans-Braganza announced the engagement today of their daughter, Princess Isabelle de Orleans-Braganza to Prince Henri, Count of Paris, only son of the Duke of Guise, pretender to the throne of France. 
After the death of the Duke of Montpensier, the Duke of Guise became the direct heir to throne.  He "voluntarily exiled himself" and moved to Brussels.   French law does not allow the heir to the throne to live in France.
No date has been set for the marriage
