Prince Johann Georg leaves bride in Sweden

May 26, 1961

Prince Johann Georg of Hohenzollern, who married Princess Birgitta of Sweden yesterday in a civil ceremony, flew home today to Germany without his bride.

The Associated Press reports that Prince Johann Georg "almost forgot to kiss his 24-year-old bride good-bye."  He was half way up the stairs to the plane's door, when he "turned around, dashed back and gave Princess Birgitta a hug and a kiss."

The couple will marry in a Roman Catholic wedding in Sigmaringen on May 30.  Last night, the prince and princess slept in separate suites in the royal palace.
