Prince Max weds Italian commoner

June 3, 1931

Prince Max of Hohenlohe-Langenburg was thirty-five minutes late today for his wedding at a London registry office, according to a wireless to the New York Times.  The Prince, a cousin of  the Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, who is married to a granddaughter of Queen Victoria,  was waiting at his hotel for his a friend, "who had been delayed in a traffic jam." 

The bride is an Italian commoner, Louise Pasquero.    The Prince's best man was Count Frederic Bon de St. Hilaire, chamberlain to Prince Luis of Orleans-Borbon, who married the princess de Brogilie last year in the same Registry Office.

After the civil ceremony, the newlyweds left for their honeymoon in Paris and the Riviera.
