Prince Nikita of Russia arrives here

June 14, 1931

Prince Nikita of Russia arrived today from France aboard Cunard's Caronia, reports the New York Times.   The Prince is accompanied by his wife, Princess Marie, and their two sons, Prince Nikita and Prince Alexander.  The latter was named for his grandfather, Grand Duke Alexander of Russia, who met them at the pier in New York.

The prince and his family will stay in the United States for two months at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A.A. Vonsiastsky in Thompson, Connecticut.

Prince Nikita left Russia in 1919 aboard the British cruiser Marlborough.  He and his family now live in Paris, where he  works in a bank.
