Princess Clara moves to Benedictine abbey

August 31, 1907

Princess Clara of Bavaria, the abbess of the royal convent of the Dames of St. Anne at Würzberg, will shortly join the Benedictine Convent at Northwood on the Isle of Wight, reports the Los Angeles Times in an exclusive dispatch.

The princess, a "delightful and accomplished member" of the Bavarian royal family does not yet know the Mother Superior at the convent, "where she will spend the rest of her life."   The Mother Superior of the British convent is also royal, an ex-Queen, "in the world who wears the veil," who is the widow of Don Miguel, once King of Portugal.
