Duchess of Vendome ends rumor about son's marriage

March 28, 1928

The Duchess of Vendome, mother of Prince Charles Philippe, Duke de Nemours is denying "categorically" a rumor that her son has "secret wed" Miss Margaret "Peggy" Watson of Washington, D.C., according to an Associated Press dispatch.

The New York Times is reporting that Miss Watson is the daughter of Mrs. Garrett Fish Watson of 1821 Q Street, NW, in Washington, D.C.    Mrs. Watson has been "prominent in Washington society" for many years.

Friends of Miss Watson "expressed doubt today" that she married abroad.  Miss Watson has been in Europe for "sometime," and "at least three times within the past five years has been reported engaged," only to have her family deny the reports.
