No getting off the boat for Marie and Ileana

March 28, 1928

Queen Marie of Romania and her daughter, Princess Ileana arrived off the Greek port of Piraeus, near Athens, reports the New York Times.  

But the Queen and her daughter have refused to leave their boat and go ashore because the Queen has "never forgiven the Greeks" for expelling" King George II and Queen Elisabeth, her daughter," when the "Monarch was overthrown in 1923."
