Royal Marriage: Greece-Prussia

September 25, 1888

The marriage of Princess Sophie of Prussia to Crown Prince Constantine of Greece is expected to take place "at the end of next June," according to the Chicago Daily Tribune.

The Princess "is not expected to enter the Greek Church," but any children will be brought up in the Orthodox faith. 

King George has "privately intimated" to Kaiser Wilhelm II and Emperor Alexander III that he planned to abdicate before the marriage of his son.  He has purchased a chateau in Denmark near Schloss Fredensborg, and plans to reside there for a "portion of the year."  He also plans to reside in Germany and in Russia.
