Constantine to stay in Italy

October 1, 1922

The Havas news agency is reporting at all the members of the exiled Greek royal family, with the exception of Prince Paul, have sailed to Italy with former King Constantine.

King George II went to his father's country residence to bid farewell to his parents, King Constantine and Queen Sophie.  Constantine's departure "caused no excitement in Athens."

One Greek newspaper, according to a New York Times dispatch, states that the king and his family have decided not to travel to England, and will probably remain in Italy, "as living there is cheaper than in England."  This will, according to the report, "will have great consideration with parsimonious Constantine."

Prince Paul, the heir presumptive, will not be traveling to Italy with his family.
