Hermine back at Doorn

May 21, 1923

Princess Hermine, the second wife of former German Emperor Wilhelm II, returned from Germany to Doorn earlier this evening "with her children, their tutors and governesses, a retinue of German servants and much luggage," reports the New York Times.

Crown Prince Wilhelm met his stepmother at the Amersvoort station, and drove her back to Doorn, where Wilhelm II was waiting on the doorstep.  He greeted his wife with a "large bouquet" and an "affectionate embrace."
