England welcomes Princess Marina
|Prince George Duke of Kent welcomes his fiancee Princess |
Marina of Greece and Denmark
Capacity crowds braved wet, foggy weather, the thickest England has had this season, to cheer the future Duchess of Kent, both at the railway station and at Buckingham Palace.
A salvo of lusty cheers greeted Marina as she arrived, and uninterrupted applause that followed for half an hour finally lef Marina and her fiance, the Duke of Kent to appear on the balcony of an upper floord for an ovation lasting three minutes.
As the King and Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of York greeted Princess Marina, the Duke of Kent fidgetted nervously, fingering his silk hat.
