Boy Gets Girl In 10 years the British have never completely recovered from the abduction of Edward VIII and hi.s marriage to a divorced American. And now the lovely Princess Elizabeth seems to be heading '-into a far less -sensational "liut possibly difficult betlirothal. The yoiinif man is Prince Philip, 25, of Greece. And the one compluvilinj!- factor is the continued presence of British troops in Greece. The marriage apparently has been arranged. He is an acceptable enough chap for a royal marriage. He is sixth in line for the throne of the HeUencs, now occupied by his second cousin King George. Although born on the Greek island of Corfu, the prince spent most of his younger years in England. Educated at an English preparatory. school, a Scottish public school and the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth, lie made his home with his uncle, none other than Admiral Viscount Louis Jlountbatten. He had a good war record with the British navy in the Mediterranean and the Pacific. He speaks" flawless English. The. matjih is well enough made, it seems. But 'there remain those British troops in Greece. Summed up in ibur-sy liable words by 'the New York Times, here is the problem : '"Because, of,; the, troubled situation in :'Greece it was Hhougilt thai 'the present was an inauspicious time 'for the announcement (of the betrothal) lest itwjirovidc a new reason for criticism of the government's policy of keeping British troops in Grec<:e." Britain's leftists are reported already in full cry. They did not like the return of .King -..George to Greece. They do not like British troops •. there. They tear a marriage between Elizabeth and Philip w ill commit Britian even more thoroughly to the continued sponsorship of a righlist- monarchist regime in Greece. Some sentiment is against Philip be- causo he is not British, despite his German blood mid I'Mivli'.ss Ku^lish diction. Opines columnist Tom Dri- bei% a leftist member of/lmrliiimeDl: "It might bo iliffcrenl if the poor tfirl hni! not been so carefully sheltered from contact with ordinary working class and middle-class people."
