4 - Saturday, Feb. 8, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts GUANTANAMO Man of Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba. Princess Irene to marry Prince Hugo BourbonParma MADRID (UPI) -Princess Irene of The Netherlands, smiling broadly and holding hands with the handsome prince she plans to marry, rushed happily today into an embrace with her father, Prince Bernhard. The reunion — an apparent happy ending to one of the great royal romantic mysteries of the decade — took place before hundreds of officials and reporters at Madrid Airport, where Bernhard had flown to pick up his daughter and take her home. Only an hour earlier, the Dutch government had confirmed that Irene, 24, whose love life and conversion to Roman Catholicism stirred a crisis in Holland, would marry Prince Hugo de Bourbon Parma, a blueblood and French air force officer nine years her senior. At the same time she announces her engagement, the princess was expected to renounce her rights as second in line of succession to the throne of the House of Orange. No member of the house has been a Catholic for more than 400 years. Dutch Premier Dr. Victor Marijnen earlier today confirmed reports from Paris and Madrid that Prince Carlos was the man in Irene's life. But he indicated any official court announcement must await the princess' return from Spain, where she had been in hiding since the announcement last week that she had converted to Roman Catholicism. It was believed she also would renounce her rights as second in line to the Dutch tlirone. Irene's father, Prince Bernhard, flew to Madrid today to pick up his daughter and bring her home. But an hour after the prince's plane landed at Madrid, he still had not emerged and there was no sign of Irene. Marijnen's announcement — lhat "the person mentioned in Madrid reports in connection with, the princess is the right person"—appeared to bring the j mystery of Irene's romance' near its end. But authoritative sources said Bernhard and Queen Juliana wanted to speak to their daughter at their castle near here before making any announcement. Confirms Reports The sources said Marijnen was irritated by the premature reports from Madrid, but decided to confirm them nevertheless. Earlier, informed sources in 1 both Madrid and Paris identified Irene's future fiance as the 33 year-old prince, a slender, handsome French air force officer known as Prince Carlos. Born in Paris April 8. 1930, he traces his royal blood back to King Philip V of Spain, and Louis XIV and Charles X ot France. He is the son of the Carlist pretender to the Spanish throne. Prince Xavier. Officials in The Hague exploded in anger when the report of her intended engagement reached here, and one government official said Irene needs the biggest public spanking ever administered." Most of the anger appeared to be caused by the fact that Irene's mother, Queen Juliana, told the Dutch nation only last Tuesday that the engagement was off. High Dutch government officials said Spanish authorities "tried to railroad the Dutch government, the Dutch people and above all the Dutch queen into a marriage announcement. This is the way to spoil the good relations between Spain and Holland."

The government sources said Irene's decision was apparently made during several days of contemplation in a Spanish Catholic retreat where she was cared for by nuns. They said she had changed her mind after telling her mother three days ago that the engagement was off. The Dutch population is evenly balanced between Catholics and Protestants. The nation was under Spanish Catholic domination before Irene's ancestor, William of Orange, secured the throne in the 17th Century amid bloody fighting. by Quincy •W/tr'-T* fa" TU t^. US.
