King Alfonso and Queen Victoria leave London

July 21, 1920

King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain "concluded their unofficial visit" to London today and have departed for Paris. Their second son, Infante Jaime, will remain in London "to undergo treatment for his deafness."
There was a "large gathering of prominent persons at Victoria Station to bid the royal party adieu," including King George V and Queen Mary and other members of the royal family, and the Spanish Ambassador, according to the New York Times.
