Not enough hotels for royal guests

May 31, 1905

Don't bother trying to get a hotel room in Berlin as hotels are finding "their capacity for overtaxed for the accommodation of guests" at the forthcoming wedding of Crown Prince Wilhelm of Germany and Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.  Several princes have been turned away for the lack of rooms.  This is due to the "large retinues accompanying them," according to an Associated Press dispatch.

Duchess Cecilie will leave Schwerin on Saturday morning by special train. She will be accompanied by her mother, Grand Duchess Anastasia, and her brother, the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Prince and Princess Christian of Denmark.  Princess Christian is the duchess' sister, Alexandrine.
