Eden not engaged to Marina

February 25, 1951

Deputy Conservative Leader Anthony Eden has denied "a silly rumor" of his "impending engagement to the Duchess of Kent," sister-in-law of King George VI, according to United Press, which picked up the story from London's Sunday Pictorial, a tabloid.

The Duke of Kent was killed in "an air crash in 1942."  Mr. Eden's marriage ended in divorce last year, and his former wife now lives in the United States.  The Duchess of Kent is the former Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.
