      Citation: Grenfell Record - Saturday December 11 1909: A NOTABLE WEDDING - ALBANIAN PRINCE'S BRIDE The marriage of Prince Albert Ghica to Miss Margaret Dowling, postponed from December, was celebrated very quietly on February 27th at St Mary's, Cadogan Street, in the presence of a few relatives of the bride and friends of both bride and bridegroom. A rumor was about in the morning that the Turkish Embassy had designs for the hindrance of the marriage, and a large and sympathetic crowd assembled outside the church to help in any agreeable scenes which might ensue; but all passed without incident. Prince Ghica, a handsome man of about thirty-five years of age, was supported as best man by Lieutenant Maican, of the Crown Princess of Roumania's Cavalry, A.D.C. to the Crown Prince of Roumania, who appeared in the handsome hussar uniform of his regiment, but the bridegroom wore conventional morning dress. Mr Foster led the bride up the isle, and Mrs Dowling gave away her daughter, who wore a princess gown of thick satin, embroidered in lilies in silver shades of chenille, with festoons of pearls across the front, her only ornament being an immense misshapen pearl at the throat. She wore a tulle veil thrown off the face, and held in place by a small wreath of orange blossoms, and carried a handsomely-bound prayer book instead of a bouquet. Her sole attendant was her sister, who carried a shower bouquet of white roses and lilies, with a white crepe dress, and whose hat was of unrelieved white. The church was decorated with palms and white flowers, and Father Kelly officiated. The marriage being a "mixed" one, the ceremony was very brief. By special permission there was music, the march composed for the occasion being played on the organ. The Pope sent his blessing. The service was partly in French and partly in English, the bridegroom responding in French. THE BRIDE'S FORTUNE A small reception was held by Mrs Dowling in the Winter Garden of the Hans-crescent Hotel, where a buffet luncheon was set out at a long table gay with jonquils and lilies. The health of the Prince and Princess was proposed, and three cheers were given by the guests, who expected to hear a speech from Prince Ghica when silence was asked for his reply. But his Highness only thanked his friends and proposed the health of "Les Dames." Mrs Dowling wore a mauve toque with a jetted black gown: Lady Emily Cherry brought a daughter, and others among the guests were Lady Duff Gordon, Miss Hilda Stanley, Mme. Berthon in a wonderful white panne gown inlaid with pale embroideries, General and Mrs Shaw, Mrs Charles Cobbold, Mrs Capel Cure, Mrs Chamberlain, Lady Allen, and Captain Duncombe. The bride has a handsome fortune, her father having emigrated from County Kildare to New Zealand before she was born, and there he established a secure footing and made a considerable sum of money. Prince Albert Ghica is the chosen leader of the Independence Party which seeks to free Albania from Turkish claims, and it is stated that 150,000 Albanians are ready to follow him. The Prince comes of a family which has always identified itself with the cause of liberty in Albania. His great-grandfather, Prince Gregory Ghica, of Moldo-Valachie, was beheaded by the Turks i n 1777. The newly-wedded Princess Ghica is a keen supporter of the cause, and is ready to face all eventualities. --- "Daily Mail."
