Prince Henry of Prussia’s Visit to Honolulu in 1879Posted: August 16, 2014
When King Kalakaua visited England in 1881, Crown Prince Frederick III of Germany thanked him for hosting a reception for his son two years ago:
“Your majesty … I came to salute you and … express my thanks to you, for your kind treatment of my son, Prince Henry, when he made a visit to your Kingdom. I shall present myself to Your Majesty tomorrow.”
Prince Frederick then bowed to Kalakaua.
A lady in the Hawaiian court describes her eyewitness account of Prince Henry’s reception at Aliiolani Hale (the judicial building) in a letter. Read more about it in “Impress of the Prince.”
