The Pope has refused to give a spec- i ial disi-ensation for the marriage of ex-King Michael of Rumania and Prin cess Anne of Bourbon-Parma under the terms which Michael proposed. Michael is a member of the Greek I Orthodox Church and Anne is a Roman Catholic. Michael proposed that the ceremony should be Roman Catholic, but that any children of the marriage should be brought up in the Greek Orthodox Faith. The proposal was put to the Pope by Michael's mother, the former Queen Helen, of Rumania, and Anne's mother Princess Renee, of Hourbon I'aruiah ' The Pope, under Church law, cannot grant a dispensation unless Michael agrees that any children of _ the mar riage are brought up as Roman Catho lics.
