King Carol has the measles

August 18, 1933

King Carol II of Romania has caught the measles from his young son, Crown Prince Michael, the New York Times is reporting. The king apparently caught the disease from his son when the two were spending time together at Constantza. Last night, the King's temperature was 101, but it is lower today.
Crown Prince Michael is also improving.
During their quarantine together, Carol and Michael are "seeing more of each other than the royal duties will allow." After his recuperation, Crown Prince Michael, 9, will "pay a long visit" to his mother, Princess Helen, who is in Switzerland.
