Queen Marie plans to return home

March 28, 1941

Queen Marie of Yugoslavia said tonight that will return to Belgrade with her two younger sons "as soon as she is well enough," reports the Associated Press.

Marie, 41, is recovering from an operation she underwent in Switzerland about a year ago.  She is the widow of King Alexander, who was assassinated in Marseilles, in 1934, and the mother of the young king Peter II, and Princes Tomislav and Andrej.

"I have tried to bring up all three boys to act on their own judgment to work out their problems to be tough," she said.  "I know Peter is well able to look after himself and that he will be a worthy king."
