Due to grief, Leopld will move

September 15, 1935

King Leopold III of the Belgians, accompanied by his mother, Dowager Queen Elisabeth, today left for the estate of Duchess Theodor in Bavaria for " a week's rest to regain his health after his recent tragic accident," reports the Associated Press.

Princes Axel of Denmark, sister of the late Queen Astrid, is carrying for the King's three children.   A spokesman for the king said the family will move to the castle at Laeken because Stuyvenberg Palace reminds  Leopold "too insistently of his wife, killed in an auto accident in Switzerland."
