There is great concern in Bucharest today regarding reports from Sinaia that Queen Marie is seriously ill, reports the New York Times. Her physicians, after examining her, have decided that an operation is necessary.
In the next few days, the Queen will leave Sinaia for Blachitch Castle on the Black Sea, "where she will undergo preparation for the operation." It is not known at this time if the operation will be performed in Bucharest or abroad.
