Princess Helen of Romania is not returning to her former husband, King Carol II, according to the Associated Press. A spokesman for the former queen in Florence, Italy, has denied the rumors of a reconciliation. The rumors have "spread wildly through diplomatic quarters in Vienna," seen as the "center of eastern European gossip.
King Carol's advisers are said to be anxious about his popularity "with his people," according to "informed sources," and they are trying "to persuade him to exile his mistress," Elena Lupescu, described as the woman "who came between him and Helen."
