Carol welcomes Yugoslav sovereigns

January 23, 1933

King Alexander and Queen Marie of Serbia arrived today in Sinaia in the Carpathian Mountains as the guests of King Carol II, reports the Chicago Daily Tribune.

King Carol II welcomed his guests at the railroad station.  He was accompanied by his son, Crown Prince Michael, and his sister, former Queen Elizabeth of Greece.  Members of the Romanian government were also present when the Yugoslav sovereigns arrived.

A lunch at Pelesch was held in the king and queen's honor.  Tomorrow, King Alexander will visit the oil fields at Moreni, and then will travel to Curtea de Arges, where he will place a wreath on the grave of King Ferdinand.

Queen Marie is King Ferdinand's second daughter.

The couple will also pay a visit to Bucharest.
