British royals have left London

October 15, 1914

Nearly all the members of the British royal family departed London earlier today for Sandringham, reports the New York Times.

The duration of their stay was not announced.  

Queen Alexandra and her daughter, Princess Victoria, left this morning on a special train, which was "shortly followed by another train" carrying King George V, Queen Mary, Princess Mary, and Princes Albert and John.

A "great crowd" gathered at the station and greeted the King and Queen "enthusiastically."
