Duchess of Orleans in criticial condition

December 18, 1910

The Duchess of Orleans remains in critical condition following surgery for appendicitis at her home in Wood Norton, Eversham. She "passed a comfortable night, but today her condition was considered critical."
The exiled King Manoel II of Portugal and his mother, Dowager Queen Amelie, are guests of the Duke and Duchess of Orleans. Due to the poor health of the duchess, she was unable to welcome her guests as she has been confined to bed for the past two months.
