Edward to visit Germany

February 16, 1901

It was reported in today's Pall Mall Gazette that King Edward VII plans to leave London on Monday for Germany to visit his older sister, the Dowager Empress Friedrich, who is said to be very ill.  The King's trip is "intended to be of an exceptionally private character."

The King, Queen Alexandra, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York, and other members of the family are now at Windsor.
