Cecilie to leave husband?

May 20, 1915

A dispatch to the London Daily Telegraph, and sent by cable to the New York Times reports that a Parisian newspaper, Journal de Débate, states that it has information "from an absolutely reliable source" about the marriage of the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Germany.  The paper reports that Crown Princess Cecilie "is about to break with her husband and leave Berlin for Russia."

Cecilie is said to have the "approval and support" of her mother, Grand Duchess Anastasia, sister of Grand Duke Nicholas.
