Helen not leaving

June 13, 1931

The Roumanian Legation in Washington, D.C., has made public a dispatch from the official Roumanian press agency, Rodor, denying press reports "telling of an agreement by Queen Helen to leave Rumania," states the Associated Press.

The official statements refute the report and state the "alleged details" about an agreement with Queen Helen  were "absolutely untrue."

Queen Helen, the former wife of King Carol II and mother of their only son, Crown Prince Michael,  remains in Bucharest "and no steps have been taken in the sense indicated by those in the dispatches."

The official National Peasant Party newspaper, Patria, recently published that Queen Helen "was to be excluded from membership in the royal family" and would be moving abroad. 

These reports have now been officially denied.
