A Black sea holiday for Helen and Michael

July 5, 1931

Princess Helen and her son, Crown Prince Michael of Roumania, left today for Mamaia, a Black Sea resort near Constanza, reports the Associated Press.  They will spend the rest of the summer at Mamaia.

Young Michael "was in high spirits" at the thought of a "seaside holiday."  He was said to be looking forward "to riding his Shetland pony on the sands" and playing with "inflated rubber horses on the beach."

Nine-year-old Crown Prince Michael is the only child of Princess Helen and her former husband, King  Carol II.
