More than a month ago, King Leopold left for the U.S.A., accompanied by Princess de Rethy and Prince Alexander.
King Leopold went to the U.S.A. on a scientific and economic research trip. During his stay in the U.S.A., the King visited several Atomic research stations. As we know, while in the States, Prince Alexander underwent a most serious heart-operation. Prince Alexander was operated on in the "Children Hospital" of Boston. The operation, which consisted in the ablation of a section of the contracted aorta, took five hours and was conducted by the Head Surgeon of the Hospital, Dr. Robert Gross.
As it was announced in the press that this journey of the King was to be an entirely private one, very few personalities are present at the arrival of the plane at the Airport.
The King Princes Liliane and Prince Alexander are greeted by King Baudouin and Prince Albert, brother of King Baudouin.
