Telegram addressed by His Majesty's Minister
      at Belgrade to the Poreign Office on the
      morning of March 27th.
Military coup d'etat took place two twenty a.m. this morning 
      no casualties in Belgrade. President of the Council and a number 
      of other Ministers including Minister of War have been placed 
      under arrest. I have as yet no news regarding Prince Paul (whom 
      Minister of War told me last night was leaving Belgrade for a 
      few days rest) and his wife but there is a rumour that they have 
      left the country. Officers guarding police station demand young 
      King will be proclaimed and that General Simovitch will head 
      the government. No news as yet from Provinces.
