You can read about that in "Born to Rule" by Gelardi, Queen Marie's memoirs and "A Fatal Passion" by John Michael Sullivan which has more to do with Ducky than Marie, however they sisters were always close and their lives always intertwined.

From what I've read, Marie was very fond of George but never fell in love with him or even considered him as a possible match. It appears that her involvement with George occurred during her time on Malta, a couple of years before she was introduced to Ferdinand. Marie was very young, being only 17 when she became engaged, and was surprised at the behind the scenes intrigue and plotting to betroth her to a foreign crown prince. She was very naive and did not even dream that she was pregnant when she recounted feeling ill and out of sorts to a lady in waiting.

In addition, dear Russo is right that Mama Marie did not want another connection to the British royal family through any of her children. She would have made sure that if Marie showed any affection towards George, this undesired effect would have been quashed quickly.

My dear IloveCP,

You are very welcome. I love to read (not as voraciously these days) and I was a history major in college, so I enjoy biographies and historical books and seem to gravitate to books on royals. I just wish my recall was better.

No, Romania was too far away for many of the allied countries to render her assistance but the country survived the war.

Hello:

To anyone that could answer this question.... Queen Marie was pregnant in 1897, and then went to Coburg to have the baby, does anyone know any more information about it?

My dear Zebic-matakovich,

There is really not a lot of information regarding this birth. Marie was involved in a scandalous extra-marital affair at the time and when she became pregnant, many assumed she was carrying the child of her lover, Zizi Cantacuzene, a lieutenant and member of her household. According to Gelardi in Born to Rule, nothing was ever known about the child born at Coburg. If it lived, then the child could never be brought back to Romania because the public knowledge about the affair would have led many to believe it was not the Crown Prince's child. And if it died at birth, Marie never disclosed that information. Whatever happened was lost to the ages because the principal person involved, Marie, never spoke of it.

Crown Princess Maria did not have any child with that officer.

During the First World War, how difficult was the communication between Queen Marie and her sisters? Were they able to visit their mother, Duchess Marie (Maria) of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, during those war years?

I am confused... So, Queen Maria, wife of Ferdinand, had an extra marital affair, that may or may not have produced a child?
