Another example of comatose royalty is Kardam, Prince of Turnovo, heir apparent to the Bulgarian throne, who has been in a persistent vegetative state since 2010.

The Prince is dead, according to his father's website. Awaiting UK obits for DDP. http://www.hellomaga...-dies-accident/

Anyway, it took Friso a year and half to buy the farm.

I'd guess that it was a matter of the time taken for the doctors to conclude, and the family to accept, that there was no hope of recovery.


That's pretty much what I think. Strangely, there's been very little public discussion on this. I appreciate his relatives' right to privacy in what is primarily a private matter, but I hope to learn more details before the archives become availabe in 50 years or so.

In other bad news for Dutch royalists: Prince Bernhard (a 42 y/o first cousin of our freshly minted king) is diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. No further details have been released, so don't trust him to cark it anytime soon. He's a strong candidate for MoX2014, mind.

The Dutch government hasn't announced funeral plans yet. He'll probably be buried in Delft next week. I don't expect it to be a repeat of Queen Juliana's funeral, but I think there'll be enough furrin royalty to gawk at.


Not quite right, I learned this morning. Prince Friso will be buried Friday, in a private ceremony in Lage Vuursche.

ETA: I read in the paper that King Harald of Norway will attend. At 76 he's apparently fit enough for travel.

regards,
Hein

Will the funeral be a quiet affair or will there be lots of photographs of ageing European royalty to get our 2014 teams into line?


I suppose the right answer is: yes.

Think the only reason I kept him off this year was the reports that he had regained "minimal consciousness" in late 2012. Thinking of the kind of top notch health care royals get, too, I thought he'd be another Sonny von Bülow.
