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.

I suppose the right answer is: yes.
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.

Hmm, "died of complications related to the hypoxic brain injury", eh.
The idea that they´d (whoever they are) switched him off did cross my mind. His royal bro´s on holiday in Greece, I´m told, one would expect better coordination. WA has been remarkably quiet BTW.

I'm sorry to say I completely forgot about him when sorting out my teams. I had remembered by early January, because I was going to put him in my RottenDeadpool team, but annoyingly he wasn't on their lists. (Neither was Henry Cecil, although I had nominated him long before to no avail.) Oh well, there's another to strike off my 2014 longlist.

Surprised only three teams had a punt on this one.
