When you look at Prince Friso's final resting place, it appears to be in a "new part" of the church graveyard.
I wonder if a new portion was made in haste for this, as from google earth you see most of the graveyard is full or at least nearly full.
It is of course possible this new area was make for this...

Last night at a Dutch talkhow called 'Knevel en van de Brink' the former politician Pieter Winsemius talked about his friendship with Prince Friso.
He talked about it with aproval of the Royal Family.
He said that Princess Mabel e-mailed him and several other friends from time to time in the past 1,5 years to let them know how Friso was doing.
In an e-mail after his death she wrote:
"Last year Friso skied to Heaven and now finally he has arrived there."
It was terribly moving to hear her describing such an awful situation so beautifully...

Beautiful. It must feel comforting to describe it that way.

Mabel amazes me with each passing day. Who knew what a tower of strength the princess with the bow obsession would be, and I mean that in the nicest way.

I was struck by Mabel's face at the funeral; she looked so devastated. I know you all are thinking "well of course her husband died" but I am just not use to seeing such clear sadness at a funeral of a public figure; usually they put on a game face. It's refreshing to see a family member not trying to hide what she is feeling, while at the same time unbelievably sad to see.
As for the accident was Friso in a place he should not have been?

I read he was "off piste" which means skiing in an area that has not been groomed for skiing, or "backwoods skiing." They are unmarked skiing areas.

I agree. On the other hand she seemed so strong.Her words show that his death was a long process and it was a long time of saying goodbye....

Friso was skiing next to the appoved course..

What a loss for the house of Orange - Nassau...In my mind I have the picture of Prince Friso and Beatrix in the moment he supported his mother at his father funerals, Prince Claus...they were so closed, a wonderful son, father , brother, husband and friend...what a loss. His daughters for sure will embrace the guidance of his brothers but no one will ever be able to replace Prince Friso . How will a mother continue to breathe after the loss of her dear son? How Beatrix will make it? it is a terrible tragedy indeed. I hope Princess Mabel will receive the comfort of all the other royal members.
They lost Prince Friso for the first time when the avalanche took place, they lost him for the second time yesterday when they burried him...and they will loose him again in the moment the national service ceremony will take place later this year. Is heartbreaking and unreal....that at 44 years old Prince Friso is not among his family any more....

I remember how absolutely devastated the then Queen Beatrix looked when her husband, Prince Claus died. She too wore a very wide-brimmed hat and at times it looked like Prince Friso was physically supporting her.

I think that's one of the reasons I like the DRF - they seem to be 'real.'

"A memorial ceremony will be held for Friso later in the year, the palace said". This was announced by AFP. I supposed that will have a wider character the memorial , not private...but I am not so sure about it.

It was announced that Prince Friso would be buried in a private family service that would not be televised but that there would be a televised memorial service later in the year.

This is a beautiful, but heartbreaking image. I cannot imagine the grief that this woman is going though at this moment. The expression on her face during the funeral was absolutely haunting. I'm so glad to see that there was no fear in displaying one's true emotions at such a time. Royal or not, we're all human, and therefore, we feel, and hurt. Sometimes, seeing a public figure acknowledge this by displaying his/her own grief in public is a statement that it's all right to have emotions, even if people around you expect you to be strong. I can't count how many times I've been called 'weak' for feeling sad, or crying, but I think that it's just the opposite; those who are not afraid to cry, or express their sadness are the strong ones. Mabel definitely falls in that category. I admire her strength.
