What shocking news; I can't even imagine what his family must be going through at such a terrible time, especially the Queen and Princess Mabel. My best wishes that the Prince recovers with minimal damage and hopefully the excellent care he's receiving will aid in his recovery.

Thank you all for your updates.

If he survives, and we hope that he does, then it's almost a certainty the prince will have sustained an ABI to some level. Though to what degree can only be determined after any swelling on the brain has subsided which is generally why an induced coma is observed for the initial 72 or so hours.

It will be a grueling wait for many; not least of all his family.

Touching images of the Queen and Princess Mabel arriving with their arms around each other. My heart is sad for the whole family and they will stay in my thoughts and prayers in these coming days.

Thank you to Muhler and Lucien for explaining the effects caused by lack of oxygen on the brain it is most appreciated.

for the love of God, there is no war in Austria! He just wishes to be by his brother's bedside. How does that constitute any danger to his safety and is therefore unwise on the part of the Dutch government and his advisers?

All we can do to help is pray. I for one will add the Prince to my prayers.

Some people have no mercy for the plight of anyone, commoner or royal. Just 'doing their job' for some quick cash. Whitney Houston's funeral is on CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and HNL. Originally, her family wanted a 'private, invitation only' wake and funeral service. Once again, the media fought their way in. It never changes. Disgusting!

I wouldn't be so quick to criticize the media about covering Whitney Houston's funeral. The family had planned to set up a big screen outside the church so those who wanted to be at the church could watch what was going on inside.

However, that does not excuse photogs from photographing and Dutch RF.

In stead we see two human beings, a wife and a mother caring and comforting one another in the worst hours of their lives! Beatrix and Mabel are unwittingly showing the world what really matters in life!
They know that they are powerless and their true worthiness as human beings shine through!
These few glimpses from Innsbruck will be stored in my inner royal gallery for years to come!
Still hoping that Johan Friso will pull through this ordeal with his faculties intact.

Patience is what we all need now. Hoping during this time period while he is in an induced coma that the hospital give updates - even just to say that all his vital signs are good. That is blood pressure and heart rate etc. These updates should keep us all informed and quiet. And now with so many of us from so many different religions, if we all say our prayers for Johan and family he should pull through.
Perhaps on Monday they might start to reduce the medications to bring him out of the induced coma, depending on his vital signs. We may find out more by Monday evening. Hopefully.

I found the video of the Queen with Mabel's arm around her was touching, it says to me that NOTHING is more important than family, royal or not.
