The RVD placed the pics on behalve of the Queen who is fully aware now of the enormous impact and attention this all has here at home.She wished to be visible regardless her enormous grief,she didn't feel it beneath her to show the world she and Princess Mabel have been hurt tremendously.It's heartwarming to see the outpoor of affection towards Her,her son Friso and his family and indeed the entire RF.

Also beautifull to see how they're organised and taking turns keeping the children busy in giving them as normal a wintersport holiday as possible,especially Princesses Máxima and Laurentien are busy with that,to keep 8 children busy,and providing a warm home from home to HM in having her children and grandchildren around her.

On Mark Rutte,our PM,for being irritated on friday.He was that because he wasn't yet fully informed of the how what where bit and wished for more information before blundering away.He didn't,and therefore kept his reply short even tho that alcoholic journalist insisted on getting an answer and thus a scoop in the process,Frits Wester was told off.Good!

Also,on massive interest.Last friday evening there were over 1100 guests on this thread alone,and some 50 or so members.Within 48 hours this thread has already reached nearly 19000 views globally.

Look at all the reactions here alone Marengo,all genuine care,love & respect towards our Royal Family,we've never seen such an outpoor before here in our RF's thread.Exceptional,and exceptional circumstances.
And heartwarming to see and read.

It looks as if the prime minister was surprised by it too: he now cancels his holidays while two days ago he was reacting agitated and said that it wasn't as if the Queen or the crownprince were involved in the accident.

I am also quite surprised that the RVD is placing pictures of HM and princess Mabel arriving/leaving the hospital on their website considering the efforts they made to implement the media code.

According to Marc van der Linden Mabel's mother has arrived in Austria as well, it must be hard on her too, esp. since at a relatively young age she lost her 1st husband (Mabel's father) in an iceskating accident (let's hope that that will not be the case now).

In the mean time Prince WA and prince Constantijn took countesses Zaria and Luana skiing. I believe that Princess Laurentien & children only arrived yesterday (as the original plan was).

According to the Krone Zeitung, the ski partner of the prince was Florian Moosburger. He is the hotel manager of Hotel Moosburger where the family is staying. He must be a grandson of Irma Moosburger, who was a good friend of Queen Juliana.

The NRC reports that they expect an update from the RVD about the situation this afternoon.

About the enormeous impact which surprised some of the members.
Take my own example. Out of a little interest for Pcs Maxima, i never visit the Dutch royals thread. I knew the story abt marriage with Mabel, i remember her wedding dress but i could not distinguish Pcs Friso from his younger brother. I didnt even kmow what children they have.
Nevertheless, the new of this accident made me extremely sorry and i follow the update very anwiousely. Maybe because, out of the normal fear for a husband and father, i have a deep respect for the whole royal family.

I am impressed by the formidable organisation enacted by this family. In the face of terrible injury and uncertainty all played out in the public eye, they have managed to organise an efficient "family machine" that keeps the family ticking over, the Queen, Mabel and Friso's siblings totally supported whilst trying to maintain semblance of normalcy for the children.

As each new family member arrives I can only imagine that skiing with the children is the last thing the adults would want to be doing at this time but the needs of the family come first, as does holding it together in a totally unexpected media storm. If nothing else the RF must be heartened by the response of their countrymen in their time of trial.

Not really because as somebody else mentioned in this forum, being buried in snow is like being buried in cement. It is impossible to breath not to mention move in the event you haven't already been knocked unconscious!

Let's hope that he will survive this with as few problems as possible. Prince or not he has two little girls who need him and of course his entire family.

Stories about Royalty other than The British/Spanish/Princely Family of Monaco rarely make it onto Irish newspapers,however there was a generous sized article on Prince Friso in yesterday's daily Irish Independent.

Prince Willem-Alexander, right, and his wife Princess Maxima leave the hotel where the Dutch Royal family is staying in Lech, western Austria, Sunday, Feb. 19, 2012, two days after Dutch Queen Beatrix second son Prince Johan Friso was rushed to the intensive care unit of Innsbruck's main hospital after he was buried by an avalanche.

I guess it has a bit to do with the fact that we all delight in seeing the RFs happily in the snow because these are experiences a lot of us can share with them and have fond memories about.

And when something like that happens, a lot of people are personally touched because anybody knows there are risks in a skiing holiday as well as fun.

I've been to several skiing resorts during the years I have lived in the mountains and it's in a way sad and funny at the same time to see how enormous the shockroom section of any hospital is and how deserted these vast areas are in summer. My son once had a tobogganing accident in Oberammergau and the first thing the resuce staff did was looking at the clock and commenting: we bring him to Murnau hospital because Garmisch-Partenkirchen is already too busy at this time of the day while Murnau's turn comes later when the real bad cases are brought in from the other hospitals (Murnau is a specialised clinic for accident treatment)... As it tunred out my son was okay and could be released that day but I still remember the fear I had for his life when I saw him collapsing from his sleigh.

That's the other side to happy winter holidays and that makes poor Queen Beatrix' and her family's situation so touching. IMHO, of course.

I'm really sorry for what happened to Prince Friso! Here in Italy we're having news on newspapers and also on news broadcast in TV. My thoughts are with the Queen, Princess Mabel and the whole family.
I couldn't contain my tears yesterday while I was watching the Queen and the Princess Mabel go to the Hospital. I wish the best for Prince Friso.

After the second world war there was a large migration of Dutch people to Australia, and many here have ties to your lovely country. I for one visited in 1986. So with a Forum such as this it is a great place for people from all over the world to get to know royals from other countries. When we read about them constantly we get a feel for them and always wish for the best for each and everyone of them. Otherwise there are other forums. So no I didn't know Johan all that well. But i do remember how good looking he was as a young man in army fatigues.

The RVD,the Government Information Service,expects to give more news on the condition of Prince Friso this afternoon.

This morning most,if not all,churches throughout the country,both Roman Catholic as well as Protestant as well as all other denominations said prayers for a speedy recovery of Prince Friso and for the wellbeing of the Royal Family.

Yes, immense pain, but to me it is slightly weird that they some of them even chose to go skiing. I mean even when there is nothing that you can do to change the situation your brother is in, you can just be there by his side. Of course hospitals only allow a very small number of people to visit a patient every time, but you can again just try to be there for the wife and the children. I mean it's your brother!!

At least they are trying to distract Friso's daughters so they don't think something is seriously wrong.

Again I just hope his condition improves soon and he makes a full recovery.
