I personally believe in Lucien's knowledge who has often proven to possess some sort of intimate knowledge. When he says as he did that Friso's case is hopeless, then I believe him.

I don't think we'll get more official information.

The Prince of Orange was supposed to attend a concert with Princess Máxima in Paris on Saturday night.
At the last minute he cancelled this engagement and Princess Máxima went alone.
He decided to pay his brother Friso a visit at the Wellington Hospital in London.
I wonder if this means something...
Why did he decide to go to London so suddenly and cancelled his engagement at the last minute?
I find it strange, especially because he was in London earlier this week.
I don't want to speculate, but since we won't get official information on Friso's condition, we have to look at other signs.
By the way; Princess Máxima didn't have a nice evening in Paris; when she entered the Concert Hall, some members in the audience booed at her and someone shouted: "Vive la Republique!"

A worrying sign indeed, but I think if there was something really serious or the Prince's condition had worsened, the whole family would have gone to London, the Queen and Princess Maxima included. Maybe Willem-Alexander just missed his brother and wanted to see him. Sometimes you can't explain people's actions through mere logic or rationality.

I hope W-A just deciding to visit Friso is the case, but given the overall situation and that there doesn't seem to be any promising outcome, we have to see if this is significant in case anything has changed and W-A wanted to see his brother privately, thus cancelling his engagement. But we can only speculate and can't look too deeply at whatever they're doing at this time.

I think W-A canceling at the last minute is a sign for concernn with his brother's condition. Unfortunate that CP Maxima had to endure negative outbursts by herself, as I'm sure having W-A by her side would have have that easier, I suppose

We can all just speculate. Personally I doubt that the family will make any decision before the situation has not seen half a year with no changes and signs for hope.

We don't know what the family is doing, thinking and deciding apart from knowing how much they all hurt. Is something final happens, we will be informed immediately. All other information should be put in the thread about the Royal involved and we all can speculate then what the secret meaning is, if there is any at all, as we surely do, but IMHO we should not do it here. Just my opinion, of course.

But out of respect for the family, we should simply wait till they deem it right to inform the public about the situation.

You don't cancel a previous engagement on a whim, not usually. But no one knows, so it is all speculation. The French who booed are just plain rude.

Didn't Prince of Orange already have an engagement in UK earlier in the day? I have seen photos of him and Prince Michael.

As this is a thread on Prince Friso's current condition, posts discussing the booing in France have been moved to Princess Máxima's current events thread.

I think it was the day before, which makes it most odd. And, yes, Lucien, seems to know what he is saying.

I read elsewhere that the outburst in Paris was directed at an unpopular politican who happened to enter the concert hall at the same time as Maxima - an unfortunate coincidence indeed!

We don't know. No news has been released since he was moved to London.

As they say, no news is good news, or in this case, the same news.

I'm thinking that no news means no change in his current condition. I certainly don't see anything good regarding improvement being reported.

Unfortunately, the kind of hypoxic brain injury Friso has is not recoverable. Once the the brain has been denied oxygen for a prolonged period of time, it is basically dead. As he remains in a coma long term, unfortunately other things associated will begin to occur (bloodclots, decubitis, etc). I dont anticipate there being any good news forthcoming. How sad for the whole family.

German Bild-Zeitung is "reporting" that Mabel is visiting Friso every day and that she recently went back to work like before the accident.

The footballer Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, stopped breathing and his heart stopped beating for 78 minutes. He has, however, made a good recovery so far and is sitting up and able to speak.

Maybe the 2 situations are completely different, but does anyone with medical knowledge know why Muamba has apparently come through but Friso has not?
