If that is the case, I must say it is a relief of what news has been said yesterday about the situation.
It would be nice if there was an official release what is wrong. I know its hard about the state he is in now but whether or not he has a fractured skull, is he in a coma or in an induced coma instead of getting mixed reports.

I really really hope he will be ok!!!
I am a bit irritated by the ppe "life" gallery of Friso - hopefully the media dont know more but do not report at this stage out of respect.

It's an usual practice of the agencies, when something bad or unusual happens (think of the sudden flood
of digital images after the seperation of Heidi Klum), they present their archives for the illustration in the
print media and don't want to be excelled by the competitive agencies..

Prince Friso is sedated,an artificial coma so to speak which helps to ease tensions and pain Dazzling.That is done in all simular cases.He is as comfortable as possible in this condition.My,I must admit,it chooked me up quite a bit.

I agree your Grace...it has too much of an obituary...maybe that is what some "hope for" I'm sorry to say as they are like vultures to a prey and happy with a "good story" and then cash in on that.

I will not post any of these pics because of the above.

Lucien, thank you (and others) for continuing to update us on this dreadful situation. I know that there is very little new information about Friso coming through at the moment, but nonetheless, any updates is helpful as it is awful just waiting like this for further news. I assure you that we are keeping Friso and his family and the Royal Family in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you very much for that Jacknch,very much appreciated!Thank you!!

I know it is awfull to wait,most of all in a case like this.But then remember if it is already awfull to us to wait,how awfull the wait must be for Princess Mabel and HM and the other members of the RF in this situation of their dearly beloved one?

I will post,and I'm sure others will do the same,any change or the news that there is nothing new during this uncertain and grave period.That is all we can do,and maybe light a candle for them in the meantime.

The whole family is in Lech now. Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima just had breakfast with their children. Princess Máxima took the kids to the skiing school

Thanks for posting updates even during nighttime

Yes, lets hope there will be a happy ending to his dreadful event.

They seem so sad in these pictures. Maxima hidden under her hat.
God bless them all and save Friso.

What a terrible situation. Hope the prince will recover soon to be with his family again.

I am sure the Doctors will wait until they are very sure about this grave period. Why do the Press take pictures of the family now they are suffering so much and have to wait certainly days until I hope better news .
Not easy to be Royals !

Intrusive pictures.No-one needs to see them now and they most of all can do without intrusive business at this point,and out of sheer respect alone one shouldn't even contemplate posting them.My idea in this case.

No further updates on Friso's condition except the bulletin that the Prince had a "quite night" but is,as before,fighting for his life.

I am sad there has been no positive update on the Prince's condition this morning. I wonder if the Prince did sustain a head injury and so the medical team will wait for swelling to subside before being able to make a proper prognosis, hence the wait for news.

The Royal Family will arrive any minute at the hospital. There is a lot of press. Queen Beatrix just left Lech to go to the hospital.

This morning Prince Willem-Alexander said that the family don't know anything about Friso.

Thank you for keeping us updated Lucien. Thoughts and prayers are winging from Dutch ex-pats around the world. I spent the evening with such a family and they too send their prayers for Friso's safe recovery and for the Queen, Fiso's wife and family and the people of the Netherlands, as I am sure do those on the forum.

I appreciate your stance on the vultures. It is a hard enough situation without the intrusion of the media in such an insensitive way. I am sure that WA and Maxima have enough on their hands trying to keep the children occupied and maintaining a sense of "normalcy" that is not helped by their gross insensitivity.

In a brief statement the Prince of Orange thanked the press for all the attention but stressed they rather wished to be left alone at this point.

Alexander said "they know nothing on Prince Friso" we all have to wait and see how he pulls through,that is what the Prince ment to say.

At present the RF has left Lech for Innsbruck.The University has cleared one good guarded entrance where the Royal Family is expected soon.

As a focus point on how the Dutch have been shocked by all this,the late news bulletins on Prince Friso last night got nearly 3 million viewers.

Which is understandable,I really hope that the press/reporters allows the Royal family to be left alone at this dreadful time.

This is so so sad, I pray that Prince Friso will wake up and he will be okay.
