Goodness I wonder which member of the Royal Family was in Austria?

I may have misheard the news as it was on in the background,it could well have said 'buried' & not killed as I posted.

I'm not an expert on the Dutch royals, but I believe the Royal Family's annual ski holiday is in Lech, Austria.

So it seems it was Prince Friso.

According to Kronen Zeitung, he is in critical condition.

He was buried for 15 minuttes and paramedics revived him (So it was in the very last minute apparantly). He has now been brought to a hospital, where his condition is described as critical.

The RVD said that the condition of Prince Johan Friso 'stable, but he is not out of danger. " He is in the university hospital in Innsbruck.

NO!Not true,but the Prince Friso is in a critical condition.

The rest of the group,including HM and the Prince of Orange were not hurt.Allthough not an official piste,it was cleared to ski.

It's awfull enough as it is.

Kronen Zeitung reports: Arlberg: Prinz Johan Friso von Lawine verschttet - Drama um Prinzen - Stars & Society - krone.at

That the acident took place at 12.15.

No one else was involved in the accident. He is committed to the University Hospital in Innsbruck.

Niederländischer Prinz von Lawine verschüttet - vorarlberg.ORF.at

He was skiing outside the pists, thouhg we have avalanche warning 4 (highest level is 5) - so it was quite irresponsible of him to do so.
He is in the shock-room of the university-hospital in Innsbruck at the moment
