I understand the PoO's irritation. He has shown it before on many occassions but in this case I find it more understandable. Of course he just gets the opposite reaction as intended": more camera lenses/journalists to follow the incident instead of the AP journalist leaving him alone.
Austrian news reports that the 'media centre' i.e. the garage at Hotel Post has been cleared and most journalists are on their way out to the next story. I would imagine that the Lech locals are heaving a sigh of relief that life is slowly returning to normal, with candles burning at Hotel Post for a guest who has not yet returned home.

Tonight Princess Mabel was escorted by Prince Constantijn and the much-discussed Florian Moosbrugger.

We haven't seen any pictures of the RF in Lech today, so it seems indeed that they are being left alone.

I think for the first time it has started to hit home with me how grave this situation is. The induced coma was to STABILIZE Friso's CRITICAL condition to prevent it from getting worse. Friso REMAINS critical (albeit stable and I assume his condition has not worsened), yet he has not improved and cannot therefore be brought out of the coma.
Am I to understand therefore that the hospital are waiting until Friday to make a prognosis with the hope of some improvement in the meantime? I had assumed that it was normal to wait a week in any event and that come Friday Friso would be brought out of the coma.
I'm sorry if this has already been discussed or established before or if I have been slow in understanding fully all of this, but it is important enough for me to want to understand this dreadful situation with as much clarity as possible.

I cannot say how much admiration I have for Friso's family, the fact that they have come together to support each other and to provide as much normailty to the children as possible. It shows as a wonderful example the closeness of the family and the love they have.

I have not seen a single report in any U.S. media outlet. I'm not surprised, but you'd think as a member of the Royal Family, there would be one line somewhere. If anyone has seen a mention in the U.S. let me know. Thx.
I have seen several reports in our local paper, and I'm in Colo. Nothing very detailed, however. Much better information on this board, to be honest with you!

I had always a big admiration for Prince Friso, yet I can not believe what he is living, just ask to God for a miracle for him.

Wonder whether they will transfer Friso to the Netherlands or elsewhere in case his recovery takes longer (which is imminent IMO). Otherwise Mabel might have to stay in Austria for a long time.

This has nothing to do with this thread, but I found it very interesting that the news of 'Prince' Pierre Casaraghi's latest shenanigans were in the NY city newspapers. It's really very sad that the editors would post a story about someone, while a 'real prince' well being is just thrown to the wind.

I am sure this is one of the many questions that the family is discussing with their medical advisors. In any case, the media pressure seems to be off (the Dutch media are headed home for the story about the Dutch labour party leader resigning!) so that they can have peace in which to decide next steps.

I think that's only because Grace Kelly was an American, so people are still interested.

I don't think many Americans would be able to identify Friso (I heard someone here assume he was a member of the British RF).

Probably because no one in the United States really gives a fig for the medical status of a Dutch prince, and Pierre Casaraghi is Grace Kelly's grandson, and the Monagasque Royal Family has always been of interest here, same with the British Royal Family.

That's not meant to slight Prince Friso's condition, just that you can't really be surprised that a US newspaper isn't talking about it.

I understand his irritation, too, and I'm sure you're right about the family wanting to be together.

I agree completely about his tendency to create situations that lead to the opposite of what he wants with regard to the press. It's amazing that he (or his advisers) don't save him from this.

This story has received very little news in the United States. I saw a few short sentences in the Orlando Sentinel and that was it.

I don't know that much about skiing but reading these comments I learned something about skiing.

That's why I don't rely on the US newspapers or TV news. I get most of my news from the BBC and UK Telegraph sites, as well as Google News. Plus this forum of course!

Exactly. It is only because of the Princess Grace connection that they get attention. I expect interest to die down on Monaco royals as the years go by and the connection becomes more distant.

I expect the U.S. will always have an interest in British royals partly because we were once British colonies.

Otherwise, royals get very little notice here. If I wasn't on on this board, I wouldn't have a clue who he was. He and his family are in my prayers. Very sad situation.

The only good news I've heard yesterday,yes...and Rob Ouwerkerk saying its best to dissolve the entire party...( )

To get back to topic,it was a show of loyalty to long time friend Florian Moosbrugger that he was taken to the hospital with Princess Mabel and Prince Constantijn,just to make clear where the RF stands in this,and in the ongoing police investigation into the accident.They clearly signal their loyalty and confidence in Florian Moosbrugger.Good!Before some junky newspaper takes it as a hyped up non news story again.The investigation is mandatory,a routine in all simular cases,and nothing else.

Was there really a reason to diss Pierre for not being a "real Prince"?
First Pierre is young and handsome so that might have to do with him getting mentioned; plus he is related to Grace Kelly whom is still glorified in this country.
I do think the US needs to take some time to learn that there are various European royal families in Europe, but Friso isn't exactly the person to do such a thing.
I will say that I would have thought the US media would have mentioned it at least in passing, but perhaps they only pay attention to foreign government leaders.

HM and Princess Mabel will again travel to Innsbruck this morning as they do each day.Two hours from Lech- two hours back,two hours with their son and husband.
A sad routine.

Just one question how far away is the hospital in Innsbruck from Lech? I was wondering why the family or at least Princess Mabel and the Queen simply don't stay somewhere close to the hospital so that they avoid travelling time. But maybe I am mistaken and the distance is not that far or other reasons like keeping the kids occupied or because of security reasons played a master role as well.

I truely hope that the prince will get better soon.
