Probably because it is so rare to find a real home away from home when you are a Royal. Plus they live in palaces which have seen so much unhappiness during the past centuries, I doubt they are afraid of memories or ghosts.

Lech is like home for the family since at least 6 decades,not going there wouldn't change anything.The Family is very close-knitted,they will find comfort when they need that as they've always done.

I am surprised that they Are all returning after what happened but I guess they want to return to normal as much as possible, and lech has been part of their lives for a while. maybe the fact of returning helps them assimilate what happened and move on.

True,the good ones and bad.You always have to face reality,whereever you are,and you can always make the best of it,whereever you are.Always.It's been their home from home in the winter break for 6 decades,it is home to them.It is good,it will comfort and enable to cope.

The Moosberger Family of the Post Hotel are friends of the royal family.
Their son Florian was with Friso when the accident happened.
I can understand that they all want to be together one year later.

I think the return to Lech helps the whole family to come to terms with Friso's accident. I can totally understand that they want to return to Lech, what's more the families are friends for many years. But I too think it is really brave of Mabel to come back with the girls. Remarkable woman just like her mother-in-law.

No Sheika Deena,no pics as it is strictly private.Pics will only be taken on february 18th during the photo-call.Also,the media are kindly requested to refrain from taking pics as Princess Mabel and other Members of the RF will attend the special commemorative Holy Mass in honour of Prince Friso at the Sankt Nikolaus church in Lech this sunday february 17th as it will be exactly one year to the day since the accident.

Not easy,no,but the warmth,comfort and respect,and discretion,of the friends in- and the people of Lech plus their all being together will help surely I think.

i think going to Lech is a good decision, the place holds so many warm memories to them.
to what happened to Friso, i dont think that avoiding Lech is the right solution to end one heart's saddness, instead they face up the tragidy that happened one year ago and with that they will be able to go on without running away.

i always say to face up your troubles instead of running away. running away is no solution at all, as if Friso would wake up if they werent there.

i admire them so much and cant wait to see pictures in the photosession! the holy mass is such a great honour too.

Good point. Besides if they were to not return Lech would forever be remembered for the place where Prince Friso was injured. Next year there will be a new royal couple and if they want to change the place for winter vacation that will be a better time to do so.
