If some people feel the need for a period of mourning, perhaps a dedicated memorial thread might be worth considering.
Yes, prayers for the next forty days especially important.

Condoleances to the family, what a sad story, similar as for Pc Friso. As for the burial, i m also surprised as king Simeon was openly acccepted in Bulgaria, he has been also Prime Minister for a while. Bulgaria counts a lot for the whole family, so I would expect him to be buried there. Strange

I'm surprised that Crown Prince Pavlos did not attend. Kardam was godfather to his son Achilleas so I assumed they were friends.

I think in a few days they will organize a more formal funeral in the Orthodox church in Madrid, which will be attended by more family and friends.

Are Kirill and Rosario divorced? As far as I remember they have indeed been living separately since 2009 but have not divorced (yet).

Some anonymous person said the spanish media that Kyril and Rosario are separated but they're not divorced and since then, they appeared together on the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden

My condolences to the family. It is a terrible tragedy.

According to the Orthodox church the funeral will be now but the so call "deep mourning" period goes on for 40 days after the funeral. In our church (and I belong to the Bulgarian Orthodox church) there are special memorial services at established times after a death - third, ninth and 40th day being the most major one.

The mother of the late Prince Kardam, Queen Margarita of Bulgaria born Doña Margarita Gómez-Acebo y Cejuela is a first cousin to the late husband of the Infanta Doña Pilar de Borbón y Borbón (sister of King Juan-Carlos). She is a widow to the late Don Luis Gómez-Acebo y Duque de Estrada, Vizconde de la Torre.

This explains the close relationship of the Spanish and Bulgarian royal families and the great hospitality always shown to King Simeon and his family.

My sincere condolences to the family. To lose a child, a sibling, a partner or a parent is the hardest personal tragedy any one of us goes through and whether that loss be through long-term illness, sudden or accidental death, the loss is equally acute. In the case of this particular prince, a "happy release", a somewhat curious phrase in English, seems appropriate in the circumstances. The Prince is released from his suffering and his loved ones are spared further pain seeing him suffer. I hope they are able to draw some comfort in their loss from the knowledge that he is now at peace.

I think seeing a loved one suffering is the worst thing in the world.

I had no idea that it's been over 5 1/2 years! What a cruel fate for him, and how sad for his loved ones.

Thank God he is free now from his failed body.
