God, it's so sad! He was still young, and it was a sudden and unexpected death...
How unfair the fate is...poor Princess Isabelle...Her sister is waiting for a most wonderful moment, and she loses her beloved husband...
Poor his children...
And poor his mum...She lost a granddaughter already and now her son is taken away from her...
He went to meet his daughter Marie in heaven...

Apparently he didn't. Other members of the House of Hannover attended (his sons Ernst August and Christian, his brother Heinrich with his wife, his sister Alexandra with her husband the Prince of Leiningen and children), and even his former wife Chantal Hochuli, but not him.
