The family being called certainly seems to suggest we should expect the worst.

I don't mean to sound callous at all, but at 98 years old he has lived a long life, and lived it to the fullest. I hope he is happily surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

Exactly right...if one reads between the lines, the last bulletin from the Court was worded in a way that will make the next one announcing that HRH has passed on appear natural, expected.

But I have not given up hope yet. At this point no news is good news, imo.

The last moments of the most interesting Royal in Europe and the most loved from his people , just as his Mother.

Agree. Jean has had a very long and fulfilling life and whilst it's very sad that it seems he is nearing the end, it will certainly not be a life wasted. I hope he can live his final days in peace and comfort (unless he miraculously recovers but I sadly doubt it) surrounded by his family.
