Poor guy, he was so young, too young to die!
According to an Italian newspaper, Il Corriere della Sera, his parents gave their consent to an organ donation. So generous of them! Somebody else will be allowed to live thanks to this donation, so the young Prince hasn't died in vain, and to his parents he will be living through the recipients.
