I have a feeling that news of Prince Friso's situation will be similar to the public news of Prince Kardam's. We might hear something if there's a significant change or as part of an update every...

I thought Beatrix actually looked a bit more rested today, although still very somber, of course. My admiration for her grows each day. She has been so dignified through all this, but has open in...

The speculation about living wills and "pulling the plug" is almost pointless, because no document can predict every variation of every situation, and even the wisest, most caring doctors might...

They turned it into a movie with Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons called, "Reversal of Fortune."

I'm sorry the language offended you, but I didn't mean it disrespectfully. I meant "done living."

Apart from that, you're jumping to a lot of conclusions and reading into what I said.

I thought that was one of the most shocking statements he made -- it sounded almost like he was criticizing the efforts of the team that kept trying to resuscitate Prince Friso. Very unusual to hear...

I had to make that decision with my mother a few months ago. It was heart-breaking, but it was the right thing. It's hard not to think "what if" or second-guess yourself.

I wasn't thinking about it in terms of him being in line to the throne. I'm just wondering if it would create a debate sort of like the Terry Shiavo case in Florida a few years ago. She wasn't even...

I was thinking about what the family might do about moving Prince Friso to rehab, and it made me wonder what they did about care for Queen Juliana or Prince Claus during their long declines. Did...

I was thinking yesterday this might be why Queen Beatrix is returning to the Netherlands this weekend to meet with the Prime Minister. Although removing life support would obviously be a personal,...

My point isn't whether it's right or wrong. I'm saying it's inevitable that the media will be following a story like this aggressively, whether the prince likes it or not. If he wants to spare the...

It's not a question of whether the media is right or wrong. The fact is, either way, they're going to hound the royals when they're moving around in public in the middle of one of the biggest...

There's no significant brain activity when someone is in a coma, so until he comes out of it, they really can't assess whether the accident caused brain damage.

Even if he were to come out of the...

I understand his irritation, too, and I'm sure you're right about the family wanting to be together.

I agree completely about his tendency to create situations that lead to the opposite of what...

I feel bad for the children, but the prince should have known this would happen.

If he didn't want the children to be photographed and followed, he shouldn't have brought them to a public place...

This may be a translation issue, but a medically induced coma is quite different from sedation. In a medically induced coma, doctors use drugs to slow brain metabolism in order to avoid brain damage...

I don't think that's really true. The British certainly don't all vacation or travel together. The Danes generally leave at least one person at home to act as regent. I don't think I've ever seen...

I just think it's a risk policy to allow the Crown Prince, his children, Prince Constantijn, and his children all board the same plane, especially when the Queen is already out of the country.
