  1. How is the prince of the Netherlands? TV news said he was seriously injured, in an accident in the snows of Switzerland. No news since. You likely have sources not generally available. Can you find out?

  2. It’s good to hear the births of new royals/aristocrats in the European royal circle. Meanwhile, Prince Johan Friso of the Netherlands, the second son of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands is still in a coma at Innsbruck Hospital in Austria, latest reports said that the Prince might not regain consciousness according to his doctor but I am hoping that he could recover, so let’s pray for Prince Friso’s recovery. He was accidentally buried when an avalanche struck him while skiing at Lech, Austria and not in Switzerland.
