It's simply terrible, horrible...when I think that he and the girl died in the same car crash were almost as old as me...
My condolences to his family and to the family of the girl.

Poor guy, he was so young, too young to die! :sad:
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.

I am so sad about Alexis dead. I can`t stop thinking about his parents and siblings. Sophie looked like a loving more, always proud of them. Very sad news.
