Friso In The Hague
Prince Friso, the younger brother of king Willem-Alexander, was transferred from Wellington Hospital in London to Huis ten Bosch Palace. This was reported by the Government Information Service (RVD) Tuesday, on behalf of the royal family. The state of the prince is unchanged and is described by the RVD as 'minimal consciousness'. Friso has arrived on Tuesday at Huis ten Bosch. His state of health is still 'worrying', however, further treatment in a hospital is not necessary anymore, writes the RVD. “Therefore, long-term possibilities for his care in the Netherlands or the United Kingdom are investigated. In the coming months, all options will be examined in consultation with experts.” The prince will spend the summer with his family at Huis ten Bosch, where he will be taken care for by a medical team. Prince Friso fell into a coma after he was hit by an avalanche on February 17, 2012, during his skiing holiday in the Austrian village of Lech. Princess Mabel says that she is grateful that the media, in the past eighteen months, have respected the privacy of her and her family. She hopes and expects that this will continue also even during the stay of her family in the Netherlands this summer.
