Prince Johan Friso of the Netherlands, who died on Monday following 18 months of treatment in coma, was buried in a cemetery at Stulpkerk Church in Lage Vuursche, on 16 August. He was 44.
The funeral of Prince Friso was held in a private ceremony attended by royal family members and friends, the Netherlands Government Information Service (RVD) announced on behalf of the Dutch Royal Family.
Prince Friso passed away at Palace Huis ten Bosch in The Hague on the morning of 12 August. He died of complications related to the hypoxic brain injury, which he suffered as the result of his skiing accident in Lech, Austria last year.
Prince Friso, younger brother of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, was buried in an avalanche while skiing in the Austrian Alps on 17 February, during his winter holidays with the royal family. He was rushed to Innsbruck University Hospital's intensive care unit where the doctors said that he may not come out of a coma.
“Following initial treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of the Innsbruck University Hospital, Prince Friso was transferred in early March 2012 to the Wellington hospital in London, his place of residence. In November 2012, Prince Friso begun showing signs of limited awareness ('minimal consciousness') and remained in that state since then. In early July 2013, he was transferred to Palace Huis ten Bosch in The Hague, the Netherlands,” an official statement read.
Here are the photos from Prince Friso’s funeral and some of other memorable photos from his lifetime.
