Johan Friso - Brain-damaged Prince Friso Returns Home To The Netherlands To Continue Treatment

Dutch Prince Johan Friso has been transferred to his mother's home in the Netherlands from a London hospital 17 months after he suffered brain damage in a skiing accident in Austria.

The European royal, son of former Queen Beatrix, fell into a coma after he was buried in an avalanche in February, 2012. He had been receiving treatment at the private Wellington Hospital in the U.K. since March last year (12).

On Tuesday (09Jul13), the prince was flown back to the Netherlands, where he will continue to receive care at Beatrix's palace in The Hague.

Representatives for the royal family revealed the 44 year old's condition "remains worrying", adding in a statement, "Prince Friso will spend the summer with his family in the Huis ten Bosch palace, where a medical team... will take care of him."

Friso is the younger brother of the Netherland's new King Willem-Alexander, who was crowned leader in April (13) after the siblings' mother abdicated the throne after a 33-year rule.
