The Dutch royal family is in mourning after the sudden death of Prince Friso, brother of the current monarch, King Willem Alexander.
A Royal House statement said that Friso died at the Huis ten Bosch Palace, one of the residence of the monarchy, from complications after a brain damage from the lack of oxygen after his accident.
The tragedy came as a surprise to everyone in the Royal Family. Both the king and his wife Maxima were on vacations in Greece. The Royal House has not yet reported where the remains of Friso will be buried, or when is the funeral.
