• Dutch royals unite for Prince Friso's funeral

    The funeral of Prince Johan Friso of the Netherlands took place on Friday afternoon in the small village of Lage Vuursche near Hilversum. The 44-year-old royal had been in a coma since February 2012 following a skiing accident. The highly private funeral was attended by around 80 people including Prince Friso's widow Mabel, his two daughters Luana, 8, and Zaria, 7, his mother Beatrix and his two brothers King Willem-Alexander and Prince Constantijn.  With the adults dressed in black and children in white, the Dutch royals were unified for the sombre occasion.   CLICK ON PHOTO FOR FULL GALLERY Flags were lowered to half-mast on government buildings ahead
