Albert II who?
Talking about royalty...
Andreea, did you hear about the Dutch prince Friso's skiing accident?
He went skiing on slopes away from the marked ski runs when there was an avalanche alert type 4 (= 4 out of 5, 5 being no skiing allowed at all).
He was snowed under because of an avalance for about 20 minutes.
On Dutch tv, they were a bit shocked to see how stern the Austrian tv were with the prince (talking about taking unnecessary risks despite warnings from all sides).
Now, a spokesperson tries to take away the criticism by saying that it wasn't that risky given the fact that about 4000 people (did they invent that figure?) were skiing on these unmarked ski runs so he wasn't alone + an avalanche type 4 alert is still no type 5 alert.
In our royal family; prince Laurent - who likes to complain about how tough his life is and how he has to scrape together a living given the fact that he doesn't get a lot of money - bought a new fancy yacht.
Life is tough
