Dutch Prince Johan Friso, injured in an avalanche last week, is in a coma and may never regain consciousness, doctors treating him in Austria say.
Prince Friso, who had been on a skiing holiday in the Austrian resort of Lech, lay buried under snow for about 15 minutes before being rescued.
He was taken to hospital in Innsbruck after the accident, in which nobody else was hurt.
The prince, 43, is the second son of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.
