The Netherlands' royal information service says Prince Johan Friso remains in stable but life-threatening condition five days after he was buried by an avalanche in the Austrian Alps.
The 43-year-old was rushed to the intensive care unit of Innsbruck's main hospital February 17 after he was rescued from the snow. He had been skiing off marked trails in the westernmost Lech winter sports region.
The information service says in a statement that Friso's doctors will only release information about his prognosis when they can.
Friso has received daily visits from his mother, Queen Beatrix, and his wife, Princess Mabel.
