Message of thanks from Her Majesty the Queen and Her Royal Highness Princess Mabel

Following Prince Friso's accident, we have received messages of sympathy and concern from all over the Netherlands and from beyond our borders.

We and our family are deeply touched that so many people hold Friso in their hearts and share in our anxieties. All the encouraging words, expressions of hope, moving messages, prayers and flowers are a great support to us and give us courage in a very difficult period, full of uncertainty. Your sympathy means a great deal to us.

Our family joins us in thanking most sincerely all who have, in any way, expressed their solidarity with us.
