The Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende explained that this was due to discussions with Mabel Wisse Smit in October , when she had admitted that her previous statements about an alleged relationship with Klaas Bruinsma — , a known Dutch drug baron , had not been complete and accurate. This "breach of trust" was the reason the government did not seek parliamentary permission, respecting the wishes of the couple.

Considering that his elder brother King Willem-Alexander has three children, Prince Friso's exclusion from the succession was unlikely to have an effect on the monarchy in the Netherlands. On 17 February , Prince Friso was buried under an avalanche in Lech , Austria , and he was taken to a hospital in Innsbruck.
Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau
The prince's condition was described as "stable, but critical". The Dutch Royal Family issued a statement on 19 February saying "The Royal Family is very grateful and deeply touched by all expressions of support and sympathy after the ski accident of His Royal Highness Prince Friso. It was a great support for them during this difficult time. A prognosis on his health situation was expected within a few days, but this was pushed back to 24 February, a week after his accident. The RVD's comment remained the same: On 24 February, an Innsbruck medical team announced that the prince had been buried for 25 minutes, followed by a minute CPR to treat his cardiac arrest.
Wolfgang Koller stated that an MRI scan was performed a day earlier revealing little change, however other neurological tests indicated significant damage due to oxygen shortage.
It remained unclear whether the prince would ever regain full consciousness. Koller said that the Prince's family might now look for a rehabilitation institution. On 1 March , Prince Friso was transferred to the Wellington Hospital , in London where he and his wife had lived for many years. On 19 November , it was announced that the prince had started to show some signs of consciousness but it was still not certain whether he would ever wake up, and if he did, in what state.
It was understood that his coma had then evolved into a minimally conscious state. As he was no longer in need of hospital-level medical care, he stayed with his family for the summer. On 12 August , it was announced that Prince Friso had died in Huis ten Bosch due to complications from the accident.

The funeral service, at Stulpkerk church, was strictly private. Members of the public and media could not attend, nor did members of other royal families attend, with the exception of Friso's godfather, King Harald V of Norway.
A ceremony of commemoration was held on 2 November in the Oude Kerk in Delft. By a royal decree of 19 March , Prince Friso was granted the surname 'Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg', the hereditary noble predicate ' Jonkheer Jonkvrouw van Amsberg and the hereditary title 'Count of Orange-Nassau', to take effect upon his marriage. By the same decree, he was allowed to retain his title 'Prince of Orange-Nassau' as a personal and non-hereditary title and the style of 'Royal Highness'. According to the notification of this Royal Decree, any children born to the couple were to receive the surname 'Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg' and become a 'Count Countess of Orange-Nassau' and also have the noble predicate ' Jonkheer Jonkvrouw van Amsberg'.
So his children had the same titles and names as those of Prince Constantijn, and showing that they belong to the royal family descending from Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus. In social use, they are named with their comital title. Referred to from birth as Prince Johan-Friso, in , the royal court announced that he had requested that he would henceforth be called "Prince Friso".

Elise von Vieregge Wisse Smit denies ever having had any romantic involvement with Bruinsma and says she had not realised who he was at the time. But as details about their relationship emerged in the Dutch press, then prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende said it was clear the pair had held back information, and he wouldnot propose the law needed for parliament to approve Wisse Smit's entry to the royal house. Friso had spent most of his life as second in line to the throne behind Willem-Alexander, but never appeared enthusiastic.
As a child he was filmed saying, "You can hit Alex, but not so hard he gets killed, because then I'd have to be king. He went on to work for Goldman Sachs in London, eventually becoming vice-president. After his marriage, Friso served on various supervisory boards, worked for charitable organisations and helped found a low-cost airline. One of Friso's most sympathetic moments in the public eye came shortly after the death of his father, Prince Claus, when it fell to Friso to escort his mother at the funeral.
