I read on the royal forums Board that he was doing much better and that he lost two fingers. All my prayers and thoughts are for Kardam's and Miriam's full recovery. The whole Bulgarian royal family is at the hospital, praying for Kardam. Miriam only broke her wrist.

Thank you for all your posts.

The vital signs and the breathing of the Prince are improving,thank goodness,after suffering a brain scull trauma and multiple fractures in both hands which have been immobilised by the doctors.He isl sedated but stable.

The Princess is stable as well

How is the news covered in Bulgaria? Is the royal family famous and popular in Bulgaria? I went to Spain and they ar often featured in Hola especially Carla and Rosario. Have people been sending flowers or calling the King's press center?


Thanks

Many comments on the Bulgarian sites about the Simeon family are not flattering at all. Of course only Bulgarians can say exactly what they think about their former King though the comments in Internet are not a highly reliable source.

It is a certain breed that posts there,one who thinks freedom of speech is all about abuse of that freedom.

Nor are most bulgarians,a corruption infested land,ousted from further hundreds of millions of Euro's subsidies by the EU because of it.

The King was very brave to enter the political arena . Bulgaria with half a century of a brutal dictaitorship will always be poisoned chalice eh?

Sadly,the condition of HRH Prince Kardam is deteriorating and the Royal Family fears for his life.
Hope and pray for a change for the better still.

Kardam was never put into an induced coma - he has been in a natural coma since the accident.  But the family will not release further information unless his condition changes.

Miriam was released from hospital. She will pay a visit to her husband when the doctors will allow her to do so. I still pray for Kardam's full recovery.

Thank you to everybody for the update

Hello,

I've just got King Simeon's biography in English by Ivalyo Shafalov. The book is full of pictures from his birth until present. What a remarkable life and achievement! The book is worth reading. I paid 30 euros for it and the postage expenses. I got the Bulgarian and English version.
