Officials are due on Friday to give an update about the status of Dutch Prince Johan Friso – who is in critical condition after being buried by an avalanche.
Doctors said they needed until the end of the week to be able to say if he would live or die.
Johan was trapped under the snow for 15 minutes last Friday while ski-ing off piste in the Austrian resort of Lech – where the Dutch royals traditionally take their winter break.
The 43-year-old - pictured with his wife Princess Mabel and their daughters Luana, seven, and Zaria, six - has been unconscious ever since he was airlifted to safety.
