THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) -- The Dutch royal house says that Prince Johan Friso, the youngest brother of King Willem-Alexander, has died of complications after the 2012 skiing accident that left him with grave brain damage.

In a statement, the royal house said that the 44-year-old Friso had never regained more than "minimal consciousness" after the accident, in which he was buried by an avalanche. He died Monday at the Palace Huis ten Bosch, where he was being cared for.
