  1. What an admirable life His Imperial Highness led. Your coverage showed him still at work last week. And to have lived a century and seen so much!

  3. A lot achieved in the lifetime as a Prince…. a very humble personality denoted by this article. I will say RIP to the prince and the second royal loss in a month 😦
