BULGARIA’S Prince Kardam died in a hospital in Madrid at 11.30am on Tuesday, according to a statement from the prince’s family.
The 52-year-old prince had been in a coma for seven years after a car crash near Madrid in 2008.
Kardam finally passed away due to a lung infection, caused by his inability to move. He was the oldest son of Bulgarian Tsar and former prime minister of the country, Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha is a relative of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, and is one of only three surviving heads of state from World War Two. He was with his son when he died in Madrid on Tuesday.
