According to Spanish media, the princess left the hospital on Tuesday shortly after being informed about Kardam's critical condition.

Prince Kardam, the eldest son of Bulgaria's former Tsar and PM Simeon Saxe-Coburg, is currently being kept in an artificial coma because of the sharp pain he would felt.

The prince suffered a brain-scull trauma and his two hands are motionless, doctors from Madrid's Doce de Octubre Hospital reported.

The prince and his wife had to be airlifted from the crash scene and transported to two Madrid hospitals.

Prince Kardam was born on December 2, 1962 in Madrid and as the first-born son of Simeon Saxe-Coburg, could have claims to become the head of the Bulgarian royal family.
