French princess in coma after “serious” crash
A French royal is reportedly in a coma after suffering a “serious” motorcycle crash.
Princess Hermine of Clermont-Tonnerre is believed to have been injured in a road accident on Monday, June 1, as reported by French news outlet La Voix du Nord.
The 54-year-old actor and renowned Parisian jetsetter is the daughter of Charles Henri, the 11th Duke of Clermont-Tonnerre, and Anne Moranville.
Though she is not technically considered a princess, the royal author is dubbed by French press as “Princesse Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre”
She has two children, Allegra and Calixte, from her decade-long marriage to French businessman Alastair Cuddeford which ended in 2009.
French film producer and friend Thierry Klemeniuk posted about news of the accident in a post on Facebook that has since been deleted.
“Let us all pray for our princess,” he said, according to La VDN.
In a separate post, event manager Viviane Zaniroli asked others to join her in prayer.
“For our Mimine, Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre, in a coma following a motorcycle accident, we think of Allegra and Calixte her children. My darling princess you are a warrior, fight,” she said.
Ms Zaniroli is the creator of the Princesses’ Rally – a women-only car rally in which Hermine has raced multiple times.
The royal is also renowned for her passionate love of Harley Davidson motorcycles.
French celebrity magazine Gala reported she is in a “worrying” state after the crash.
