Prince Kardam of Bulgaria, the eldest son of the former king of Bulgaria, was seriously injured when his car crashed into a tree in Madrid highway last Friday. The 46-year-old prince was taken to the Doce de Octubre hospital in Madrid by helicopter with serious head and hand injuries. His wife, Miriam Ungria, 45, was taken to the La Paz hospital in north Madrid with lesser injuries. The prince’s father, Simeon Saxe-Coburg, was king of the Balkan state for three years until 1946 when the communist regime abolished the monarchy and exiled the royal family. He returned to Bulgaria in 2001 and was prime minister until 2005. Prince Kardman and his wife are very close to the Spanish royal family.
