It’s Just Not a Good Year for Nepal’s Royal Family

Back on June 1, Crown Prince Dipendra went on a shooting spree that killed nine members of Nepal’s royal family, including the king and queen. Now the BBC reports that Princess Prekshya and 5 non-royals died in a helicopter accident. Prekshya had been married to Prince Dhirendra, who was among those killed in the June 1 massacre. Add to that the amazingly successful Maoist insurgency in Nepal, and suddenly it doesn’t look so good to be the king after all.
