Eleven months later, the prince had recovered enough to speak in short sentences and move about in a wheelchair. His first public appearance since the accident was at the Maharajah's 58th birthday party held on the Baradari Lawns on January 13th 2006; however, the prince watched from his balcony. Princess Shivranjani Raje told reporters he is active and rehabilitating with the help of an American occupational physiotherapist. The prince can reportedly walk with some assistance.
