Prince Joachim apologises for Spanish lockdown party

A Belgian prince who contracted coronavirus after attending a party during lockdown in Spain has apologised and “will accept the consequences”.

“I deeply regret my actions,” he said in a statement on Sunday. Prince Joachim, 28, travelled from Belgium to Spain for an internship on 26 May, but went to a party two days later in the southern city of Córdoba.

Spanish reports suggest the prince, a nephew of Belgium’s King Philippe, was among 27 people at the party.

“I apologise for not respecting all quarantine measures during my trip,” his statement reads, adding: “In these difficult times I did not want to offend anyone.”

Everyone who attended the party is said to be in quarantine. Prince Joachim, the youngest son of Princess Astrid and 10th in line to the Belgian throne, is said to have mild coronavirus symptoms.
