A Belgian prince who contracted coronavirus after breaking lockdown rules in Spain has been fined €10,400 ($11,800).

Prince Joachim was issued with the penalty for failing to observe a 14-day quarantine period after arriving in the country.

The prince, 28, arrived in Spain for an internship on 24 May, but attended a gathering in the southern city of Córdoba two days later.

He has since apologised.

“I deeply regret my actions,” the prince said in a statement after reports about the party emerged in Spanish media late last month.

He added that he would “accept the consequences”.

Prince Joachim is a nephew of Belgium’s King Philippe and 10th in line to the throne.

More than 27,000 people have died of coronavirus in Spain since the outbreak began.
