The Nephew of King Phillipe, Prince Joachim, has contracted Covid-19 after attending an illegal lockdown party in Spain.
It is reported that the party breached the country’s lockdown rules due to the number of attendees. Although the Royal spokesperson could not confirm the number of people, reports suggest there were around 26 guests – the current regulations in Spain are for no more than 15 people.
Prince Joachim had travelled to Spain at the end of May for an internship and had been in the country for just two days before the breach occurred. All 27 guests from the party are now quarantined in Spain.
Spain has started to ease rules and regulations after having some of the strictest measures in Europe.
Rafaela Valenzuela, the regional envoy for Cordoba where the incident took called the gathering: “completely irresponsible.”
