Belgium's Prince Joachim fined for breaking Spain's lockdown

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".

He has 15 days to pay the fine, in which case the amount will be reduced by half.

However, complications during the birth meant her labour lasted a whopping 21 hours. At one point during the labour, Ms Brooks' mother left a note on the windshield of the car telling parking wardens the keys were with the couple at the hospital, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

Ms Brooks finally gave birth at 3am the following morning, having been awake for 30 hours.

The athlete was pulled over and breathalysed in Paris' chic 17th arrondissement and returned a reading showing a level of 0.87mg/l, which would see a driver lose six points from their licence.
