Maybe they should have paid a fine, just like Prince Joachim of Belgium did, if I remember he had the virus when he flew to Spain to see his girlfriend. They already said sorry, only hope it was honest and learned a lesson. Being Royal can sometime be harder then anyone thinks.

I dont think they're stupid, but they are rather entitled, by the sound of things. And Im sure they are not so stupid as to make the same mistake twice iwthin a few months.

What would the fine be based on? While it was irresponsible it was not illegal, so it's hard to fine people for abiding by the law but not following the government's 'advice'...

Prince Joachim is a completely different case. He broke the rules to which he committed upon entering Spain.

Yeah, and in doing so maybe a couple of people can still feed their families. Really, this is exactly the time rich folk SHOULD buy stuff like crazy, instead of sitting on their money. That won't help anyone. To the contrary.

I actually agree that people who can should be spending their money now, economies around the world need it especially in small and mid size "local" businesses.

However, as we've seen with WA and Maxima before, they sometimes forget they are not just millionaires but King and consort and that brings responsibilities with it. Its not a case of black and white especially when you are King.
