Prince Joachim, a nephew of Belgium's King Philippe and 10th in line to the throne, was issued with the penalty on Wednesday for failing to observe a 14-day quarantine period after arriving in Spain, reports the BBC.

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

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

He has since apologised.

Spain had imposed a mandatory two-week quarantine for all international arrivals on May 15.
