And you thought royals were boring

Well, I'm running out of eyebrows to raise, what with all the allegations of naked royal frolicking and royal butler sex in the news today.

One of today's eyebrow-raising stories is in Spanish, which I've been trying to learn, so I thought I'd practice by translating it. Here's an abbreviated version of what (I think) it says:

"Once again Joachim of Denmark has become the subject of scandal. This time, the youngest child of the Danish queen has posed as 'Man of the Week' in the magazine Se og Hor.

"In the picture, the prince shows his body with only his most private parts covered by a towel, and what's worse, it seems this particular model has received about 200 euros to appear in the magazine.

"In the photos you can see the young man with a mischievous smile and biceps, chest and stomach that some professional wrestlers would like to have."

I hasten to say that this is only gossip, as far as I know. I have no idea if it's a true story or if he really does have such great biceps.

Helpful sites I consulted while writing this post: Babelfish and Merriam-Webster's Spanish-English Dictionary.

  1. Hola has got it wrong. Prince Joachim did not pose for anything. This picture was taken in a moment of unawareness at one of his races and it was the magazine who then used that picture when they made him the "This Week's SE og HØR Man" in one issue.

    All men who are chosen as "This Week's SE og HØR Man" get a 1,500 royalty check, it's a system of the magazine. Joachim's staff cached it and the money was donated to Det Kongelige Grøndlandsfond (The Royal Greenland Fund).
