Princess Mary’s Son Rescued From Gold Coast surf

A Gold Coast lifesaver had no idea he was saving the son of Princess Mary and heir to the throne on Thursday. Prince Christian, 10, was dragged from the surf at Mermaid Beach by lifeguard Nick Malcolm after the prince got caught in a rip in the popular Gold Coast waters.

Witnesses told how Mr Malcolm paddled out and brought the young prince back to his distressed parents, Australian-born Princess Mary, 43, and her 47-year-old husband, Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark.

Witnesses say that the royals were reportedly swimming between the flags. Luckily the scary encounter wasn’t enough to keep the royals away from the water as they returned to Mermaid Beach the following day for a swim.
