Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik has suffered a spinal injury while jumping on a trampoline.
The royal was at a private event inside a gymnasium when he fractured his spine, forcing him to cancel an appearance a royal reception for Danish Olympic and Paralympic athletes, the royal court said in a statement.
‘The fracture is being treated with a cervical collar that the crown prince should wear for around 12 weeks. After that the crown prince is expected to have fully recovered,’ it said.
Speaking at the event, Queen Margrethe said: ‘When you jump on a trampoline when you are almost 50, then maybe it is not so strange that it goes wrong,’
She added: ‘He's fine, he just can't take part in this event.’
