Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik was denied entry into an upmarket Brisbane bar after he wasn't recognised by staff, and suffered the nightmarish fallout of the Australian states' tough new ID laws.
"More than 1.4 million IDs have been scanned since the laws were introduced in July and more than 70 violent offenders stopped from entering licensed venues as a result", she said.
Jade Buddha co-owner Phil Hogan told ABC radio the royal encounter in Brisbane was embarrassing for all involved and particularly hard for his security staff. However, because they did not have proper ID, they were not allowed to come inside.
"The security guys were doing all the talking, but to be fair to the Prince he seemed to be a very nice guy."
They'd gotten this inside 15 minutes, at around midnight on a Friday.
After a Google search of the Prince, confirmation the officers were actually police and a phone call to liquor licensing, everyone was allowed in. We always thought it was going to be a nightmare, " Mr Hogan said.
"The prince obviously did not take great offence to this, as he returned a short time later and was granted entry".
"I said to my brother, 'If we do let him in, we're breaking the law and we're breaking the law in front of 5 or 6 coppers".
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath defended the legislation in parliament on Tuesday after coming under fire from the opposition.
