Gold Coast lifeguard saves young Danish Prince

A quick-thinking Gold Coast lifeguard has saved the heir to the Danish throne after the youngster was swept out by a rip at Mermaid Beach.

Prince Christian of Denmark, the eldest son of Princess Mary and Prince Frederick of Denmark, was plucked from the surf by lifeguard Nick Malcolm last Thursday.

It’s believed the entire family were all swimming between the flags when the ten-year-old got into trouble.

Australian-born Princess Mary and Prince Frederik thanked Mr Malcolm personally for his efforts in bringing their eldest child to safety.

The incident hasn’t deterred the Danish royal family form hitting the surf, with the family seen swimming at the beach again on Friday.

Princess Mary and Prince Frederik are enjoying a holiday with their four children here on the Gold Coast. The family has been spotted at Dreamworld and Princess Mary was also seen shopping with her two daughters, princesses Josephine and Isabella, at Marina Mirage.
