  • Crown Prince Frederik was in Queensland for a regatta but Princess Mary reportedly did not make the trip

NewsCorp reports that the Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and his entourage were barred from entering Jade Buddha bar at the Eagle Street Pier just before midnight on Friday.

The Crown Prince was in Brisbane for the Hamilton Island Race Week yachting regatta. "We always thought it was going to be a nightmare", he said.

"None of our policies are negotiable, if the parties want to form a government with us, it's all on the table", he said. "If they were to fly out today their last impression that they got of Australia is that "we weren't allowed into the venue because we didn't have a passport", even though they're sober, of age, polite".

Aimed at curbing alcohol and drug-fuelled violence, the new laws require venues open past midnight in Queensland's safe night precincts to scan IDs after 10:00pm.

"This is just the tip of the iceberg with the Prince", he continued. Prince Frederik was allowed in after they had Googled him, confirmed with the officers that they were actually police, and made a phone call to the liquor licensing.

"We're dealing with it all the time with normal people without ID, and if you're not someone like Prince Frederik you don't hear about it".

The Danish Crown Prince was reportedly refused entry to Jade Buddha at Brisbane's Eagle Street Pier

In a yarn that's simultaneously a complete indictment on the outrageously silly lockout laws, and also really, really, really amusing, Prince Frederik of Denmark and his associated entourage were reportedly denied entry to a pub in Queensland because the Danish royal was not carrying ID.

The attorney general, Yvette D'Ath, defended the laws, saying they had been effective.

"The Prince obviously did not take great offence to this, as he returned a short time later and was granted entry". "The fact is this has not caused a diplomatic incident as some would have you believed".

The introduction of I.D. scanners has been on the table for years, with many arguing that their introduction would create a nightmare in terms of logistics and privacy, and as Fairfax notes, Brisbane venues have reported having to turn away everyone from respected foreign business people to backpackers and tourists - often in large numbers and causing significant losses to the venue owners.

Brett Fraser from Brisbane Marketing said it was an ongoing issue.
