We do get that formal dinner moreover royal dinners are far more boring. So people tend to either pretend to be interested or just distract themselves. That is exactly what 63-year-old Pentti Arajarvi, the husband of the Finnish president Tarja Halonen did. He was attending the state dinner thrown by the Queen of Denmark last month at Copenhagen, seated next to Denmark’s Princess Mary.
Princess Mary is the wife of the crown prince of Denmark, she was wearing a black low cut gown, tiara and an ornate necklace. And Arajarvi was decided to distract himself staring at the Princess’s chest, which he continued to do for a couple of seconds. The Princess who was looking in the other direction must have sensed the stare and thus, turned her head to catch Arajarvi in his act. In the awkward and highly inappropriate moment the Princess covered her chest with her hand while giving Arajarvi a pointed and harsh glance.
As soon as she turned her head, Arajarvi turned his head and appeared to be staring at the ceiling instead. But it was already too late, as the princess had a pretty good idea what he was staring at.
The issue might have been forgotten or at least hushed down. But, obviously Arajarvi’s sneaky and shameful act was all caught on camera and has become an internet hit.
