A Sydney man was rushed to hospital with serious facial injuries after stabbing himself in the eye with a fence post after seeing one too many photos of newborn princess Charlotte.
Relatives of the man said he had seemed nonplussed about seeing the picture 736 times via television, newspapers and social media the previous day. But on the 737th time he saw the photo “he just snapped”.
Police have warned Australians to moderate their intake of Princess Charlotte images in light of the incident.
A spokesperson for newborn Princess Charlotte Diana Something Von Windsor said the infant was, given the circumstances, “holding up rather well”.
