Happy Birthday Princess Mary! Stunning new portrait released
Australia’s very own fairy tale princess has celebrated an important day with her family as she turns 48-years-old.
A stunning new portrait has been released to mark the Danish royal's 48th birthday on February 5.
After meeting a handsome Prince Frederik at a bar in 2000 during the Sydney Olympic Games, they immediately hit it off and were hitched in May of 2004.View this post on Instagram
The two conducted a long-distance relationship and were seen together in both Australia and Denmark, before tying the knot and Mary was no longer a commoner.
Princess Mary had to relinquish her Australian citizenship, convert to the Danish Lutheran Church and give up her rights to her children if a divorce were to occur.
Together, the pair welcomed their first child in October 2005 to a baby boy, named Prince Christian Valdemar.
Princess Isabella Henrietta followed in April 2007, and after came along by twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine in 2011.
In 2019 the royal was appointed as a rigsforstander, a monarch or regent that stands in for another while the ruler is out of the country.
She is the first person not born to the royal family to be bestowed the incredible honour since 1972.
Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine are receiving a 12-week period of schooling at the international school Lemania-Verbier in Switzerland. Princess Mary is staying with her children in Switzerland until the end of the schooling period.
