Crown Princess Mary travels abroad without Crown Prince Frederik


Crown Princess Mary has travelled to Australia ahead of the festive season, according to Danish media.
The Hobart-born royal, 51, has been joined by her youngest children, 12-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
Danish magazine Billed Bladet reports that the royal household’s Lene Balleby confirmed Mary’s travel plans to visit family and that she will later be joined by her husband, Crown Prince Frederik, and their 16-year-old daughter, Princess Isabella.
The couple’s eldest child, Prince Christian, who turned 18 in October, will remain in Denmark for education purposes.
Future king Christian is in the final year of his upper secondary education at Ordrup Gymnasium.
Mary is the youngest of four children born to Scottish parents – John Donaldson and Henrietta, who sadly died in 1997.
She has two older sisters, Jane and Patricia, and an older brother, John. Her father remarried in 2001 to English novelist Susan Moody.
Mary met Danish Prince Frederik at the Slip Inn pub during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.
But Mary, who worked in advertising at the time, was completely unaware that the man she was talking to was a member of the Danish royal family.
“The first time we met we shook hands. I didn’t know he was the prince of Denmark. Half an hour later someone came up to me and said, ‘Do you know who these people are’?” she revealed in a 2005 interview about meeting Frederik.
