Christmas Greetings from Down Under. The Danish royals are currently vacationing at Princess Mary’s home country in Australia. The festive postcard looks accordingly.
Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary are spending family time with their four children in Australia for the first time in five years. From there they have now posted birthday greetings on Instagram. In summer, with the sea and green plants in the background, instead of wearing a coat and hat in front of a snowy landscape.
Pictured, Frederick and Mary are sitting against a flat wall with their sons Prince Vincent and Prince Christian to their right and their daughters Princess Josephine and Princess Isabella to their left. The three gentlemen wear shirts in light shades and comfortable sneakers, and the ladies opt for floral dresses or skirts.
“Merry Christmas from Down Under – where we celebrate Christmas in Tasmania. No freezing temperatures or bare trees here, but summer and warm weather,” reads a photo of the six royals. The contribution is signed simply with “The Crown Prince Family”.
From a long distance royal relationship to a great love
It’s easy to explain why the family went to Australia for Christmas: Princess Mary is from there. The 50-year-old and her husband of four years met at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. The couple married four years later. The children are between 11 and 17 years old. It is not known how long the royals will remain at the bottom.
In 2021, the Crown family celebrate Christmas with Queen Margrethe at Marselisborg Palace in Aarhus. At the time, the palace released photos of the children and the royal decorating a Christmas tree. The Queen is spending the festive season there again this year. She celebrates Christmas Eve with her sister, Princess Benedict, and friends.
