Princess Mary's fun in the sun

A relaxed Mary and her family welcome an Aussie friend — and the northern summer — to Denmark. Two-year-old Prince Christian tried desperately to keep his ice-cream away from the prying nose of the family collie Ziggy, during a sunny Sunday outing with his mum Princess Mary and her friends — including Amber Petty and Countess Marina of Rosenborg. Dressed in a checked shirt, shorts and floppy hat, skin-cancer-awareness crusader Mary looked much more like a down-to-earth Tasmanian girl than the Crown Princess of Denmark as she wandered about the grounds of Fredensborg Palace. No doubt Mary and Amber — who'd flown to Copenhagen for Prince Frederik's 40th birthday party last month —were kept busy reminiscing about their days together in Australia. Baby rumours
The 37-year-old Adelaide radio host, who was Mary's bridesmaid, has sparked pregnancy gossip since being spotted with a rounder-than-usual tummy — though it's not been confirmed if there's a little playmate for Princess Isabella on the way. It is likely Mary and Amber will do more catching up later this year, when the 36-year-old princess visits Tasmania in August, along with Fred, Christian and one-year-old Isabella. For the full story, see this week's Woman's Day (on sale June 16).
