It’s official! Our Aussie Queen Mary!

It’s official! Australia’s favourite royal export Princess Mary is expected to be crowned Queen of Denmark. And it could happen any day now.

Her Royal Highness is waiting to take over the title as the current reinging monarch Queen Margrethe, 74, prepares to pass on the baton to her graceful daughter-in-law due to ill health.

The jubilant news comes just days after the royal family were left shocked after an elderly English woman claimed to be the secret child of Frederik VII who was thought to be childless and left his throne to a cousin from whom Margrethe is descended.

And now that the allegations have been proved untrue, plans are well and truly underway to fast-track our beloved Mary and her husband Crown Prince Frederik’s coronation.

In fact, Woman’s Day hears the palace is just weeks out from making the huge announcement.

Meanwhile, Mary is said to be transitioning into the role of the Queen of Denmark quite easily and has been learning the ropes from none-other-than her mother-in-law.

Though it was earlier reported that Mary, who is mother to four adorable children, Prince Christian, 8, Princess Isabella, 7, and twins Josephine and Vincent, 3, wasn’t ready to give up her comparatively carefree life, she is now thrilled about taking on the new title.
