Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is reportedly visited Australia in December 2023 to see her family ahead of Christmas!
The Australian-born Danish princess, 51, was accompanied by her youngest children, twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine (12).
While in Australia, Princess Mary, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent climbed the infamous Sydney Harbour Bridge together. The photo of the royals was uploaded to the official @bridgeclimb Instagram account before quickly being deleted, likely to give them some privacy while on their break.
According to Danish website Billedbladet, Mary’s husband, Crown Prince Frederik joined Mary in Australia along with the couple’s daughter, Princess Isabella (16). Their other son, Prince Christian (18), did not joined the rest of the family due to school commitments.
The purpose of the trip was purely personal, with Mary wanting to visit her family for the festive season.
Crown Princess Mary previously visited Australia in April 2023 for her first official engagement in the country in 10 years.
During the Sydney portion of Mary’s trip she “participate[d] in an event with Danish business representatives involved in the green transition in Australia, as well as visit[ed] a number of Danish-clad projects related to sustainable construction and transport.”
Unfortunately, Mary’s time in Australia was short, with Sydney being the only city she visited, for just a single day.
During her tour in April, she forgoed a visit to her home state of Tasmania as she attended King Charles’ coronation in London on May 6.
Mary’s last personal visit to our shores was at Christmas in 2022, when the princess returned to Australia for the first time in five years with her family in tow, allowing her four children to see the sights in the country their mother grew up in.
Prior to that, Mary visited her homeland in 2017, and was papped at a number of Sydney’s beaches and yachting around Sydney harbour.
In her 2015 visit, the family were seen extensively across Western Australia visiting a number of tourist favourites including the Margaret River Chocolate Company in Swan Valley.
