These archived photos of a young Crown Prince Frederik are the ultimate reminder of his colourful life

The Danish royal has come a long way.

By Jess Pullar
Ask anyone in Australia who Crown Prince Frederik is and they'll almost instantly be able to give you an accurate description.
Indeed, the future Danish King has been front and centre in the royal watching circle Down Under - not least because he married an Aussie himself, the formidable Crown Princess Mary.
But like all royals, we tend to focus on the right now as opposed to looking back on old times - especially given how much he and Mary are achieving these days as they prepare to step up as ruling Monarch.
Which brings us to here. The Danish Prince is now 52 years old, with four children and a life that we absolutely love to follow.
But his youth was just as colourful, as it turns out - and if you needed the reminder, you simply need only look at the pictures to tell the whole story.
We decided to put the Crown Prince's best photos from his younger years in one place - the perfect reminder of how far he's come, and what we have to look forward to as he grows old with his admirable wife.
Keep scrolling for a good old fashioned (but not that old fashioned) retrospective - starting with the below glorious candid, which was released in time for Frederik's 50th birthday back in May 2018.
A taste of what's to come!
