Crown Princess Mary is always as elegant as ever, but her latest foray into unique content has taken things to the next level.
The Danish Royal Family recently posted a beautiful Instagram video taken inside the Crown Princess' Palace office, where she is seen speaking to the camera about a very special day on the calendars of Danes across the country.
And aside from her flawless and eloquent articulation of the Danish language, the video provides an incredible insight into her life as a royal.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued, we've been treated to a number of unique videos and images of the Danish royals working in different ways as social distancing and lockdowns have been enforced over the last few months.
One such way has been with a fascinating insight into the royals' family home at the Palace - which is filled with hidden gems we never knew existed.
On Sunday, May 3, the Princess delivered us the goods with yet another video from inside her working from home office.
This one was produced especially to mark Children's Day in Denmark, with the Princess speaking animatedly about how it was celebrated differently in the Nordic country this year.

In the caption of the video, the Palace stated: "HRH The Crown Princess sends greetings on Children's Day 2020."
It continued: "Like other events, the Children's Aid Day is this year affected by the situation with the spread of coronavirus, and the planned marking in Kongens, in Copenhagen and the City Hall Park in Aarhus have therefore been cancelled."
It ended: "Instead, Children's Aid Day 2020 will be digitally marked on the organisation's Facebook page, where it is possible during the day to follow and participate in the anniversary program." ⁣

The video clearly struck a chord with fans who were excited to get a better view of Mary's home office.
On a far wall, it's possible to make out a beautiful set of black-and-white portraits of Mary's four children when they were younger.
The images are of Prince Christian, now aged 14, Princess Isabella, 13, and nine-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine during what looks to be a special photoshoot capturing a moment in time.

Ever the fashion-forward Princess, Mary's chic high-neck back top looks perfect and cosy for her at-home working station.
With her hair worn out and loose, minimal makeup and simple jewellery, we'll just be over here taking notes.

In the comments section, a number of fans couldn't help but muse at how easily the former Tasmanian slotted into royal life in the European country.
"I still find it amazing that she learned Danish as an adult, and seems to speak it so confidently," one fan wrote.
More Danes agreed: "Yes Crown Princess Mary speaks fluent and a impressive good Danish. She speaks it very beautiful and is very gentle and lovely to listen to [sic]."
"Crown Princess Mary speaks Danish so well! I just heard the video and she sounds like a native. She speaks calmly and clearly, and is a genuine pleasure to listen to. She speaks Danish beautifully!" Another said.
And whether you speak Danish or not, we can't help but agree that she does speak with such a natural sense of grace and ease.
We can't wait to see more from her as she and Crown Prince Frederik continue to lead by example.
