A spokesperson from the Danish Palace has confirmed to The Weekly that Crown Princess Mary will not be coming to Sydney for the Invictus Games, in October.

Earlier this week, there had been a report that the Australia-born royal would join her husband Crown Prince Frederik for the sporting event that was created by Prince Harry back in 2014.

It has not been confirmed or denied whether Prince Frederik will make a trip to his wife's homeland in support of the Danish team.

Aussies will still get their touch with royalty, with the Duke and his wife Duchess Meghan all confirmed to come along.

It's been a rather hectic time for the beloved Danish royals.

Earlier this week, Crown Prince Frederik underwent successful back surgery.

The Danish palace confirmed that the heir-to-the-throne would take some time out from his royal commitments to fully recover.

This year, Prince Fred celebrated his 50th birthday by hosting and participating in a Royal Run.

During the event, he spoke up about his back issues.

"I have had a few back problems lately which have stopped me from going running as I would like to."

Here's hoping the father-of-four has a speedy recovery - and does make an appearance at the exciting games!
