I’ve already admitted I’m a lover of anything royal, so when I was able to see the palaces of the Danish Royals last October in Copenhagen I was obviously elated. I distinctly remember suppressing squeals as the tour guide told the story of how Prince Frederik and Princess Mary met.
It was something along the lines of:
He was in Australia, they met a pub, fell in love (she was not aware that he was a Prince, mind you), he proposed, she accepted, he mentioned the one tiny detail…he was the Crown Prince of Denmark and she would, of course, become a Crown Princess. She still said yes. (Lifetime movie, anyone?)
Yesterday I found these photos of them and literally mumbled to myself: “move over Kate & Wills…”
of course though, you can never have too many royal family favorites.
But I must say, Princess Mary & Prince Frederik are edging in for the tip-top spot (and their children Prince Christian Valdemar Henri John, Princess Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe, Prince Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and Princess Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda).
