Happy Birthday to Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, who turns 46 today! Born in Australia to parents of Scottish descent, she met Crown Prince Frederik at the Slip Inn Bar in Sydney, during the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Their engagement was announced in 2003, and the couple married in a lavish ceremony in May 2004. The Crown Prince couple have four children, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, and Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine. Crown Princess Mary supports her mother-in-law, Queen Margrethe, in official duties such as the New Year’s Levees, State Visits, and Official Visits abroad. She also supports charitable organisations, such as the Mary Foundation (named in her honour), the Cancer Society, and champions danish interests abroad. I wish HRH a very Happy Birthday and many Happy Returns!
