Crown Princess Mary of Denmark dons traditional African dress in Kenya

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark donned traditional African dress while in Kenya on Tuesday. 

Mary, 46, showed off a red and yellow wrap, along with a colourful headdress and necklace, as she visited the Kalama Conservancy in the south-west of the country.

Wearing her hair up in a high bun, she opted for a natural make-up look, later shielding her eyes with a pair of trendy sunglasses. 

The mother-of-four looked in high spirits as she was given a warm welcome by a group of local women as she arrived at the nature reserve.

Mary has made several trips to Africa in the past, including a visit to Burkina Faso in 2016.

The trip was focused on promoting the importance of sexual and reproductive health of women and girls in the region. 

Mary has had a busy month so far, joining husband Frederik, 50, in presenting the Crown Prince Couple’s Prizes 2018 on Friday. 

The couple put on a loved-up display at the event, following suggestions of marriage troubles.

Rumours began swirling after an unnamed insider told New Idea magazine: ‘There are a lot of rumours of tension between Mary and Fred’.

‘There are whispers running wild of a divorce or possible split and it’s become very stressful for the whole palace – trying to work out what’s going on.

‘The truth is that like any married couple, Fred and Mary are having a tough time of it at the moment.’
