‘Merry Christmas from “Down Under” – where we celebrate Christmas in Tasmania,’ the post read.

‘Here it is neither frostbite nor just trees but summer and warm weather.’

The Hobart-born royal looked stunning in a summery dress from Australian designer Zimmermann.

Princess Mary arrived at Hobart airport alone on morning of the 22nd December and has been spending Christmas in Tasmania with her immediate and extended family. 

It is understood the family have been staying at Government House in Hobart – as they did on their previous visit – and spent Christmas Day with Mary’s family.

The visit to Australia is a private trip, which means the Princess and Prince are not in the country in an official capacity and have no public events scheduled for their stay.

A statement from the royal household read: ‘In December, the Crown Prince’s family will travel on a private Christmas holiday in Australia to celebrate the holiday with HRH the Crown Princess’s family.

‘It has been five years since the Crown Prince coupled together with their four children last visited the Crown Princess’s homeland.’

Since marrying Prince Frederik in 2004, the Princess has been on four royal visits to Australia but has visited her home country at least nine times.

Princess Mary last visited Australia last year for a ‘secret’ solo trip to celebrate her 50th birthday.
