Princess Mary of Denmark joins children as they celebrate charity run

She recently returned from a solo visit to the States, where she had a busy schedule of engagements. 

But Princess Mary of Denmark showed no sign of jetlag as she completed The Royal Run in aid of her husband Prince Frederik’s 50th birthday. 

The 46-year-old royal looked in good spirits as she joined their four children Prince Christian, 12, Princess Josephine, 10, and twins Princess Isabella and Prince Vincent, seven, at the finish line. 

Posing with their medals, the family appeared full of energy, despite having just completed one-mile-long tour in Copenhagen.

Princess Mary, who married Crown Prince Frederik in 2004, looked flawless, sporting bold brows and a touch of blusher and lipstick as she beamed for cameras. 

Wearing her hair tied back under a cap and sporting the official t-shirt, she held up the medal brandishing the numbers 50 – a tribute to her husband whose birthday is on May 26.

The children posed alongside her mother all holding up their medallions dressed in matching t-shirts, with the girls sporting caps like their mother.

The Royal Run takes place in the cities Aalborg, Aarhus, Esbjerg, Odense and Copenhagen and more than 70.000 people are expected to participate during the day long sports event. 

The Crown Prince himself, who was not present at this event, will also run in all five cities.

The last city of the day is Copenhagen, where he will run together with some 40,000 people.

The love story between Princess Mary and Prince Frederick has been well documented; the couple met in a Sydney bar and Mary, born in Tasmania, moved to the northern hemisphere to be with Frederik. 

In December, in a candid interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, the Crown Princess revealed that moving to the other side of the world was difficult.

She said: ‘I did experience a feeling of loneliness – short-term – when I first moved to Denmark,’ she told the magazine.

‘Moving to Denmark was a huge change in my life – a new culture, new language, new friends, and another way of life.’ ‘So, I see it as quite natural that at times I felt quite alone or a little bit like I was on the outside looking in.’
