Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat, R.E. (Mary
Elizabeth; née Donaldson; born 5 February 1972) is the wife of
Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark. Frederik is the heir apparent to
the throne, which means that should Frederik succeed, she will
automatically become Queen of Denmark.
The couple met at the Slip Inn, a pub in
Sydney when the prince was
Australia during the 2000 Summer Olympics. Their official
engagement in 2003 and their marriage the following year was the
subject of extensive attention from Australian and European news
media, which portrayed the marriage as a modern "fairytale" romance
between a prince and a commoner.
