Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark have just celebrated 19 years of union. “My wife and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary. A very special day for both of us, as we also love to celebrate with our four children. This year, the day coincides with (International) Mother’s Day Matches. So I send you my message.” Mary, special love to you as a wife and a mother”, wrote Federico, offering his congratulations to “all the mothers across the country”. The love story of this European royal couple could be the plot of a romantic movie. The version is that they met by chance in the year 2000. Federico went out for dinner with his brother Joaquin and Princes Nicholas of Greece and Marta Luisa of Norway during the celebration of the Olympic Games. Then, they slipped into Australian went for drinks at a pub, where he met Mary and fell in love. The two immediately hit it off and exchanged phone numbers. Years later, Mary would remember that she did not know who he or his partner It was apparently only a friend who told her that he was a prince. Thus began a romance that completely changed the life of Australian lawyer Mary Donelson. In October 2003, the couple got engaged. They announced and married a few months later, on May 14, 2004. Together they had four children, Christian, born in 2005; Isabella, born in 2007; and twins Vicente and Joséphine, Who was born in January 2011.
Princess by Random?
However, in 2020, one of the bridesmaids at Mary’s wedding, Amber Petty, admitted on a television program that the first meeting between the royal couple was not as casual as was believed. “Sorry to break everyone’s hearts, but it’s not always about randomly bumping into princes in pubs,” he said. “It wasn’t a random meeting. It was a small dinner party during the Olympics and it turns out Mary was invited and most of the guests were royal.” Be that as it may, more than two decades after that first meeting, the couple continues to publicly dedicate words of love to each other and broadcast their day-to-day complicity. In fact, it is not the first time that this type of gesture has been made in public as she said ‘I do’ in a ceremony at the Cathedral of Our Lady in Copenhagen which was Letizia’s official presentation to European royalty. An event in which the Queen wore the iconic red dress by Lorenzo Caprile today.
