Royal fun in the sun: Princess Mary poses makeup-free during relaxing holiday

Royal fun in the sun: Princess Mary poses makeup-free during relaxing holiday

Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary never steps a foot out of line when it comes to looking impeccably polished.

So, it’s only fitting that when the royal is on holiday, she opts for a more casual appearance, choosing to go makeup-free as she spends time with her family.

The 47-year-old was glowing in a recent photograph posted to the Danish royal family’s Instagram page, as she stood by her husband Prince Frederik’s side aboard the family yacht.

Sporting a fresh face and a paisley-print dress, Mary soaked in the afternoon sun.

The Crown Prince shared a series of snaps on the Danish royal family’s official social media page, documenting their summer break in Denmark. 

Frederik and Mary, alongside their children Prince Christian, 13, Princess Isabella, 12, and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, eight, have been exploring the country that they call home by visiting several locations on board the yacht.

They recently visited Kongsore, in Denmark’s north, where the entire family took part in an obstacle course. Having trained at that same location during his time in the Danish navy, Prince Frederik wrote on Instagram that he “had the pleasure of showing the whole family my former workplace”.

Another photo shows Prince Christian bravely diving from the deck of the yacht, showing off his penchant for adrenaline-filled activities.
