Danish royals Princess Mary and Prince Frederik have stepped out together in style for a glamorous night out at a concert in Copenhagen.
While the royal pair carry out many official engagements on their own, the outing was a rare chance for the parents-of-four to have a night out together without their children — albeit for official reasons.
Mary and Frederik were at the concert held at the DR Concert Hall to present the Léonie Sonning Music Prize 2019 for excellency in music. The honorary prize is awarded every year to an internationally recognised composer, musician, conductor or singer.
The couple certainly looked ready to celebrate with Mary sporting a beautiful black lace dress and diamond earrings. The dress was more revealing than the ball gowns and stylish suits the Australian-born princess usually wears, with her black slip clearly visible under the sheer lace overlay of the beautiful dress.

Frederik held up his side of the style stakes in a smart navy suit and matching tie.
It’s the second time the royal couple has made an appearance together this month, earlier stepping out with their four children and Frederik’s mother Queen Margrethe II to celebrate the Queen’s 79th birthday.
The family looked to be having a ball as they crowded onto the balcony at Marselisborg Castle in the city of Aarhus for the occasion.
Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine all watched on in awe as thousands of people gathered below to greet the royal family and wish their queen a happy birthday.
The Queen in particular appeared to be in great spirits as she joined in with the crowd as they sang a birthday chant in her honour. The royal’s voice echoed throughout the grounds as she threw her arm up in the air in enthusiasm. Her moves were copied by eight-year-old Princess Josephine who stood proudly by her father’s side throughout the chant.
Once the chant was finished the royal family happily waved to the crowds of people below as a band played the Danish national anthem. At one point the kids left the balcony to collect a bouquet of flowers which Isabella then delivered to her grandmother.
The brief appearance showed the close bond between the family, with Mary and the Queen sharing a joke together at one point and the children laughing along as they watched their grandmother enjoy her special day.
