It’s a festive February in the Danish Royal Household as they celebrate the birthday of their future Queen Consort, Princess Mary.

To mark the Aussie-born Princess’s 51st birthday on Sunday, February 5, the royal family released a new portrait of the royal.

Unlike her previous birthday portraits, Mary’s latest photo is surprisingly informal and more relaxed.

“Today is Her Royal Highness The Crown Princess’s 51st Birthday,” the caption simply reads.

In the photo, the mother of four appeared effortlessly stylish as she posed for the camera wearing a black and white polka dot button-up from Carolina Herrera. Her long brown hair was tied in a low, sleek ponytail and she also opted out of wearing any accessories.

For make-up, Mary has kept things fresh and natural, rocking a classic smokey eye and reddish-brown lipstick.

Royal fans were delighted to see Mary’s new portrait, with many Australians leaving comments expressing how proud they are of their Tassie Princess.

“Mary beautiful Mary born to be a Queen – you make Australia very proud.”

“You have so much class Princess Mary. Proud your roots are in Australia.”

“Happy Birthday Mary, love from Australia. You have become an amazing princess and we are very proud of you.”

Meanwhile, Danish fans have also left comments supporting Mary as their future Queen Consort.

“Dearest lovely Crown Princess Mary. Here on your birthday, we want to thank you for the huge work you have always done for Denmark and your many protections – you are one of a kind. Love you so much and everything you give of yourself both to your family and to DK.”

“Dear H.R.H congratulations on your birthday we are very pleased to have you in Denmark and future Queen with H.R.H Fredrick.”

While no further announcement has been made by the Palace regarding plans for Mary’s 51st birthday, last year, to mark her milestone birthday the royal brought Australia to Denmark and welcomed some of her home country’s most recognised animals to Copenhagen.

At the time, Copenhagen Zoo announced the expansion of their exhibits in honour of their beloved Tassie-born Princess.

The new display, named Mary’s Australian Garden, has officially opened its doors and is now home to 15 new species of native Australian wildlife and expands on the zoo’s already existing facilities for kangaroos and Tasmanian devils. 

Some new residents at Mary’s garden include koalas, echidnas, wallabies, wombats and emus.
