In scenes reminiscent of a fairytale romance, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark were recently spotted in complete adoration of each other as they took to the dance floor together during a royal event at Christiansborg Castle.

In a video released on Sunday, September 25, the couple were all smiles as the Australian-born princess was twirled around by her dance partner before reaching a hand out for her husband, who proceeded to twirl her around once more.

The Danish royal family took to Instagram to share the video with a caption that read: “For many years, the party dance Les Lanciers has been a regular feature when there’s a party in the Royal House – and last night was no exception.”

“So when it struck 23.30, the quadrille dance of five rounds was carried out in the Knight’s Hall at Christiansborg Castle with the participation of the evening’s hosts The Crown Prince Couple and Her Royal Highness Princess Benedikte and several other guests at the evening party for the government, the Parliament and the Danish members of the European Parliament.”

Mary, 50, absolutely dazzled onlookers at the gala as she attended the event in a previously worn Fushia pink, one-shoulder gown by David Anderson and accessorised her look with her wedding tiara and a pair of chandelier style diamond earrings.

The joyous moment will likely come as a welcomed distraction for Princess Mary after it came to light that she was embarrassingly “uninvited” to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

A spokesperson for the Royal House claims Mary’s invite was a “regrettable error” made by the UK foreign office.

“There has been a regrettable error in the invitation from the British Foreign Office’s protocol. It is thus only the Queen and the Crown Prince who, from the Danish side, will participate in Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral on Monday,” the statement read.

The Foreign Office has since offered its “profound apologies” to Mary and her family, citing the error as a result of the pressure of having to “send out many invitations within a short space of time”.

A Foreign Office source told British publication The Telegraph that because of the chaos of the funeral preparations “an error was made in suggesting that the guest of Queen Margrethe was also invited to bring a guest.”

No other statements have been made by either Buckingham Palace or the Danish Royal House following the Foreign Office’s formal apology.
