‘The first time we met, we shook hands. He did not know that he was the prince of Denmark. Half an hour later, someone came up to me and said, “Do you know who these people are?” Mary revealed in an interview about how she met the heir to the Danish throne.

They were in a long-distance relationship for a year, with Frederik taking secret trips Down Under before Mary moved to Denmark to study Danish at Studieskolen in Copenhagen in 2001.

In early 2003, Frederik’s mother, Queen Margaret, publicly acknowledged the relationship, and the couple announced their engagement at Amalienborg Castle later that year on 8 October.
