Princess Mary and Prince Frederik of Denmark celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary on Tuesday, and Mary was positively glowing at an engagement one day earlier.

Mary visited the University of Copenhagen on Monday to hand out two The Crown Princess Mary Scholarships to exchange students from the university’s Australian partner universities as they study in Denmark.

An unexpected love story

Mary Donaldson first met Fred at Sydney CBD pub the Slip Inn during the 2000 Olympics.

At the time the then 28-year-old said she had no idea she was talking to a prince.

They dated long-distance for a year with Fred making secret trips back to Australia, before Mary packed up and moved to Denmark in 2001.

It really was a fairytale come true as two years later, on October 8, 2003, it was announced the pair were officially engaged.

“I don’t recall wishing that one day I would be a princess, I wanted to be a veterinarian,” Mary said shortly after the engagement.
