The caption revealed that the family spent their holidays in Denmark rather than traveling abroad, much like people all over the world who are exploring their own back garden.

Princess Mary and Prince Frederik can be seen cuddling up to one another in a cute couple shot, while in another photo they hold hands with their children, who all look very relaxed.

At the beginning of March the Danish royals decided to cancel all official appearances, with Princess Mary and her kids returning home to “stand with the Danes”.

In a statement released by the palace, it was revealed that Aussie-born Princess Mary, her four children and her husband would all return from Switzerland, where they had been enjoying a 12-week school stay.

"In light of the worsening situation in Denmark in connection with the handling of the spread of COVID-19, the Crown Prince couple has decided that the family will leave home from Switzerland,” the statement read.

“The Crown Prince couple find it most natural to return home and stand with the Danes in a time that requires a lot of everyone and where there is a shared responsibility for looking after each other."

The palace went on to clarify that the children’s education would continue in Denmark, once public institutions opened again.
