She may have met her prince husband in a bar, but Princess Mary proved beer isn’t her choice of drink when she struggled to open a can yesterday.

The 46-year-old Crown Princess of Denmark is in New York to attend UN Week, and while she was there, she decided to crack into the popular Danish drink, Carlsberg.

However, when it came down to the moment the Tassie-born star went to open the can, she just couldn’t seem to do it and pulled a funny face in front of photographers.

She eventually managed to snap it open and toasted, while everyone laughed along.

Princess Mary is a known supporter of being sustainable and told Vogue in 2016 that “it will require a continuous effort and patience, and strong and authentic leadership: it takes time to create real and sustainable change”.

The mum-of-four is also the patron of Copenhagen’s annual Fashion Summit, which is one of the biggest sustainable fashion events in the world.

During the 2018 event, Princess Mary was seen wearing a stunning blue and white skirt made from recycled bottles and a green dress from H&M’s Conscious Collection, which is made using recycled materials.

Later on, Mary was seen sitting alongside Melania Trump during Donald Trump’s speech at the UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.

In the pictures, Mary could be seen folding her arms, closing her eyes and playing with her hair, seemingly uncomfortable at the experience.
