Sunrise host Nat Barr's brutal take on Prince Frederik affair rumours

"I'm shocked at these allegations!"

Sunrise host Natalie Barr has shared her thoughts on the rumours Crown Prince Frederik is cheating on Crown Princess Mary, with the presenter giving a brutal take on the reports.

Prince Frederik has been hit with allegations by Spanish magazine Lecturas, who claim he is having an affair with Mexican socialite Genoveva Casanova.

Nat wasted no time in implying that she believes where there's smoke there's fire with certain rumours, saying, "If it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck..."

"We don't know though, do we? They're allegations at this stage," Nat joked, adding, "I'm shocked at these allegations!"

"What did you call him before?" Matt 'Shirvo' Shirvington asked her through laughter, adding, "A 'dirty dog' as well, now he's a 'duck'?"


"An alleged dirty dog at this stage," Nat added as people in the studio were heard laughing.

It came after the pair spoke to the Daily Mirror's associate editor Russell Myers about the allegations.

"The only thing for the Prince is he would have known," Shirvo said. "He would have known that people would have been tracking his every move. He would have known that photographers would have been there at some point. Who knows?"

Lecturas shared photos of the future King of Denmark with Genoveva, claiming the pair are having an affair after they were seen attending a Pablo Picasso exhibition in Madrid last month.

Genoveva has slammed any reports of a romantic connection between herself and Frederik, telling Hola! she 'categorically' denies any suggestion that she and Frederik are romantically involved, saying the rumours are "malicious" and untrue. She also said that she is looking to take legal action.

However, Lecturas has shared new information about the pair's meeting, claiming Frederik and Genoveva went to her apartment building separately, both emerging separately two hours later before getting into the same car.

The pair had changed into evening wear during their time in the building.

They then drove to Spanish restaurant El Corral de la Moreria to watch flamenco dancers, with the performance ending at midnight, though Frederik and Genoveva stayed until 1am.

The pair exited in the same car, with the Crown Prince flying home to Denmark the following morning.


Princess Mary was seen for the first time after the affair rumours this week, with the future queen and her husband welcoming Spain's King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia during their visit to Denmark.

Mary gave nothing away with her expression, but photos did not show the pair engaging in much conversation together.

Frederik and Mary share four children and have been married since 2004.
