Princess Mary and Prince Frederik have been spotted sharing a touching moment while hosting an evening party in Denmark.

During an elaborate dance with their guests, the Crown Princess was seen dancing with other partners, before taking her husband’s hand.

The Crown Prince smiled at his wife before gingerly spinning her around as part of the routine.

The couple were hosting the party at Christiansborg Palace with Princess Benedikte, and many important guests from Parliament were in attendance.


Princess Mary looked stunning in a floor-length fuchsia gown, opting for an elegant one-shoulder design by Danish designer David Anderson.

She finished her look off with a simple tiara and diamond earrings while holding a small silver clutch. Royal fans would have spotted that the Crown Princess wore the same dress back in 2017.

People were delighted by the video of the royal couple, with many labelling the pair as 'beautiful' and 'amazing'.

In a string of posts about the evening, fans were able to gain some insight into their royal life in Denmark.

Over 350 guests were treated to a three-course dinner followed by a traditional dance in the Knight’s Hall.

The party dance, known as Les Lanciers, is regularly held whenever there is a party in the Royal House.

The very first traditional evening party took place in 1958 with 500 palace guests.

‘Embarrassing’ mistake behind Princess Mary’s absence

This event marks the first time Princess Mary was seen in public since she was ‘uninvited’ from Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral due to a ‘clumsy’ error.

There were questions surrounding why the Australian-born royal did not attend the service along with her husband Crown Prince Frederik and his mother Queen Margrethe on Monday.

The Danish royal family confirmed Princess Mary would be in attendance in a statement published on their website on September 13.

"HM The Queen and the Crown Prince Couple [will be] present at the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on 19 September 2022 at Westminster Abbey in London, Great Britain," the statement last week said.

However, the Princess did not join her husband and mother-in-law, with another statement on September 19 stating just Prince Frederik and the Queen were at the funeral, with no mention of Princess Mary.

In a statement to Danish media outlet BT, the royal spokesperson said there had been a "regrettable error".

“There has been a regrettable error in the invitation from the British Foreign Office’s protocol. It is thus only the Queen and the Crown Prince who, from the Danish side, will participate in Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral on Monday,” a spokesperson reportedly confirmed.

The outlet's royal expert Jacob Heinel Jensen described the error as "clumsy and unfortunate".

"It has meant that the Royal House must now say that a mistake had been made, and that is embarrassing,' he said.
