Citizenship and marriage agreement
The Danish Folketing (parliament) passed a special law (Mary's Law) giving Mary Donaldson Danish citizenship upon her marriage, a standard procedure for new foreign members of the royal family. Mary was previously a dual citizen of Australia and the United Kingdom. Formerly a Presbyterian, Mary became Lutheran. On entering the royal family, Mary signed a marriage agreement similar to those of her father-in-law and her commoner ex-sister-in-law. The agreement was subsequently updated in late 2006. The details of the first and second agreements have never been made public.

Frederik was present for the delivery and the infant was healthy, weighed 3.5 kg (7.7 lbs) and measured 51 cm (20 ins). His name, Christian Valdemar Henri John, was announced at his christening on 21 January 2006 at Christiansborg Palace Chapel in Copenhagen.

Valdemar is a historically significant name in Denmark, associated with both the Danish royal family and the national flag the Dannebrog. Henri and John are the names of his two grandfathers.

On 21 April 2007 Mary gave birth for the second time, again at Copenhagen University Hospital, at 16.02 local time. The newborn girl weighed 3.350 kg and was 50 cm long. The new princess is third in line to the throne after her father Crown Prince Frederik and her brother Prince Christian. The infant was christened at Fredensborg Palace chapel on 1 July 2007. The name of the new princess is Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe. Henrietta and Margrethe are the names of her two grandmothers. Ingrid is the name of her great-grandmother, Ingrid of Sweden, who died in November 2000, aged 90.

Royal life
After the wedding, in 2004, the couple went on a summer cruise of mainland Denmark on the royal yacht the Dannebrog, then to Greenland and to the 2004 Athens Olympics. In 2005 during the celebrations for the 200th Anniversary of Hans Christian Andersen, the royal family was involved in related events throughout the year. Frederik and Mary marked it in London, New York and in Australia, where Mary was made Honorary HCA Ambassador to Australia in the Utzon Room of the Sydney Opera House. Since becoming Crown Princess of Denmark, Mary has made a number of international visits and Frederik and Mary participated in the reburial ceremonies for Empress Maria Feodorovna in Denmark and Saint Petersburg. In the context of immigrant issues in Denmark, Mary has visited the disadvantaged migrant areas of Vollsmose (2006) and Gellerup (2007). Mary has played an active role in promoting an anti-bullying program based on an Australian model through the auspices of Denmark's Save the Children. Mary is also involved in a new campaign to raise awareness and safe practices among Danes about skin cancer through The Danish Cancer Society. Mary is also an active patron of Denmark's third highest earning export industry, the fashion industry. In September 2007 Mary formally established the Mary Foundation, with capital from public and private donations, to advance cultural diversity and encourage a sense of the right to belong and contribute to society for those who are socially isolated or excluded.

As a native English-speaker Mary's main priority from the time of her engagement was to master the Danish language. Mary has acknowledged this has been a challenge for her in several interviews at the time of her engagement and marriage.

Proud Frederik congratulates his 'woman of the year' with a kiss

13 NOVEMBER 2008
Prince Frederik was clearly bursting with pride as he bestowed a congratulatory kiss on his wife Mary after she was named woman of the year by a Danish magazine in recognition of her charity work. Much of it has been with the Mary Foundation, an organisation established by the princess in September 2007.

The Tasmania-born brunette, who wore a chic little black dress accessorised with an unusual green belt to accept the honour, told the audience she'd initially been surprised to be nominated.

She went on to speak of the "challenging and exciting journey" she's been on since becoming crown princess four years ago, and revealed that having her charitable contributions recognised "warms my heart".

With the award comes a cash prize, which the caring mum of two announced she would be donating to charity.
