Crown Princess Mary of Denmark will be featured on the cover of Vogue Australia for its August issue. This will be her second Vogue cover.
The 44-year-old Danish royal is following in the footsteps of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate appeared on the cover of British Vogue for its centenary issue in April.
Crown Princess Mary first made her debut in Vogue Australia in 2004. The Danish royal has four children with her husband Crown Prince Frederik, and her cover comes just after Kate Middleton featured on Vogue UK cover in April.
In the cover picture, Mary looks stunning in a sweeping black gown. She pairs her sleeveless gown with an understand diamond tiara and matching diamond drop earrings.
The Tasmanian beauty’s long brunette tresses are left loose over her shoulders as she looks behind flaunting her engagement ring.
She wears subtle makeup with nude lipgloss, mascara and a hint of black eyeliner. Frederik looks dapper in a black tuxedo with a white shirt as they walk arm-in-arm on the grounds of their home at Amalienborg Palace, with the sun shone on their faces.
In an inside picture for the cover story, the couple along with their kids have been clicked inside their home. The picture shows Mary sitting her five-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, while the doting dad has his arms wrapped around his two older kids Prince Christian, 10, and Princess Isabella, nine. Mary dresses casually in pale blue shirt and blue jeans, while Frederik wears a white button-up.
“I find it difficult to speak of myself as a role model, as role models are defined by the individual. It is what they see in a person that gives meaning or inspiration to them that makes another person a role model for them. It’s not something I consciously think about,” Mary said in her interview with Vogue.
The princess however added that she was aware of her responsibility as a role model, and the challenges therein. She wants to be able to inspire others. Vogue Australia’s editor-in-chief, Edwina McCann said that Mary’s “intelligence has always been underestimated”, but it is the main reason of her success. Besides, she was also to speak Danish just in six months into her royal wedding, Hello reports.
