Princess Mary posts Christmas message about loneliness after Prince Frederik’s alleged ‘affair’

Princess Mary has posted a cryptic message about loneliness and the importance of positive human connection before Christmas.

The post comes after rumours of an affair between her husband, Crown Prince Frederik, and Mexican socialite Genoveva Casanova, which surfaced a month ago.

The pair hit deadlines after Spanish publication Lecturas published photos of them spending a day exploring Madrid last month.

They were spotted wandering around the city’s El Retiro park, enjoying a Picasso exhibit and going out for dinner.

Despite the rumours, the Danish royal family have presented a “business as normal” attitude as they enter the festive season.

Princess Mary’s letter, shared on the Mary Foundation website, reflects on the past year, describing it as shorter than previous years and filled with significant events.

An excerpt from the letter emphasises the need for human connection, in which she states: “We need each other if we are to succeed.”

“And at the same time, so much has happened that it is impossible to put it all into words,” she wrote.

“We have put a spotlight on the many faces of loneliness with a large conference. And we have talked about our view on bullying out in the world, where our approach is new and different for some, but which has also aroused both curiosity and excitement.”

Princess Mary’s powerful words were accompanied by a photo of her in the snow, wearing a purple jacket and a warm woollen wrap, as she flashes a smile at the camera.

Online people have criticised Crown Prince Frederik for his actions, while others thanked Princess Mary for her seasonal greeting.

Princess Mary recently returned to New Zealand from Australia, where she had been staying since December 6, reconnecting with family.

A spokesman for the palace told Danish publication B.T. that they “do not comment on rumours of insinuations”.

“I categorically deny the statements that suggest a romantic relationship between Prince Frederik and me,” Casanova said in a statement.

“Any statement of this type not only completely lacks the truth but also misrepresents the facts in a malicious manner.

“This is already in the hands of my lawyers, who will take care of the pertinent steps to protect my right to honour, truth and privacy.”

Princess Mary grew up as Mary Donaldson in Tasmania before moving to Sydney, where she would meet Prince Frederik at the Slip Inn pub in the city during the 2000 Olympics. At the time, she was working as an account manager for an advertising agency.

When their romance became public, she eventually moved to Copenhagen in 2002, and the Danish royal family officially announced their engagement in September 2003.

They were married the following year.
