PROUD MARY’S CHIL­DREN STEP UP FOR A DAY OF HORSEPLAY

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - READINGCORNER -

Crown Princess Mary (46) may have missed out on the Mel­bourne Cup in her na­tive Aus­tralia, but she still got to see some horses in ac­tion. She and her hus­band, Crown Prince Fred­erik (50), rugged up to watch the Hu­ber­tus Hunt, Den­mark’s an­nual cross-coun­try horse race, held north of Copen­hagen.

Three of the cou­ple’s four chil­dren, Princess Is­abella (11) and twins Prince Vin­cent and Princess Josephine (7), joined them on a horse-drawn car­riage ride to greet well-wish­ers be­fore prac­tis­ing their royal waves from a pri­vate bal­cony. Is­abella and Josephine also pre­sented the win­ners of the girls’ cat­e­gory with their tro­phies.
