OK, ten is big and five is biggish but in Denmark, the first really huge landmark wedding anniversary comes exactly 12 and a half years after saying 'I do'. Today, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary reached that milestone and as a special present, their friends and family woke them up at 6.30am and posted a photo online. Happy Anniversary.
Happily, the beautiful bride of May 14th 2004 is just as lovely as a mother of four with no make up and her dressing gown on early doors on November 14th 2016 and along with her still handsome prince, looked very pleased to see all those who wanted to get the party started.
The Danish Royal House also shared lots of images of that famous royal wedding all those years ago. It still has all the magic moments of a fairytale and twelve and a half years on, Mary and Fred look just as loved up. When you get your happy ending, who cares about getting up at 6.30 in the morning. Roll on 25 years.
