Denmark's Crown Princess Mary was seen crying at a Queensland airport as she said goodbye to friends before boarding a plane with Crown Prince Frederik. The latter has been in the news recently due to rumors surrounding an alleged "affair" he had with Mexican socialite Genoveva Casanova.
"So much has happened that it is impossible to put it all into words," the future queen cryptically shared on her foundation's website.
"We need each other if we are to succeed. And that's not only true in the working world and for those of us who are working to combat social isolation. This is true for all of us. Humans need humans," Her Royal Highness added.
The scandal surrounding the future king kicked off when pictures surfaced online of the heir to the Danish throne enjoying an evening on the town with Casanova in Spain. His princess was nowhere to be found in the images, which immediately raised red flags.
"I categorically deny the statements that suggest a romantic relationship between Prince Frederick and me," Casanova shared on her Instagram in November when denying she had an affair with the future king. "Any statement of this type not only completely lacks the truth but also misrepresents the facts in a malicious manner," she continued. "This is already in the hands of my lawyers, who will take care of the pertinent steps to protect my right to honor, truth, and privacy."
The Crown Prince and Crown Princess have not publicly commented on the rumors or Casanova's heavily worded statement addressing the allegations. Queen Margrethe II's press office released a short and simple statement to the publication B.T. in Denmark, which reads, "[Danish royals] do not comment on rumors or insinuations."
The crown prince and crown princess married in a lavish wedding in 2004 after a four-year romance. The future king of the Scandinavian nation first met Mary, an Australian advertising executive, during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Their desire to wed received the blessing of Denmark's monarch and Frederik's mother, Queen Margrethe II, in 2003.
The pair went on to have four children together, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine. Frederik will become the King of Denmark upon the death of Margrethe II, and Mary will become his Queen Consort.
The bombshell news originally surfaced amid the state visit of Spain's King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia to Denmark, with a Spanish gossip magazine, Hola, publishing the report of Frederik's alleged romance with Casanova.
Despite the swirling rumors, the king and queen-in-waiting did not let any possible frustrations show as they were photographed with the Spanish monarch and his consort.
