Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have been married for nearly 20 years.

The princess was accompanied on her trip by her two youngest children, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine. Although His Royal Highness' absence has caused a media sensation due to the affair allegations, he is expected to join his wife along with their second child, Princess Isabella, later in the month. Prince Christian, who is second in line to the Danish throne, is expected to remain in Denmark.

News of the royal cheating scandal broke in early November, which was followed by a statement from Casanova addressing the rumors. "I categorically deny the statements that suggest a romantic relationship between Prince Frederick and me," Casanova shared on her Instagram 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."

Mexican socialite Genoveva Casanova has denied that she had an affair with Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark.

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."

Neither the heir to the Danish throne nor his wife, Crown Princess Mary, have commented on the allegations leveled against the king-in-waiting and the claim that he stepped out of the royal marriage.

This comes at a time when Queen Margrethe II has also been relaxing many strict royal rules in the latter years of her reign and even met second in line to the throne, Prince Christian's girlfriend, this past summer.

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark have largely avoided scandal since their marriage in 2004.

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, Margrethe II, in 2003.

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. Neither royal is expected to address the controversy publicly.
