On the one hand, Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark were on official duties as they began their tour of Australia.
But the royal couple, who are known for putting family first, were also busy entertaining twins Josephine and Vincent during the visit.
The Danish Royals have returned to Mary”s homeland for a six day tour, and it seems the down-to-earth couple will be balancing work and family whilst on the road.
They spent their first day in typical Australian style, enjoying a beach stroll and a barbecue before zipping round the harbour on a boat.
There were touching scenes Mary was welcomed back. The girl from Down Under who went on to become one of Europe”s most glamorous royals has a lot of fans in her native country.
She and her husband received a warm welcome from Australia”s Governor General, Quentin Bryce.
“There has been much anticipation and excitement.” she said of the visit.
