Princess Mary of Denmark tested positive for Covid, she’s isolating in a palace

It’s been a while since I’ve even looked through photos of Denmark’s Princess Mary. If you go in cold and don’t prepare yourself, it’s really striking to see photos of “the original” after viewing the copykeen version for more than a decade. The Duchess of Cambridge has truly been copykeening Princess Mary for years, hasn’t she? Mary’s style, her hand gestures, her hair. Anyway, Princess Mary is in the news this week because she tested positive for Covid.

Princess Mary of Denmark is the latest royal to test positive for COVID-19. The palace announced Wednesday that the wife of Danish heir Prince Frederik tested positive for COVID-19 and is staying in isolation at Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg.

“There is no indication that others in the family are infected. In connection with the test result, the Royal House of Denmark is receiving advice from the Danish Patient Safety Authority concerning detection of infection,” the press release continued. “The Crown Princess will remain in isolation until it is once again safe to end the isolation according to the applicable guidelines.”

The Australian-born princess, who shares four children with Prince Frederik, will celebrate her milestone 50th birthday in February. Their eldest son, Prince Christian, tested positive for COVID-19 last December following an outbreak at his school.

Mary is the patron of WHO/Europe and she’s been vocally supportive of the Covid vaccines in Denmark and throughout Europe. The Danish royal family have been vaccinated, some of them even got their shots publicly. My point is that while Omicron is a bitch troll from hell, all studies point to vaccinated people surviving Covid, and Mary should be fine. It sucks that this is happening to her ahead of Christmas. Public health experts are already predicting a huge spike in Covid/Omicron cases in January, following holiday gatherings. Wear your masks and get your booster shots!

    The difference between Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Mary is that Mary’s style actually works really well on her. She is able to pull it off. With Kate it just seems like she is too skinny and her clothes just hang on her or something is always off with her tailoring.

    I hope Princess Mary is able to recover quickly!

    • Woke says:

      And Mary style her more matronly/conservatives looks way better than Kate

      • BayTampaBay says:

        The shoes look killer. I would like a better picture of the shoes. Conservative dress and killer shoes is the professional way to go for a great Royal work look.

      • Soapboxpudding says:

        Speaking of shoes, the coveralls & shoe combo on the woman in the background is amazing!

      • notasugarhere says:

        Mary, Letizia, Maxima, even Mette-Marit tend to wear fun shoes with their daytime work looks.

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Lauren R: Mary’s almost ten years older than Kate. What looks good on Mary makes Kate look like a granny.

      • Lauren R says:

        True the age difference but when looking back on it even Megan’s looks seemed poorly tailored for her as well. Makes me wonder if the palace makes them use a certain tailor who should probably be retired by now.

      • Grace says:

        Mary will indeed turn 50 in February. I hope they’ll be able to celebrate as planned, but I doubt it.

      • notasugarhere says:

        She’s almost exactly 10 years older. Kate turns 40 on 9 January, Mary turns 50 on 5 February.

        IMO Kate looks/dresses more matronly than Mary.

    She seems so lovely and gracious. I love how it says she’s isolating in ‘a’ palace. Ahhh, to be a royal. I’m grateful that my family is very close for the upcoming Christmas holiday. We are vaccinated and have rapid Covid tests at the ready.

    There’s an outbreak happening now at Cornell in the US. 900 students have tested positive, they’re seeing a lot of Omicron. It’s just so exhausting.

  4. Janice Hill says:

    What a beautiful dress. The matching bag is great. And the shoes pop. She always looks happy, like the other Danish royals.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I like this shape on her, but prefer her burnt orange version of this same dress. She looks better in deeper tones.

  5. Nic919 says:

    One main difference is that Mary had to learn to speak Danish. Kate still barely speaks in English.

    • Soapboxpudding says:

      Also, Mary had a professional career before meeting Frederick and becoming a princess.

      • notasugarhere says:

        The only ones who didn’t have careers (or jobs of some kind) are Kate, Stephanie of Lux, and Charlene.

      • CuriousCole says:

        @Nota, Charlene was an Olympic swimmer in her younger years. It’s not a typical job no, but it demands far more discipline than most occupations.

    I wish her a speedy recovery. I’m not too into the Danish Royals but I like Mary. I’ve seen a few comments on how she’s basically the Danish/Australian Kate but Mary seems to actually put an effort into her work from what I’ve seem. Plus she seems to have the respect of Margarethe (the current monarch) so that definitely counts for something.

    • CuriousCole says:

      I’ve seen some dislike for her too and I don’t entirely understand it, unless it stems from how much she/her family cost taxpayers. Mary has a good number of engagements per year, she learned Danish, takes her duties seriously, popped out four heirs, and also wears some interesting fashion. To me, that puts her way out of Kate’s league. I hope she recovers soon.

  7. ClaireB says:

    Mary’s confidence and happiness allow her to pull off the kind of twee-conservative looks that Kate loves. Mary looks great in this dress because it fits her and she’s wearing it–it’s not wearing her.
