But they liked each other, and their secret romance began. Frederik went back to Denmark, but he kept in touch with Mary through letters and calls. Long distance relationships were really exhausting, despite that they’ve got to meet several times when the Crown Prince managed to sneak out to Australia.
So, in 2001, Mary decided to move to Denmark. She even got the job at Microsoft there to be closer to her beloved prince. And in 2003, it was announced that the couple is officially engaged.
On their wedding day on May 14th, 2004, fairy tale became a beautiful reality – Frederik and Mary were pronounced husband and wife. Both of them looked gorgeous – Mary in her amazing wedding dress with a white bouquet and Frederik in his royal uniform.
