This year, Princess Mary, Prince Frederik and the children have enjoyed a ‘staycation’ in Denmark on account of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
During the summer, they have spent some time relaxing in the celebrity hotspot of Skagen, a town in the northernmost point of Denmark.
Their vacation previously took in a stay in Gråsten, Denmark, at Gråsten Palace, which is the official summer residence of the Danish Royal Family – and Princess Mary shared more candid snaps of the family-of-six while they were there.
‘A couple of wonderful memories from the summer in the beautiful Gråsten,’ the family captioned a set of photos shared to the royal Instagram page.
‘With the desire for a continued good summer – preferably with a little more sunshine.’

The royals have been known to visit Skagen most summers for the past few years, taking it as an opportunity to step away from busy royal life and enjoy time relaxing with friends.
While there, the couple typically enjoy a range of activities – from swimming to sailing and playing tennis at Skagen Tennis Club as well as long coastal walks.
Princess Mary spent isolation with husband Prince Frederik, 51, and their four children, Prince Christian, 14, Princess Isabella, 13 and Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, 9, at Fredensborg Palace in Denmark’s east after the outbreak began in March.
The family chose to return to their spring and autumn residence from southwestern Switzerland, where the children had been taking a 12-week course at the Lemania-Verbier International School.
They usually attend the Tranegård School in Gentofte, Denmark, but had been studying at the Swiss boarding school to further their overseas experience.
Denmark gradually lifted its lockdown from April 14, but Mary and Frederik appeared to stay home until mid-May, offering rare glimpses into their personal life by sharing sweet family photos on their official Instagram.
