Princess Mary is decorating the palace just days before she heads back to Australia to celebrate Christmas.
In an adorable video shared to Instagram, the 50-year-old Princess is seen putting up Christmas decorations inside the Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg, in Copenhagen.
She was also seen getting help from her two dogs, Grace and Coco, who are certainly not missing out on Christmas.
The video, which is part of the Danish Royal Household’s annual Advent Calendar in the countdown to December 25, shows Princess Mary putting the final touches on the tree.
“The two four-legged members of the Crown Prince family Grace and Coco also need to know that it’s Christmas!” the caption read.
“Look what’s hiding in the dog’s Christmas stockings, hanging on the family’s fireplace.”
Nearby are stockings for each one of her four children, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
There are also stockings for Grace and Coco who are then given a treat as Princess Mary ties a Christmas collar around their necks.
Last month, the palace announced that Princess Mary will be heading down under with her husband Crown Prince Frederik and their four children Prince Christian, 17, Princess Isabella, 15, and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, 11, to celebrate the festive season.
It will be their first private visit to Australia in five years.
The Danish royal household confirmed the Crown Prince family’s Australian holiday in a statement.
“In December, the Crown Prince family will travel on a private Christmas holiday in Australia to celebrate the holiday together with HRH the Crown Princess’s family,” the palace said.
“It has been five years since the Crown Prince couple together with their four children last visited the Crown Princess’s homeland.”
Crown Princess Mary has family in both Tasmania, where she was born, and in Western Australia.
