Princess Mary greets her 40th with glamour and grace

06 FEBRUARY 2012 A beautiful set of pictures released to coincide with her 40th birthday on February 5, shows how Denmark's Princess Mary is embracing what she describes as this "wonderful stage" in life.

"I think it is nice to get older. I don’t think about my physical age," the mother of four told the newspaper Berlingske Tidende

Mary, who was photographed with the family pet Ziggy, added: "At 40 years old you simply know what life is about. I am happy to continue with my journey through time."

The graceful royal isn't the only one in the family celebrating her birthday. Her sister-in-law Marie, who recently gave birth to her second child, celebrates her 36 birthday on Monday.
