Mary and Frederik join Danish royals for fun family shots

After being snapped enjoying the rides at a popular Danish amusement park, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik's next public appearance was slightly more conventional. The couple and their children, 19-month-old Christian and three-month-old Isabella joined other members of the royal family for a traditional summer photo call - which takes place every year at their summer residence, Grasten Palace in southern Denmark.

Conventional doesn't necessarily mean formal for the popular royal pair, however. The couple, who had brought along their pet Daschund Ziggy, were a hive of activity - chatting animatedly and giving lots of attention to Prince Christian and his little sister. Elegant in a flower-print dress and wedge heels, Tasmania-born Mary bent down to have a word in her son's ear as he gazed out at the assembled line of snappers.

Also present at the yearly photo session was Queen Margrethe, who at one point took charge of her new granddaughter, perching the child on her knee as she sat on the steps outside the Palace. The family gathering was smaller than years gone by however, due to the absence of Frederik's brother, Prince Joachim and his sons Nikolai, seven, and five-year-old Felix. The 38-year-old prince was in Copenhagen, where he was due to take part in the city's Historic Grand Prix.
