Aussie rules as casually dressed Mary treats little Christian to ice cream

A sunny day in Denmark was the perfect excuse for the country's Australia-born Crown Princess Mary to slip out of her home in Fredensborg Palace on an ice cream run with her little boy Christian.

Wearing shorts and a sleeveless top the mother of two - who has a reputation as one of Europe's most elegant royal dressers - was clearly showing her Aussie roots with her informal attire.

Though raised in temperate Tasmania, Mary lived for a number of years in Melbourne and Sydney. The beach culture of both cities – and campaigns in Oz urging sun worshippers to cover up against the rays - had clearly rubbed off.

She and the two–year-old were both sensibly kitted out in hats as they ambled along enjoying the warm weather and savouring their cones.
