King Frederik and Queen Mary carried out a week-long tour of Greenland in a significant milestone for the couple in the first six months of Frederik's reign.

The Danish royals, who celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in May, were very tactile with one another on their trip.

Photos shared on their official Instagram account show the pair cuddled up together during a coffee morning in the village of Qassiarsuk.

Other snaps showed Frederik and Mary with their arms around one another as they boarded a boat and enjoyed a scenic walk along the coastline.

The pair were also joined by their 13-year-old twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, earlier on the tour, where they visited an Arctic research station and took part in a family fun day in Qeqertarsuaq.

Their royal visit to Greenland came just days after the king and queen celebrated Crown Prince Christian's high school graduation, with the couple spotted wrapping their arms around each other as they left the ceremony.

Take a look at the cosiest pictures of Frederik and Mary from their Greenland trip below…

Royal traditions

Frederik and Mary once again wore traditional outfits for their visit to Sisimiut in Greenland. Mary sported a Kalaallisut – a national costume which features brightly coloured beads, as well as beautifully decorated kamiks (boots).
