Mary goes solo for visit to Prague

Share this:

Princess Mary of Denmark began her first solo official foreign visit on Thursday, but no doubt felt close to her adopted homeland during her stay. The 34-year-old Aussie, who has up until now accompanied her husband Crown Prince Frederik in his duties, travelled to Prague where she attended a Danish concert and visited several of the Scandinavian country's businesses. Tasmanian-born Mary seemed perfectly at ease on her trip as she enjoyed the hospitality of the bohemian Czech city. Accompanied by her host, President Vaclav Klau's wife Livia, the stylish brunette packed in the sights during her two-day sojourn.

During a walking tour of the old town, she was able to see first-hand Prague's charming cobbled streets and gothic spires. But it was a boat-ride on the Vltava river, with its famous Charles Bridge, which afforded her the best view of the romantic skyline.

Her arrival happily coincided with the city's twice-yearly International Music Festival. And the princess donned a glamorous orange shift dress to attend an evening concert by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra at the impressive Rudolfinum concert hall.

Friday's schedule also has a patriotic flavour as the mum-of-one visits a Danish bakery in the morning. She is also set to see the beautiful Strahov monastery which houses the Czech Republic's largest monastic library, as well as Prague Castle – founded in the ninth century - where a lunch is to be held in her honour.
