The story of how Crown Princess Mary and Prince Frederik met (the real-life, incredible princess fairy tale love story) captured hearts and imaginations all around the world — Mary is considered our honourary Aussie Princess! Yesterday was her 45th birthday and to mark the occasion, we are zooming in on her incredible beauty evolution over the years.
Somewhat surprisingly for a woman in her position, Mary switches up her style with ease, wearing her glossy locks curly, straight, up, down, with hats, crown jewels or a hair barrette for decoration. Makeup-wise she plays things a little safer, but it's always a classic, chic look that suits her and the occasion perfectly — there's no denying that she does us proud flying the Australian flag everywhere she goes.
