Crown Princess Maria of Denmark offered a rare glimpse into the palace etiquette on Tuesday when she pressed against a wall when Queen Margrethe entered a royal coffin.
The Danish royal was at a gala concert at Fredensborg Palace next to her husband Prince Frederik when Mary was seen respecting her mother-in-law.
Mary, 47, looked royal in a ruby-red ensemble for the evening event, celebrating the work of community groups in Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands, and the special relationship between the three areas.
When Queen Margrethe, 79, arrived in the royal concert box, Mary from Australia saw herself pressing up against the wall in a token of respect for the Danish prince.
The family outing comes weeks after Mary was called a regent, meaning she can perform tasks as head of state when Margrethe is otherwise engaged.

The mother of the four – who share Prince Christian, 14, Princess Isabella, 12 and eight-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine with husband Frederik – wore a high-neck blouse and midi skirt embellished with translucent beads.
Mary, who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, combined the look with a matching red envelope bag and a dazzling pair of metal stilettos.
She accessorized with diamonds and ruby red earrings and wore her brunette locks in an elegant chignon, so that loose curls framed her glamorously made-up face.
Prince Frederik, 51, looked neat in a navy blue tuxedo, black bow tie, and patented shoes.
Queen Margrethe exuded a distinct elegance and wore a forest green dress down to the ankles with slightly ruffled sleeves.
The concert program included a selection of traditional music from Danish, Greenlandic and Faro culture, with the verses of one hymn – & # 39; Now, thank goodness & # 39; – alternately sung in all three languages, the Danish royal family Instagram said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the crown princess attended the annual presentation of the Christmas stamps at Copenhagen City Hall.
Mary, patron of the Danish Christmas Seal Foundation who finances five nursing homes for vulnerable children, looked stylish in a navy leather skirt and geometric flower blouse with wavy balloon sleeves.
Last week the princess proved her savvy style references by recycling a flower gown for a generous gala in the American Chamber of Commerce in Copenhagen, two years after she first wore it.
Mary is stunned in an Erdem dress of $ 2,328, which she wore earlier during the joint 80th birthday of King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway in 2017.

Earlier this month, Mary was named the Danish regent in a historic move by Queen Margrethe – bringing her one step closer to becoming the first Australian-born queen.
Mary's new role means that she can perform tasks as head of state when Margrethe is busy differently.
The Danish queen is gradually transferring the reins to other members of the royal family, with Frederick, his brother Prince Joachim and the Queen's sister, Princess Benedikte, also named as official stand-ins for the prince.
Mary becomes queen of Denmark when Frederick ascends to the throne after the death or resignation of his mother.
