Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has been spotted smiling and interacting with locals on a working tour in Fiji before heading to Australia.
On April 25, the Danish royal family stood close to residents during a visit from the local community in Nabavatu on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji.
The 51-year-old crouched down to greet a mother and child. The bystanders captured the precious moment on camera.
Mother-of-four Mary opted for a casual dress with a white button-up shirt, a khaki skirt and white sneakers, and wore her hair in a ponytail.
The visit focuses on the challenges faced by the local communities of the Pacific Islands in relation to climate change.
In Nabavatu, residents have been living in tent camps since a series of cyclones struck two years ago.
Those in the community seemed thrilled to catch a glimpse of Princess Mary.

Crown Princess Mary’s trip, which runs from April 23-28, was designed to draw attention to the impacts of climate change in the Pacific.
Between today and Thursday, her assignments in Fiji will be partly carried out together with UNFPA Executive Director Natalie Kanem.
According to a Danish royal statement, “The Crown Princess will focus, among other things, on how the destruction and evacuations in the aftermath of climate change are resulting in an increased risk of sexual and gender-based violence.”
It added that she will learn more about “how the healthcare system works to protect women and girls in vulnerable situations.”

Before visiting Fiji, the royal family spent two days in Vanuatu, with her visit shortly after the island country was hit by two cyclones and two earthquakes.
As part of her visit, Mary made field visits to crisis response areas, where she met people involved in rebuilding the area after the natural disasters.
On April 28, the royal family will visit Sydney, Australia, her home country.
This event will be truly special as it will be the first time in a decade that Princess Mary has traveled to Australia in an official capacity.
The Hobart-born royal family, 51, will return to their home country on April 28 to meet with Danish representatives involved in Australia’s “green transition”, while also visiting several Danish-led sustainability projects.
