Count Nicholas of Monpezat may have joined his aunt Princess Mary and cousins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine when they visited Sydney on a whirlwind trip this week.
Australian-born Mary, 51, traveled to Sydney with her 12-year-old twins last week, and a photo of the trio climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge emerged online.
In a now-deleted post from Bridge Climb’s Instagram page, the future queen of Denmark smiles with delight as she joins her two youngest children.
And now it appears Nikolai, 24, who is currently studying at the University of Technology Sydney, has joined his family leaving aside any tension in the embattled royal family.
Nikolai, along with his brothers, was stripped of his prince title by his grandmother, Queen Margaret, earlier this year.
Count Nikolai de Monpezat may have joined his aunt Princess Mary and cousins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine when they visited Sydney on a whirlwind trip this week (pictured on the climb to the bridge Sydney this week).
Princess Mary and her twins, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent, looked happy on top of the bridge.
But it seems the student has no hard feelings towards the family, as he enjoyed a climb on the bridge this week.
Speaking last month, Nikolai said he is excited to “chart his own course” after being stripped of his royal title last year, but will “still be there” for his closest cousin and future king, Prince Christian.
The royal spoke about what the future holds after moving to Australia this summer, in an interview with Deseo Magazine.
He traveled to Australia to study on exchange at the University of Technology Sydney for a semester, accompanied by his glamorous designer girlfriend Benedikte Thoustrup.
However, despite tensions in the family last year, when Queen Margaret stripped Prince Joachim’s four children of their prince and princess titles, Nikolai appears to hold no ill will towards his grandmother.
The count told the outlet that he feels “blessed to be in a position” where he can decide his own path and expressed his affection for the future king, Prince Christian, who had just turned 18.
‘They’re really cool and I love how expressive the young people here are. His style is so relaxed and carefree. I love how they sometimes walk barefoot (although I would never do that) or just in thongs.’
She explained that she had a “very conservative clothing style” growing up, but was “interested in exploring more” her fashion.
Crown Princess Mary appeared to shed a tear at Queenstown Airport on Thursday as she and her husband said goodbye to friends on the tarmac.
The appearance comes as Crown Princess Mary appeared to shed a tear at Queenstown Airport as she and her husband said goodbye to friends on the tarmac.
The royal couple were leaving for Brisbane on Thursday to continue their family holiday after just four days in New Zealand’s adventure capital with their three youngest children.
Crown Prince Frederik, 55, smiled and hugged airport staff, as Mary said an emotional farewell to a friend after making a cryptic Christmas post about loneliness on her foundation’s website.
Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, both 12, and Princess Elizabeth, 16, waited patiently for their parents to finish saying goodbye and check in for the next leg of their journey.
The holiday started early for Mary and the twins who arrived in Australia on December 6 to see family and even climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
They then crossed the ditch on a private plane where they met up with the Crown Prince and Princess Elizabeth for a much-needed escape from the spotlight.
The prince and his Australian princess have been rocked by infidelity rumors since November, putting their “fairytale romance” under the microscope.
Princess Mary has shared a cryptic post about loneliness and the need for positive human connection before Christmas.
The rumors began when Prince Frederik was photographed enjoying a night out in Spain with his friend Genoveva Casanova without his wife.
Ahead of the family’s flight from New Zealand, Princess Mary shared a cryptic post about loneliness and the need for positive human connection before Christmas.
In the letter published in the Maria Foundation website, the future queen reflected on the past year and said she felt it was shorter than previous years.
“And at the same time, so many things have happened that it’s impossible to put it all into words,” he continued.
An excerpt shared on the official Instagram of the Danish Royal House led some to speculate that the princess was using her foundation to hint at rumors of the affair.
“We need each other if we want to be successful.” And this is not only true in the world of work and for those of us working to combat social isolation,” she said.
‘This is true for all of us. Humans need humans.’
The post and the powerful words appeared alongside a beautiful image of the royals in the snow.
She wore a purple jacket under a warm wool robe and gave the camera a soft smile.
Their trip came after rumors that the prince was having an affair with Mexican socialite Genoveva Casanova rocked the Danish Royal House.
‘The Danish royal family is lucky to have you. I hope her husband realizes that he has greatly embarrassed you and your children. You will be a good queen,’ a fan commented.
Another wrote: ‘I think this is a sad year for Mary, her husband’s (alleged) betrayal is public. What a brave woman, she can do anything. I just adore her.’
Some came to the royals’ defense and asked people to stop talking about the alleged romance.
But these people were often criticized by others.
‘Have you seen the movie that morning, where he walks through the city with his suitcase and no pet, standing at a public bus stop waiting to be picked up? He Has Made Himself, Mary and Many Others a Laughing Stock! It is naive to continue believing that he is completely innocent,” one woman wrote.
She said it doesn’t matter if there was an affair, the fact that he was in Spain with another woman was enough.
Others simply thanked him for his Christmas greeting.
“You are so wonderful, our beautiful crown princess,” one fan wrote, echoing the sentiment of dozens of others.
Princess Mary landed in New Zealand on December 18, where she was greeted by Prince Frederick and his eldest daughter Isabella.
The Crown Princess had arrived in Australia 12 days earlier with her twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
The group of three were photographed atop the Sydney Harbor Bridge, but the photo taken of each climber was quickly removed from the tour company’s Instagram account.
