While 82 percent of people believed Frederick was fit for the role of king, 86 percent believed Mary would make a good queen.

Danish royal commentator Kim Bach believes that, although Frederik is popular, Maria’s slight advantage over her husband is probably due to rumors of an affair that circulated after the future king was seen on a night out with a Mexican socialite in Madrid. .

Genoveva Casanova was forced to deny what she called “malicious” rumors after photos emerged of her with the Crown Prince in the Spanish capital, where Spanish magazine Lecturas reported they had dined together and watched flamenco dancing until 1 p.m. early morning.

Maria has remained tight-lipped about her husband’s dinner with the socialite, and the royal couple have put on a united display in several public appearances.

However, speculation is growing that Queen Margaret’s decision to abdicate may have been an attempt to keep Frederick’s wife of 19 years on her side.
