Denmark gets its Australian 'Matilda'

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, 35, has married Tasmanian former estate agent Mary Donaldson, 32. The couple met four years ago in Sydney at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, during which the Crown Prince accompanied the Danish sailing team, and she eventually agreed to wed him, renouncing both her Australian and British citizenships and undertaking two years of Danish studies prior to her wedding. Miss Donaldson, who will now be known as Crown Princess Mary, seems to have been taken to the hearts of the Danish nation. A joyful and happy occasion and I wish the couple much happiness for the future.
