(May 14, 2004 - present) (4 children)
Met her husband, Kronprins Frederik at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, where she lived at the time.
Donaldson and Crown Prince Frederik married on May 14, 2004 in Copenhagen Cathedral, in Copenhagen. She wore a wedding gown designed by Danish designer Uffe Frank and had a small bridal party which included her two sisters and her friend Amber Petty, a radio announcer on commercial radio in Australia. Frederik was supported by his brother Prince Joachim. Three of her nieces, Erin and Kate Stephens and Madisson Woods, were flower girls; Frederik's nephew Prince Nikolai of Denmark and first cousin once removed, Count Richard von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth were pageboys. The wedding was celebrated in Copenhagen and at Fredensborg Palace. The couple reportedly spent their honeymoon in Africa.
The couple have four children:
Prince Christian Valdemar Henri John, born 15 October 2005
Princess Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe, born 21 April 2007
Prince Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander, born 8 January 2011
Princess Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda, born 8 January 2011
The Danish Folketing (parliament) passed a special law (Mary's Law) giving Donaldson Danish citizenship upon her marriage, a standard procedure for new foreign members of the royal family; she was previously a dual citizen of Australia and the United Kingdom. Formerly a Presbyterian, she converted to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Denmark upon marriage.
The Crown Princess and her family currently reside at Frederik VIII's Palace, one of the four palaces that make up the Amalienborg Palace complex. From May 2004 they have also resided at The Chancellery House, a building in the park at Fredensborg Palace.
