    Princess Mary of Denmark

    Mary is an Australian who met Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, in a pub in Sydney in 2000 (not the classic fairytale meeting, and we like it all the more for that). She sits at the helm of the Mary Foundation, an organisation that works to prevent childhood bullying, domestic violence and loneliness.

    Princess Mary was also made patron of the United Nation’s Population Fund, to help support the agency in promoting maternal health and “safer motherhood” in 150 developing nations.

    Recently, she also followed in Meghan Markle’s footsteps, addressing the United Nations General Assembly at a conference focusing on the health rights of women and girls affected by conflict.
