Crown Princess Mary has shared a sweet Christmas message as the Danish royal family returns to Australia for the first time in five years to celebrate the holiday.

In a family photo shared to Instagram on Friday, Princess Mary, 50, is seen beaming next to her husband Crown Prince Frederik, and their children Christian, 17, Isabella, 15 and twins Vincent and Josephine, 11, as they sat in front of an incredible view of Hobart.

‘Merry Christmas from “Down Under” – where we celebrate Christmas in Tasmania,’ the post read.

‘Here it is neither frostbite nor just trees but summer and warm weather.’

Princess Mary arrived at Hobart airport alone on Thursday morning and will be spending Christmas in Tasmania with her family who have since joined her.  

It’s the first time in five years the whole family have visited Australia together.

It is understood the Royals will stay at Government House in Hobart – as they did on their previous visit – and will be spending Christmas with Mary’s family. 

The family of six were earlier spotted walking through Bondi, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, catching up with good friend and bridesmaid Amber Petty. 

The future Queen of Denmark and her family also enjoyed a dip at Palm Beach, in the city’s northern beaches.

While taking a dip, Princess Mary wore an olive-coloured swimsuit and enjoyed the warm weather by jumping off a rock into the sea.

The visit to Australia is a private trip, which means the Princess and Prince are not in the country in an official capacity (the couple pictured at Queen Margrethe’s 50th anniversary earlier this year)

The visit to Australia is a private trip, which means the Princess and Prince are not in the country in an official capacity and have no public events scheduled for their stay.

A statement from the royal household read: ‘In December, the Crown Prince’s family will travel on a private Christmas holiday in Australia to celebrate the holiday with HRH the Crown Princess’s family.

‘It has been five years since the Crown Prince coupled together with their four children last visited the Crown Princess’s homeland.’

Since marrying Prince Frederik in 2004, the Princess has been on four royal visits to Australia but has visited her home country at least nine times.

Princess Mary last visited Australia last year for a ‘secret’ solo trip to celebrate her 50th birthday.
