'In December, the Crown Prince's family will travel to Australia on a private Christmas holiday to celebrate the holidays with the Crown Princess' family,' the Danish royal family said in an official press release. Crown Princess Mary (50), Frederik's wife, is from Australia. The last time they were, her husband and the four children five years ago in their old homeland, the statement said.

Frederik's brother Joachim has also made holiday travel plans with his family. According to the palace, he, his wife Marie (46) and the children will go on a 'long-planned trip abroad'.

Queen Margrethe will spend the festive season in Aarhus at Marselisborg Palace. Luckily not all alone. Margrethe's sister Princess Benedikte will keep her company on Christmas Eve.

Controversy over title withdrawal in the Danish royal family

  Queen Margrethe II apologizes

Possibly this year, after the bickering about the aristocratic titles that were confiscated from his children, Prince Joachim simply doesn't feel like spending the celebration of love with his mother, In September, Margrethe II decreed that Prince Joachim's children Nikolai (23), Felix (20), Henrik (13) and Athena (10) must surrender their titles on January 1, 2023 and no longer allowed to call themselves prince or princess. That had for caused a lot of trouble for the Danish royals.
