Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has donated $50,000 to an Australian charity fighting childhood bullying after celebrating her 50th birthday earlier this month.
The mother-of-four heralded a new decade on February 5, taking the time to visit the zoo and release official family portraits as part of the festivities.
Despite living – and celebrating – in Denmark on the other side of the world Princess Mary paid homage to her Australian roots by sending a special gift to The Alannah & Madeline Foundation – which inspired the royal to start an anti-bullying program herself in Europe.
She launched The Mary Foundation in 2007 using money she was gifted to her and Prince Frederik at their wedding in 2004, drawing on The Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s Better Buddies program to start her Free of Bullying initiative.

‘From my very first experience with Better Buddies, I could see that the approach could be something very special in terms of creating communities and togetherness among children,’ Princess Mary said at the time.
‘It seemed clear to me that Denmark could take inspiration from Better Buddies. It has been very rewarding, and we are grateful for the starting point it has given us in The Mary Foundation’s work to combat bullying.’ 
As she was growing up, Crown Princess Mary’s mother Henrietta ‘Etta’ Donaldson regularly reminded her that ‘you can only be yourself’.
And while simple, those five words have stuck with the Danish princess since her mother’s tragic death from a heart condition when she was just 25 – three years before she met Prince Frederik.
Speaking to Eurowoman Magazine before she turned 50, the Australian-born royal said that advice had been with her during her most challenging moments.

Speaking to Eurowoman Magazine ahead of her 50th birthday on February 5, the Australian-born mother-of-four said that advice had been with her during her most challenging moments

‘She was absolutely right about that. I have reminded myself of those words when I have occasionally [felt like I was going to] lose myself,’ she said.
‘My life has offered great changes, joys and sorrows. 
‘There are several landmark events: The grief of losing my mother. The joy of then becoming a mother. My time at university. To meet Frederik. To get married to the Crown Prince and become the Crown Princess for Denmark and the Danish people that I love so much. And maybe to be 50 – who knows?’
The inspiring royal has no qualms about turning 50 and says age has given her a sense of being more of a ‘whole person’.

She age has given her a new perspective on things and that she is now able to ‘rest more’ in her self and to ‘dare more’ (pictured Princess Mary with her four kids on August 28, 2017)

She said age has given her a new perspective on things and that she is now able to ‘rest more’ in herself and to ‘dare more’.
She also plans to continue her work in under-represented and vulnerable communities this year and speak even louder on topics like violence, loneliness and grief.
‘Everyone has the right to belong,’ she said. 
Princess Mary’s mother Henrietta passed away in late 1997 from a heart condition.
Mary has only talked about her mother’s death a few times publicly and how the tragedy had an enormous impact on her.

‘I would love to have more time with my mother. She is part of me,’ she said

During a visit to a support group for young people who have experienced grief, Children, Youth and Mourning previously, Mary spoke about the pain of losing her mother in her twenties.
‘It happened too early,’ Mary said.
‘It’s so hard to see when it is so close and so personal, but as you get older, you learn to appreciate the time you had together as a gift. And the loss offers something that you wouldn’t have otherwise. It makes a strong person.’   
‘I would love to have more time with my mother. She is part of me.’
