After three years of dating and intense speculation, the Danish royal family announced yesterday that Mary, 31, will marry Crown Prince Frederik, 35.
No date has been set for the wedding, but speculation is rife it will be held in the European spring -- next March, April or May.
Mary, who has been living in Copenhagen, yesterday quit her job with Microsoft to become a full-time princess.
Once she marries the prince, who is heir to the Danish throne, she will be the queen in waiting -- believed to be the first-ever Australian royal.
...
Yesterday no further comment was coming from the palace, although every media outlet in Denmark was trying to track down Miss Donaldson.
Miss Donaldson has never given an interview, although royal magazines and daily newspapers in Denmark are constantly snapping her photo.
Yesterday Danish television was busily reprogramming to air portraits of the new princess and her prince.
...
Nielsen said all of Denmark was besotted with Mary.

"Everybody loves Mary, she is very popular," he said.
"Because she seems down to earth, like a normal sort of girl.
"Everybody can relate to her."
Nielsen said the royal magazines devoted several pages to Mary every week.

The journey is a long way from Miss Donaldson's beginnings in suburban Hobart.
