Princess Mary debuts surprising new hairstyle

Princess Mary has become a style icon with her elegant wardrobe and her signature long brunette hair.

The Crown Princess of Denmark manages to always have her long locks styled to perfection and now, she has stepped out with a new and sophisticated hairstyle.

Mary, who was accompanied with her husband Prince Frederik, was spotted with the new look while attending an official dinner in Latvia with President Raimonds Vejonis and his wife Iveta Vejone.

Although Mary usually prefers to wear her hair out, she styled her hair in a low bun, with her hair pinned away from her face.

When looking at her bun straight on, it appears as if Mary has dramatically chopped her hair off.

However, from the side angle the low bun becomes visible.

The royal Aussie wore a suit by Danish designer Jesper Hovring to the event, paired with Pura Lopez shoes.

Earlier in the week, the 46-year-old mum posed for photos with her father John Donaldson and her children, Prince Christian, 13, Princess Isabella, 11, and seven-year-old twins Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent.

Mary’s father moved to Denmark after she tied the knot with Prince Frederik in 2004.

Sadly, her mother Henrietta ‘Etta’ Donaldson died from a heart condition in 1997, when Mary was in her 20s.

"I was 26. It happened too early," Mary said in 2016 of her mother's devastating death.

"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."

The Crown Princess previously told Danish media about the pain she endured following the loss of her mother.

"I felt alone in my pain," she told Danish reporters.  

"As if nobody understood what I was going through and I had come to a standstill while the whole world around me kept moving forwards."

"I would have liked to have spent more time with her," she said.

In 2001, Mary’s father remarried after meeting English author Susan Horwood.
