Members of the royal family are often seen to be the image of perfection, grace and professionalism. However, even the royals are subject to the awkward moment here and there and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark was the latest to suffer.
Earlier this week, Princess Mary attended the Design Awards 2018 held at the Bellevue Theater north of Copenhagen and was asked to present an award to one of the 12 designers to honour the best Danish designers and design talents.
Mary suffered an awkward incident while presenting the prestigious award for Designer of the Year to designer and architect Lars Vejen. As the pair took photos together with the award, the contents of the award box fell out and landed on the stage by their feet.
Photographers at the event managed to capture the award box contents fall to the floor as Mary reacted in surprise.
Luckily, the award was quickly put back together without any broken pieces.
