On November 13 a traditional Royal Hunt was held at Gribskov in Northern Zealand, conducted by Her Majesty Queen Margrethe and hosted by HRH Crown Prince Frederik
It’s a traditional ceremony which happens each year, yet everyone looked a little uncomfortable, particularly Princess Mary.
According to body language expert Louise Mahler she looked ‘cold and disinterested’.
“I don’t see anyone looking delighted in these photos,” she adds.
"I also don’t think it has anything to do with he hunt, the ugly part of which is out on the field.
"They all look cold and disinterested."
Princess Mary and Prince Frederick were seen inspecting the slaughtered deer laid on the lawn of the palace.
A total of 20 deer were killed along with two foxes in the Gribskov forest, which is one of the largest in Denmark.
Every year the royal hunts take place from October to mid January.
The couple have previously attended the hunt with their twins who were five at the time, which drew criticism from PETA Australia.
‘Given the now well-established link between cruelty to animals in childhood and violent behaviour in adulthood, not only is it insensitive for Prince Frederik and Princess Mary to teach their children that killing animals is acceptable, it's also a poor parenting decision, Campaign Director Ashley Fruno said at the time.
'Few people today view hunting as anything other than a violent blood sport, a cheap thrill at taking a life and a display of wanton power over the powerless,’ she added.
‘It is surely the parents’ responsibility to help children grow into compassionate leaders for their country, with respect for all living beings.'
