Princess Mary is known for her radiant, ageless beauty, and while some claim she follows a keto diet, others say her secret is actually down to plenty of exercise and following a traditional wholesome Danish diet.

“While there are plenty of Danish pastries in the diets of Danes, there are also loads of veggies, nuts, seeds, berries and oily fish that Princess Mary is much more likely to be tucking into,” nutritionist Susie Burrell told Newscorp.
According to the health professional, Princess Mary would most likely be eating
fish on a regular basis.
“Fish is often enjoyed at every meal, boosting the protein content of both breakfast and lunch, and a high intake of omega-3 fats is associated with healthier hearts and reduced inflammation in the body overall,” Susie says.
“When it comes to weight control, quite possibly it is the high fat content of the Scandinavian diet that helps to boost fullness at each meal, in turn supporting calorie control.”
With this diet, the royal is also likely to be consuming goat’s milk and cheese, which are higher in protein and lower in sugar than cow’s, and according to Susie, add “calcium into the diet minus the extra calories”.
Along with this, Princess Mary is likely to be consuming natural wholefoods such as nuts and seeds. “These are low in carbohydrates and, again, add a dose of extra protein and good fat to keep the overall profile of this diet relatively low in carbs, helping those who follow it to keep leaner and healthier long term,” adds Susie.
But despite the royal eating healthily, her sister-in-law Leanne Donaldson says Mary is not regimented about her meals. “Mary doesn’t follow a strict diet at all,” revealed Leanne.
“She is so active she just burns the calories. Mary, like the rest of her family, is totally dedicated to exercise. She’s always walking, jogging, or riding a horse. And now she’s also running after four children – that’s guaranteed to keep anyone in shape!”
Mary is also a big fan of tennis and recently kicked off her heels and popped on her runners so she could enjoy a quick game while visiting a children’s home in Hobro. With just an hour of tennis, you can burn up to 500 calories (2092 kilojoules), which would no doubt aid Mary’s weight loss.
Mary is dedicated to exercise and enjoys cycling and jogging, but running after four children has also helped the princess keep in shape.
