Dr Mahler also notes that the pictures of the future Danish King and Queen suggest they have struggled during the global health crisis.
“It is not surprising that even royalty are showing the same strain and tiredness that we are all feeling as we look to work through this pandemic,” she concludes.
The revelation comes after Mary recently called for change, while discussing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the fashion industry, its workers and consumers.
Ahead of the upcoming virtual Global Fashion Summit, the 48-year-old Danish royal voiced her concerns while speaking to Global Fashion Agenda CEO Eva Kruse.
