Princess Mary forced to cancel engagements at short notice

What went wrong

Apart from her appearances at the Palace’s annual New Year’s receptions, Princess Mary was supposed to return to work on January 16.

Mary, was set to fly to Aahus, to open the new psychiatry unit of Aarhus’ University Hospital before going on to inaugurate the TrygFonden’s Family House at the Neurocenter in Hammel, a town near Aarhus.

But, the royal was forced to cancel the visit last minute.

This was due to technical issues with the plane.

Her flight from Copenhagen to Aarhus was delayed as a result of the issues and she was unable to secure a replacement flight at such short notice, causing her to miss the event.

Mary is sure to be devastated that she was unable to carry out her duties.

While the openings went ahead without the princess, it is currently unknown whether she will schedule a visit for a later date.
