Awkward moment Queen Mary fails to congratulate King Frederik on completing Denmark's Royal Run as she high fives finishers The Queen, 52, did not turn around to greet the King after he finished By Jessica Taylor For Mailonline Published: 08:00 EDT, 21 May 2024 | Updated: 08:09 EDT, 21 May 2024 e-mail 8 shares 2 View comments This is the awkward moment Queen Mary of Denmark appeared too busy high-fiving participants in the Royal Run to congratulate her own husband as he passed the finish line. The royal mother-of-four, 52, beamed while wearing sunglasses as she stood towards the finish line of the 10km race in Copenhagen and greeted people who were about to complete the course. Meanwhile, King Frederik, who had just finished the race, ran across the finish line and hugged his twin children, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent, both 13.

As he walks behind where Mary is standing and greeting the race finishers, Frederik does not appear to interact with his wife, and the Queen does not turn around to greet him. Photos shared in Danish media showed the King and Queen eventually greeting each other at the finish line - however they did not appear to hug.
