The mother and daughter joined family for a celebratory church service at Aarhus Cathedral following King Frederik's accession
The new Queen of Denmark, 51, was ever the poised royal when a snafu happened involving her eldest daughter on Sunday. Over the weekend, Queen Mary and King Frederik stepped out in Aarhus with all four of their children — Crown Prince Christian, 18, Princess Isabella, 16, and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, 13 — when Queen Mary’s hand got caught in Isabella’s hair as she gave a wave after a church service at Aarhus Cathedral.
As seen in a video shared to X by a royal fan blogger, Princess Isabella smiled as she made eye contact with her mom while the family greeted well-wishers outside of the cathedral. Queen Mary put an arm around Princess Isabella and raised her hand to wave — which got tangled in Princess Isabella’s tresses! The young royal raised her eyebrows in surprise before she and her mom shared a laugh, and Queen Mary quickly freed her fingers.
The relatable moment seemed to go unnoticed by King Frederik, 55, Crown Prince Christian, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
Aarhus is about three hours away from Copenhagen, where the royal family lives. The Danish Royal House said that the royal family joined leaders at the celebratory service held one week after the abdication of Queen Margrethe and the accession of her eldest son, King Frederik X.
“Today, representatives of both the official Denmark and the city of Aarhus, together with the royal couple and the royal family, gathered in Aarhus Cathedral for a celebratory service,” courtiers recapped on Instagram, sharing photos from the event.
“It is important for Their Majesties the King and Queen to be the royal couple for all of Denmark. Therefore, it was natural for Your Majesties to celebrate the change of throne in Aarhus today exactly one week after the events in Copenhagen,” the statement said.
Queen Mary and Queen Margrethe matched in purple outfits for the occasion.
Last Sunday, Queen Margrethe, 83, officially stepped down as monarch by signing a declaration of her abdication during a Council of State at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen. Queen Margrethe abdicated on the 52nd anniversary of her accession and made history as the first Danish monarch to voluntarily step down from the throne in nearly 900 years, per Danish Royal House history.
Queen Margrethe cited health concerns in her annual New Year's speech where she first announced her shock abdication, explaining that she decided “now is the right time.”
Shortly after, the new King Frederik stepped out solo on the palace balcony. He waved to the cheering crowds gathered below, looking emotional and wiping away tears.
The Danish prime minister then stepped forward and proclaimed the change of reign from the balcony at Christiansborg Castle. The new King made a short speech and announced his royal motto. His wife, the new Queen Mary, then appeared on the terrace of the royal residence — where they shared a surprise kiss! — and were joined by their four kids.
The royal couple’s eldest son became Crown Prince Christian, taking his father’s former title as heir to the throne, while Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent (who is 26 minutes older than his twin sister) and Princess Josephine all moved up a spot in the line of succession.
Last Friday, the Danish Royal House unveiled the official portraits of the royal family following the change of reign. The photos were taken in the Throne Room a few moments after the King’s proclamation on Jan. 14.

The court released three pictures from the historic day, all starring the new King and Queen. King Frederik and Queen Mary softly smiled in the first shot and were joined by Crown Prince Christian in the second. Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Isabella hopped in for the final shot, which captured the family of six.
While the Aarhus Cathedral service marked King Frederik and Queen Mary’s first appearance with all four kids since abdication day, they have stepped out for official duties since.
The couple stepped out with Crown Prince Christian and Queen Margrethe on Jan. 15 for the Danish Parliament's celebration of the new reign, where Queen Mary notably did not need to curtsy to her mother-in-law (who retains her Queen title) for the first time.
