Crown Prince Frederik is a prince of Denmark and Mary Donaldson is an ordinary young lady from Tasmania, Australia.

The wedding will be held in Copenhagen Cathedral and the festivities will be held at Fredensborg Castle, where the Crown Prince parents, Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik will celebrate the wedding.
But the festivities for this wedding will began as early as 11th May with a dinner at Christiansborg Castle, and the day before the wedding there will be a reception at the Danish Parliament and a gala performance at the Royal Theater. After the wedding the couple will drive to the residence castle, Amalienborg, in a state coach after which they will appear on the balcony-and then finally - there will be a wedding dinner at Fredensborg Castle in the evening.
