Princess Mary confident, happy and tired - expert claimsREAD MORE: Princess Josephine, 13, 'steals the show' with cheeky appearance
Royal watchers expressed their concern over Queen Mary of Denmark’s ‘sad carriage ride’ following the abdication of Queen Margrethe on Sunday – but a body language expert claims the royal is simply ‘relieved’ and ‘tired’.
During her ride, the newly crowned queen appeared ‘glum’ to some and many pointed out that she quite pointedly wasn’t holding the hand of husband King Frederik.
But body language professional Dr Louise Mahler said the Australian royal looks confident in her decision to step up as queen and while the ‘smile and energy have gone’ the 51-year-old seems ‘relaxed and possibly tired, which is possibly fair enough!’.
‘I don’t see slumped,’ she told FEMAIL. ‘Apparently those carriages are hideously uncomfortable.’
The newly crowned pair marked their rise to the throne with a public kiss on the balcony of Christiansborg Palace, much to the delight of the 100,000 strong crowd.

The crowd let out a huge cheer to welcome their new king, 55-year-old Frederik, to the balcony before screaming even louder when his wife appeared.
The couple’s children were then invited onto the balcony, delighting the crowd even further.
‘Long live the Royal Danish couple, FREDERIK X. and Queen MARY. I wish you many happy years and a long life alongside your beloved wife Queen Mary and your children,’ one excited fan wrote.
‘Those smiles represent such a united and beautiful family,’ said a second.

An emotional King Frederik promised to be a modern monarch ‘of tomorrow’ as he asked his ‘beloved wife’ and family for support during a new reign.
In his first public speech after being proclaimed King, the father-of-four, 55, as per a translation by royal blogger Gert’s Royals, said: ‘My mother, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe the 2nd, has ruled Denmark for 52 years. For half a century, she has followed the times with our common heritage as a starting point.
‘She will always be remembered as a Monarch beyond the ordinary. Like few, my mother has managed to be at one with her kingdom. Today, the throne passes on.News Related
