Prince Frederik and his wife are in India to promote a green business focusing on water and energy in a densely populated country.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, together with her husband, Crown Prince Frederick, who are in India on a mission to strengthen the green strategic partnership between the two countries, visited one of the most famous sights of this state – the Taj Mahal. On the official page of the princess in the social network there was a picture taken against the backdrop of the most famous mausoleum in the world.
In the frame, the couple sits on a marble bench, with an Indian shrine towering behind them. The crown princess is wearing a white dress shirt and a long skirt with Indian motifs, complemented by a leather belt. Freneric is wearing a white shirt, mustard blazer, light-colored jeans, and blue sneakers. The couple sit facing each other and look at the camera.
“Not so long ago, the spouses of the crown prince visited the famous Indian marble monument Taj Mahal. The white monument is located near the northern Indian city of Agra, which used to be the capital of the Great Mughals. The Taj Mahal was built in 1632-1653 by the great magnate Shah Jahan and is mausoleum for his late wife Mumtaz Mahal,” the caption reads.
The couple also shared a video.
The photo posing has become something of a cult following, thanks in no small part to the famous photo of Princess Diana taken at the same location. The mother of Princes William and Harry was photographed on the same bench during her visit in 1992, sitting alone in front of the historic building. Later that year, she announced her separation from Prince Charles. Royal photographer Anwar Hussein, who took the famous photo, said that until recently no one knew whether the Princess of Wales would come, as she made her wait a long time.
On the same bench, Kate Middleton and Prince William were photographed later during their visit to India in 2016.
The Taj Mahal is considered a symbol of eternal love. It was built by order of the descendant of Tamerlane, the padishah of the Mughal Empire Shah Jahan, in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died in childbirth of the fourteenth child. Later, Shah Jahan himself was buried in the mausoleum.
