Crown Princess Mary keeps her poker face as Spanish royal visit to Denmark ... trends now
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark gave away no hint of emotion while attending to business today, after a Mexican socialite denied gossip magazine allegations of a romance with her husband Crown Prince Frederik
The Australian-born future Queen, 51, maintained a passive expression during a visit to Copenhagen's Centre for Danish Architecture as she hosted Spain's King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia on the third day of their state visit.
But no doubt she will be aware of the photographs shared by Lecturas magazine of her husband and reality star Genoveva Casanova, 47, in Madrid last week where they attended an exhibition of the works of Pablo Picasso.
The pair were seen out and about on the streets of Madrid in photos published in Spanish magazine Lecturas - which coincided with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary welcoming the Spanish royals on a state visit to Denmark.
Divorcee Genoveva Casanova - the former daughter-in-law of the billionaire Duchess of Alba - told Hola! she 'categorically' refutes any suggestion the pair are romantically involved, branding it 'malicious' and untrue.

A statement from the socialite said: 'I categorically deny the statements that suggest a romantic relationship between Prince Frederick and me.'
She added: 'Any statement of this type not only completely lacks the truth but also misrepresents the facts in a malicious manner.
'This is already in the hands of my lawyers, who will take care of the pertinent steps to protect my right to honor, truth and privacy.'
According to Hola!, Crown Prince Frederik's private trip to Spain was to enjoy art exhibitions, watch flamenco and visit new restaurants.
It is believed that he had planned to attend the Picasso exhibition with a mutual friend he shares with Genoveva - however at the last minute, the friend was unable to go and asked Genoveva to attend in his place.
After visiting the exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum, the pair walked through El Retiro Park, before heading to El Corral de la Morería for dinner.
Genoveva Casanova is a Mexican-born socialite living in Spain, who has also dabbled in acting over the years - taking a role in Goya's Ghosts in 2006.
Between 2005 and 2007 she was married to Spanish author Cayetano Martínez de Irujo, and the couple share two children. The couple, pictured in 2020, divorced in 2008, but have remained close

The socialite took part in the most recent series of Spanish celebrity MasterChef
She has appeared on several reality TV shows in Spain including the nation's version of the Masked Singer, the most recent series of Spanish Celebrity Masterchef and an all-star version of The Chase.
Between 2005 and 2007 she was married to Spanish author Cayetano Martínez de Irujo, and the couple share two children.
He is one of the five sons of the late Duchess of Alba, who was worth an estimated £2.2billion, and was one of Europe's wealthiest aristocrats and a direct royal descent from King James II of England.
They divorced in 2008 but have maintained a friendy relationship and she's said that they still speak every day.
After her divorce, Genoveva was linked to Mexican singer Luis Miguel, although the pair never confirmed if they were in a relationship.
She then dated Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, a Senior Policy Adviser with the UNHCR before coupling up with Spain's former Minister of Justice, José María Michavila after the death of his wife.
Her most recent romance was in 2022 with José Manuel Gayán Pacheco, an agricultural businessman.
