Melbourne, Aug 20 : Princess Mary of Denmark is furious with a Danish magazine, after it ignored her request for privacy and published nude photos of her son.
Mary became concerned when she saw paparazzi snapping her two-year-old son Christian without his clothes during a holiday in Denmark.
Even after friends and a palace official approached local outlets to try to prevent publication, Se og Hor (See and Listen) magazine used the photographs.
According to Danish palace's chief spokeswoman Mary had wanted to protect her son.
"Prince Christian had taken off his bathing shorts and didn't want to put them back on," Herald Sun quoted the spokeswoman, as telling the Daily Telegraph.
"The Crown Princess and Crown Prince became aware that there were photographers who had taken photos.
"They asked them not to use these photos and the photographers said 'OK fine'.
"Just to make sure that everything was OK I called three weeklies in Denmark, the three magazines that were present at the time, and asked them if they would please not use those photographs.
"Two said of course they would not, but the third said they would," she added.
However the magazine bosses said that the pictures were "innocent" and used them in a feature on the royal holiday.
