There are theories about Princess Mary’s solo Christmas card.

The solo portrait comes as another family photo was wiped from Instagram. 

A photo of Mary and her younger children, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, mysteriously vanished.

A photo was shared on Instagram of the royal trio climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, with Bridge Climb sharing the photo. But within minutes, the photo was wiped off the page, suggesting Bridge Climb were asked to take it down. 

Did the royals want to keep it on the down-low that Mary was living her best life without Frederik? Maybe! 

It’s not actually that unusual for Princess Mary to do a solo card.

In 2020, she debuted her first solo Christmas card, which was a real royal shake-up at the time. Ever since, she’s released a solo card every year.

The real Christmas card is still coming.

This isn’t the first time Mary has shared a solo photo alongside a family portrait. A day before the 2022 family post, Mary shared a solo photo, which suggests that a family photo could still be on its way.

On the 2022 post, Mary shared similar sentiments about loneliness. 

“Christmas days are a good occasion for everyone of us to let others into our communities,” she wrote.

“But even if we meet is not certain that everyone feels included. Because is possible be with others and still feel alone. For that we do not fight necessarily against loneliness because we meet. We fight loneliness joining in safe and open communities that build trust and the care that everybody needs.”
