Princess Mary

Denmark's Prince Frederick and Princess Mary will attend the Eurovision song contest.

The royal couple are expected to attend the final on May 10, which is being held in a former shipyard in their home city of Copenhagen.

Additionally, Mary and the couple's four children, Prince Christian, eight, Princess Isabella, six, and three-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, are set to attend the family dress rehearsal for the second semi-final, which is to be held on May 4.

At the dress rehearsal, the Australian-born royal will be able to catch a performance from Jessica Mauboy, a 25-year-old Australian singer who is one of the guest performers at the semi-finals.

Copenhagen was selected to host this year's contest after Denmark's Emmelie de Forest triumphed in 2013, landing 281 points for her song 'Only Teardrops'.

While a number of countries will fight it out for their place in the final, the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany automatically qualify, as does the host country.

This year, Denmark - who are hosting for the third time in the competition's 59-year history - will be represented by Basim, who will perform 'Cliche Love Song'.
