Princess Mary enjoys Tassie surf

LIKE all true Tasmanians, Crown Princess Mary knows the perfect beach escape can be found on the state's East Coast.

The Hobart-born princess enjoyed the surf and sand at Spring Beach in Orford earlier today alongside her husband, Crown Prince Frederik, and their four children - Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

The Danish royals arrived in Hobart on Thursday last week after having spent time in Sydney on their Australian holiday.

It is Princess Mary's first visit back to Tasmania in several years.
