Followers have become used to seeing Queen Mary in an array of glamorous ballgowns and historic tiaras in her royal role as the wife to the King of Denmark, Frederik X. But before her time on the throne, Queen Mary was a student at Waimea Heights secondary school and later, of the University of Tasmania. 

A recently unearthed set of photos of a young Queen Mary show what she looked like way before she was part of the Danish royal family and you can see each of her four children in her.

In the first, Mary is seen smiling in a black and white shot which looks like it was taken towards the end of her teens. She is wearing a black and white check jacket and has her hair down. The likeness between the royal and her 13-year-old daughter Princess Josephine is undeniable.

In another, a young Mary seems to be smiling for a prom photo or special occasion. She has her hair in a half updo with minimal makeup and is wearing a cobalt blue Queen Anne neckline gown.

The 16-year-old royal wore a dress with a sash of satin material around the neck and a dress with a ballgown silhouette with ruched material across the top much like the number her mother had worn years earlier.

Her mother also wore blue for the occasion, opting for a dazzling one-shoulder gown in midnight blue with a cinched waist that showed her ability to rock blue at any age. She teamed the garment with a blue satin clutch, diamond jewellery, and the same glistening tiara she wore on her wedding day in 2004.

Queen Mary seems to defy age in unearthed photos from before she was royal. Take a look at our favourites…

Queen Mary was seen talking quietly with her then-fiance Crown Prince Frederik during the extended State Council gala dinner at the royal palace of Fredensborg after the official announcement of their engagement earlier the same day. She looked so youthful at the age of 31 in a deep teal one-shoulder satin gown with her brunette locks piled on top of her head in a chic bun.
