The Spanish magazine that published photos of Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik’s outing with a Mexican model has printed more claims of a rumoured affair.
Princess Mary’s husband was spotted in Madrid with socialite Genoveva Casanova, 47, in images published by Lecturas magazine.
Casanova issued a statement when the photos emerged, saying she “flatly denied” any suggestion of an affair.

She also indicated she may take legal action.
“I flatly deny the statements that suggest a romantic relationship between Prince Frederik and me,” the model said.
“Any statement of this type is not only completely untrue but also distorts the facts in a malicious manner.”

However, Lecturas has aired what it claimed was a timeline of events on the day in question.
After attending a Picasso exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum on October 25, Frederik and Casanova walked around El Retiro Park in the city, the magazine claimed.
Photos obtained by the magazine showed Casanova in wide-legged trousers and a black jacket, while Frederik wore a white shirt and dark trousers.

The title claimed the duo arrived at a popular restaurant – El Corral de la Moreria – where they watched a flamenco performance.
The publication claimed they remained at the restaurant until 1am.
The magazine claimed that, the next day, Frederik was taken by car to the airport where he flew back to Denmark.

On November 8, Princess Mary and Frederik portrayed a united front as they stepped out in Copenhagen.
They were with Queen Margrethe of Denmark, Frederik’s aunt Princess Benedikte and King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain, as part of a Spanish state visit.
Australian body language expert Louise Mahler analysed footage from their appearance and shared her professional opinion on what they showed.
The couple both wore structured suits, with Mary spotted wearing a necklace with her husband’s initial “F”.
But Mahler said there was “no joy shown” in the photos, captured as the couple weathers the media storm stemming from the publication of the photos of Frederik and Casanova.

Analysing Australian-born Mary’s demeanour, Mahler said she was “magnificent”.
“Her posture stays upright, her arms are long, her smile,” she told 7Life.
“However, she looks like she is at a state funeral.
“There is no joy shown, depicted in the lack of lifting of the orbicularis oculi,” Mahler said, referring to the muscle around the eyes needed for a heartfelt smile.
However, the body language expert stressed that photos could be “taken out of context”.
No doubt the stress from the wide reporting of the rumours is taking its toll.
Frederik’s private trip to Spain fell at the same time Mary travelled to New York from October 23 to 24 as part of an official visit, according to Danish publication Dagens.

Sources close to Casanova told Dagens that Frederik and Casanova are “simply old friends with several mutual acquaintances”.
Casanova was previously married into royal lineage, wedding Cayetano Martínez, the current Count of Salvatierra and Duke of Arjona in Spain in 2005.
The couple filed for divorce three years later.
