Denmark’s prime minister has postponed her wedding due to a European Council meeting focusing on the EU budget and plans for recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.

"I'm so looking forward to marrying this man," wrote Mette Frederiksen in a Facebook post that featured herself and her fiance Bo Tengberg.

"The Council meeting in Brussels has been convened exactly on the Saturday in July when we had planned our wedding. Damn. But, I have to do my job and protect Denmark's interests,” she added.

"I'm looking forward to saying yes to Bo (who is fortunately very patient)."

The European Council will convene on July 17-18.

Frederiksen also postponed her nuptials last year due to Danish general elections.
