Yes they started in kindergarten last year - in the same as this one Christian and Bella went to. It's this kindergarten we often see Frederik and Mary bring or pick up the twins from at their Nihola bike. See the post from back then here:

Congratulations and a happy birthday to Denmark's lovely prince Christian, but first and foremost, Frederik and Mary's big boy with his already nine years today

I'm pretty sure he celebrates his day with dad, mum and siblings in Trend.

Kongehuset has published two new pictures of Christian:

http://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...b8dselsdag.img

http://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...dselsdag-2.img

Both taken on board the Dannebrog in the beautiful surroundings of the family's Greenland tour. For the first time in many years it's not Mary who is the photographer, but F&M's favorite photographer Franne Voigt.

In addition to the new official pictures the Danish media celebrates Christian with various galleries and articles:

A large gallery (60 pictures) from Berlingske.dk with many great pictures in chronological order from Christian's birth to now: "Huge gallery: Congratulations, Prince Christian"!
Kæmpe billedserie: Tillykke, prins Christian! | www.b.dk

TV2 gallery: "Congratulations Prince Christian: A future King nine years old"
Tillykke til prins Christian: Se billederne af hans første ni år | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

Billedbladet gallery:
GALLERI: Prins Christian | Billed Bladet

Tv2 article:
Tillykke prins Christian: En kommende konge fylder ni år | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

BT article + the news pics
http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-foedselsd...tian-fylder-ni

ADDED:
Billedbladet article with a long description of Christian - a description where I think BB is spot on:
TILLYKKE: Prins Christian fylder ni år | Billed Bladet

When I look at all these pics I just cannot find any resemblence to none of his parents. He seems to be a fine and nice chap, but surely the least handsome of the 4 CP-children. It´s really surprising taking to account how goodlooking both Mary and frederik are...!

I'm going to have to disagree with you there on that assessment, @wartenberg7. I think Christian is a dapper young boy and I think he has a lot of Mary's beautiful features.

As for the birthday pictures, I was pleasantly surprised. Franne Voigt is far from my favourite photographer (his retouching habit is very unfortunate – remember this and this?), I much prefer Steen Brogaard, but these pictures are stunning – and the beautiful Greenlandic scenery definitely plays a part in that. Christian is such a lovely little boy and Trine Larsen's Billed Bladet article is spot on.

Yes BB's description of Christian is quite striking, isn't it?

Franne Voigt's pictures of the children are some of my absolute favorites, especially the series she took in May to F&M's 10 year wedding anniversary. But I much prefer her pics in colors and not in black/white. But personally, I think she's good at catching the children's own personality in pictures:

Mary. Totally Mary, but with Frederik's beautiful blue eyes and boyish charm.

I conquer – all the anniversary pictures were phenomenal as well I had completely forgotten that it was Voigt who shot those (and if I recall correctly, I mentioned how pleasantly surprised I was back then as well). He's definitely improved since those black and white photoshop failures.

I am almost entirely sure that Mary and Frederik's Christmas card this year will be a photo from Greenland by Franne Voigt as well and I absolutely can't wait to see it.

Even though I don't speak Danish, I see that Christian is referred to as ''Mary's.'' Just like the Australian ''abdication'' article, Frederik isn't even mentioned.

Oh well. Happy Birthday, Christian!

Frederik is mentioned in the actual article, I can assure you I suspect the reason why they only mentioned Mary is that their front page image is a picture of Christian and Mary. Inside, they also featured a nice little picture of Christian hugging Mary in Greenland along with a notice describing the moment. However, Mary is never mentioned singlehandedly in the body of the article, it's always either "Mary and Frederik", "Frederik and Mary" or "the Crown Princely couple".

Thank you, Archduchess Zelia. I feel better now. It's just that there's so much focus on Mary - her clothes, hair, etc. - it seems Frederik is often slighted. As we all know, it takes two.

Thanks for posting.
Lovely new photos of Christian what a good looking little prince he is.
I agree I also think the article on Christian is spot on, we could see on the trip to Greenland what a delightful, caring and thoughtful little boy he is and how proud his parents are.

Happy birthday to the little Prince.

From the 60 pictures from Berlingske.dk, my favorite photograph is of little Prince Christian waving with his paternal grandmother beside him.

I can't believe Christian is nine already, the saying "time flies" is certainly true! I like the new photos a lot and Greenland looks so beautiful, the family's tour there made me want to visit it. I enjoyed looking at the gallery of sixty photos from Berlingske.dk as well, Christian was an adorable baby and toddler and has grown up to be a sweet little boy. My favourites are this one, this one (Isabella looks rather funny here too) and this one. He also seems to be a caring older brother.

Why anyone with a right mind would say this about a 9 year old child is beyond me. Christian is a sweet little boy he always looks happy he is lovely and certainly doesnt need to be judged on his looks as a child.

Thank you helenbee. I agree.
I wish the children would be left out of the "looks" discussions.
