Am I the only one, who see the resemblance between the sweater that Pss Josephine is wearing on the birthdayphotos and the one Pss Isabella wore on her birthdayphotos when she turned 5? :)

Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine, News Part 2: January 2013 -

Such adorable and happy children! I will never forget when Mary's pregnancy with twins was announced. I was that excited. lol And now the twins are already four. Time flies indeed.

Indeed. It's impossible to choose a favorite of the new pictures, but I'm also a sucker of Franne Voigt's pictures of the children. She manages to capture their personality so well - Vincent the mild, Josephine the strong - and it only helps with a bunch of charming bubbly children as the twins.

However, I want to highlight this beautiful picture of Josephine. Such a picture I'm sure hangs on the wall home at the family.

They make beautiful children, F&M.

No you aren't, I noticed it too. It's the same blouse, but in a different color. Likely inherited from her older sister. The pants have also been Isabella's. We very often see V&J in inherited clothes from Christian and Isabella :)

Not only that, but I'm sure I have seen a picture of Christian wearing the same gray sweater that Isabella is pictured in. I wonder if Josephine's is the one with stars on the sleeves that we saw in the Greenland pictures. I think Mary dresses her children very nicely, and there's nothing wrong with reusing clothes from older siblings.

What lovely photos! However like dazzling I also would've liked to have seen new photos. It seems a bit repetitive since the photo for the family's Christmas card was of Greenland, too. Having said that, I did enjoy seeing photos of the Greenland trip and it's still nice to see more. My favourite photo is the last photo – Josephine looks very cosy and also rather festive in her coat. Her coat also looks quite thick which means it must have been very cold in Greenland.

Josephine melts my heart, and Vincent is also very sweet. I think Josephine looks more like Mary, whereas Vincent looks more like Frederik. He also reminds me a little of Christian at that age. Do we know where the indoor photos were taken? Was it where the family were staying or on the Dannebrog?

I dont mind that pictures were from the late Summer, at least they were new ones. And it was a really special trip, I want to see one of Isabella for her birthday. Plus we recently saw the twins in Christmas, they still look the same lol.

The pictures were really wonderful, you can tell some parts of their personalities.
Its great that they reuse some of the clothes from their siblings, very normal in my family. I will also like to point out that they have inherited Frederik's love for reddish pants : D

it was nice to see some of the inside of the Danneborg too

I totally agree. There´s absolutely nothing wrong with clothes that are inherited from the big siblings :)

Yes. Then Frederik and Mary in 2006 visited the island Bornholm with the then eight months old Christian we got pictures from inside Dannebrog. The same place the new birthday pictures of V&J are taken:
https://scontent-b-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/...c6&oe=556DA7C1
https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.n...99b11334b73a43
https://scontent-b-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/...5c&oe=556E2D40

And when Mary turned 40 year she released some of her own pictures she has taken. One of them was with the twins on Dannebrog during the summer cruise in 2011. And they sit there and clapping their small hands in the chair Vincent is photographed in at one of the new pictures:
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.n...575957fbb273ce

Believe me, those four children will come to know Dannebrog by heart...
F&M's last summer cruise visiting Danish port towns was in 2011 and IIRC F&M is on summer cruises in Denmark every four years so this summer may be the next time.. Think last years summer cruise in Greenland was 'extra' and don't count as such, but we'll see...

I hope you are right, Roskilde, that the CPC will take a danish tour with Dannebrog and all 4 children this year :)

Alas, I don't think so.
The Regent Couple plans to visit the Faeroe Islands and Greenland this summer. - But of course if the RC couple get sick or are not up to the task then M&F may have to step in.
It would be nice to see M&F and their children in Faeroese national costumes.

You're right, but maybe both can be done or is it too much to hope for? The Regent Couple usually take on their summer cruises in June, while F&M usually first take on their summer cruises around in Denmark in August.

I wasn't aware that Margrethe and Henrik are due to visit the Faroe Islands this year. If Mary and Frederik have to step in I also think it would be great to see their children attend as well, wearing national costumes like they did for Greenland.

Has anyone from the DRF visited Iceland in recent years? Margrethe has an Icelandic middle name but I think that's because Denmark ruled over Iceland when she was born.

I just think it would've been nice to see photos in a different setting, but I guess that's just me. It's not that I'm tired of seeing photos from Greenland, because I do love seeing them, but as I'd said in my previous post, since the family's Christmas card was also from Greenland it would've been nice to see something new. But I do agree, at least they're releasing unseen photos from Greenland and not ones we've already seen.

I also think it's nice that Vincent and Josephine are wearing old clothes from Christian and Isabella. This happens all the time in families so I don't have a problem with it. My old clothes from when I was a baby, toddler and child have been passed down to relatives and children of my mother's friends. In the Swedish Royal Family, Estelle and Leonore wear old clothes from Madeleine and Victoria.

Thank you for answering my question. Did Frederik, Mary and children stay on the Dannebrog throughout the trip or in a hotel/other type of accommodation?

The DRF always stays at Dannebrog when they are on cruise. One half of the ship are for the RF and the other half for the personnel. I can´t remember if it´s the front or back half that´s for the RF :)

So when the DRF are at sea, then Dannebrog is their home

The birthday pictures are spectacular and I'm so stoked that we got more pictures than last year.

I'm 100% with you. I too hope they will use Greenland pictures for Isabella's birthday – particularly because she received the beautiful East Greenlandic kalaallisuut. They could even use Greenland pictures again for Christian's birthday for all I care. I loved that visit

The last state visit to Iceland was back in 1973 as one of QMII's introductory visits. As for official visits, QMII visited Iceland in 2013 to celebrate the 350th anniversary of Árni Magnússon and Frederik and Mary visited Iceland in 2008.

The aft part.
As a thumbrule aft of the funnel is for the DRF, forward is for the crew.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #3, 2015.
Written by the omnipresent Ulrik Ulriksen.

Josephine and Vincent's birthday Thursday was celebrated at home at Amalienborg.
Farmor Margrethe was the first to arrive, right after lunch and she spend a couple of hours with her grandchildren and left again around 14.30.

Half an hour later the guests started to arrive. Among them were Joachim and our Marie whom arrived in a car with Athena and bette Henrik in the backseat.
Joachim rolled down the window and said "Goddag = good day = polite/formal greeting" to BB's photographer.
The other guests were:
Caroline and Michael Ahlefeld, with their children Iselin and Julius. - They had problems with the intercom at the gate and stood for a little while in front of the closed gate, until Joachim and Marie came to the rescue in their car. Joachim produced a card and all could get in.
Christian Levin and Sofie Glahn with their Leonora and Peter.
Helle and Otto Reedtz-Thott with their Ludvig, Holger and Eloise.
Michael and Rikke Juel Brandt with three children.
Søren Bredevig with family. Søren Bredevig know Frederik form their trek with the Sirius Patrol in Greenland in 2000.
Peter and Caroline Heering with daughters.

Christian and Isabella came home early from school that day, so they were also present when grandmother Margrethe was there.

Not sure if this is an accurate guess but Newscom has photos of Queen Margrethe., Prince Joachim, Marie and others with their children travel to a pary? Given that Vincent and Josephine's birthday was on the 8thd? Otherwise I'm not sure what this gathering was for...

Yep, they are from Vincent and Josephine's birthday. Similar pics are shown in BB this week.
