The Prince Consort will participate, as patron of Zoo in Copenhagen, in the inauguration of the new Elefanthus.
Since this was an event that included 2 members of the family, ive posted it in this thread.

Picture from BT and BT part 2 Henrik looks outof place in a white/ish suit & Christian looks very cute. It was nice of P.Henrik to take Christian to this event.
Madeleine G has a few lovely pictures as well

It is nice seeing Grandpa spending time with Christian like he has always done with the other two boys. It probably makes Christian feel like a big boy. Does Christian have a nickname or do they call him Christian?

That toy-elephant was surely a hit, Christian really seemed to like it! He must be a very patient little boy, these events can be tiresome for a little one. He's only two-and-a-half years old and so mature! Such a sweetheart...

This is Christian's first official duty, isn't it? Everything else is just family events (weddings, christenings, etc) and photoshoots, but this is the first time that the future king has actually gone to an event like this, isn't it?

And Christian is so adorable! He looks a little bit like his mom, but I can see a lot of Felix in him too! I think he resembles Mary, but also I think he's a lot like Prince Joachim (with the bright blonde hair as a little boy), while Isabella is all Frederik.

My goodness he looks just like Prince Henrik. He is such an adorable little boy. How wonderful that Mary and Fredrick let him spend such quality time with his grandparents.

Oh, Christian is so adorable! How grandfatherly of Henrik to take Christian with him for this event - I love the one of the pair looking through the glass wall. And the one of Christian clapping. And the one of him scrunching up his face....

This family exudes such warmth and spontaneity. What a family to be a part of, I reckon......I endeavour to sight that they have well and truly established a balance between royal and familial life and an assimilation of the two comes with great ease.

Christian is certainly his mothers son. The resemblance is very strong indeed!

Have you seen the new elephant house which prince Christian helped his grandpa open yesterday? Zoo architecture | Culture | guardian.co.uk - by Foster and Partners. The Indian elephants at the Copenhagen Zoo are said to enjoy their new house immensely; it is more than five times the size of the former old elephant house. I'm really looking forward to see it.

Wonderful avatar, UserDane...

I quite like the glass dome. Is there any greenery inside the enclosure at all?

Thanks
I haven't seen it yet, so I am not quite sure - but I suppose there must be...
I have read that there is a thick layer of sand some places where they hide various foods for the elephants and that the animals enjoy looking for food in this way.

Yes he was with Nanny Mette Hansen.

Prince Christian was the one who actually opened the elephant house by pressing a button on an interactive console.

So cute!

German Boulevard magazine Bunte has a nice and sweet picture gallery about the visit of TRH Prince Henrik and Prince Christian of Denmark. Christian is an angel.

Christian turns into a little boy now, toddler years are over. First time I see him really happy and relaxed! It was a bit hard to judge him because his peers are all female (spanish, dutch, norwegian kids) and boys are usually abit slower in the early stages than the girls (Leonor, Amalia or Ingrid looked more "grown up" indeed although they are same age more or less) but now he's making up the difference. Great to see him with granddad, the nanny seems to be around but no wonder, Henrik will be grateful for her support I guess!

It seems like Henrik would like some more grandchildren
Quote:
"It's a great pleasure for me to follow what happens in Zoo the year around. I've enjoyed that since I took over as patron 36 years ago and in the later years I have also had the opportunity to share the joy with my grandchildren. Unfortunately there are only four of them, but I hope there will be more."

There are lots of photos of Christian snuggling up with Mette on this occasion. We haven't seen the nanny like this before - Henrik must think she is doing a wonderful job. He is a lucky little boy - and it may be a lifelong relationship - look at Queen Elizabeth II and her nanny Bobo! They were close until Bobo died, indeed, Bobo had a quasi LIW role for many years. I wonder whether Mette will end up being so indispensible to little Christian and the whole family that her role will be promoted!

Thanks for the photos ayvee Bella looks so cute just sitting watching with Mummy (or Daddy too!), while Christian shows emotions (covering his mouth, wide eyes). Too cute! Awww! Just saw this picture of Henrik and Bella!
