This was just what I thought when I looked at the pictures first, they're wonderful and natural baby pictures for a family album. I love them, it's the sort of picture everyone wants to have of their children through all stages of childhood.

Prince Christian is certainly a real cutie. And he even has his own little plastic pool, how very normal :)

The pool is probably a very nice thing for him, considering how warm it's been in the Copenhagen-area recently... I wish I had one of those.

Christian is so adorable!! :) He's one of those babies you just want to eat up with a spoon!
My favourite pic is the last one, in the grey, blue and green jumper, his smile is so cheeky!
Thanks to Mary & Fred for releasing these photos!

I think that he always has and still does look exactly like his mom.

that's what I was thinking too! I also like how they dress him in the kind of clothes any (Western) parent would dress their little boy in. Other royal families often deck out their offspring in these precious looking outfits, as if we're meant to look at these kids as if they're 18th century progenies. Mary's bucking this trend clearly thank goodness.

As for the little guy himself, my how he's grown! And gosh doesn't he look like everyone from his dad to both his granddads to his mom! Don't really see Margarethe in him though, but rather tons of Henrik.

I am very surprised these three photos of the little (and adorably cute) Prince were released to the public. As Alexandria said, they are like normal photos one would take of their kids, especially the one of him in the pool. They're just common, everyday but personal moments that we have got to see. We get to see him not as Christian the future king, but as Christian the baby who dribbles while eating watermelon and does things all of us have done at some point in our lives. So endearing. I want to give the little guy a hug. :)

The last picture of Christian smiling in his cute little grey, blue, and green outfit is priceless! His smile is absolutely adorable. Can anybody say future heartbreaker?....

I hate to rain on this parade, in fact, I'm afraid to rain on this parade, but here goes:

I don't really like these photos. Yes, the baby is cute, but the pictures are ordinary. I prefer to see royalty in either formal events or photo ops or posed pictures. I don't want to see how ordinary they really are.

I will say, though, that they made me think twice about some of the the negative judgments that I've made about Mary in the past. Maybe she's not so full of herself, but I still would rather not see these pictures.

Prince Christian looks absolutely adorable. I love how Mary & Frederik are trying to be as normal a family as possible with Christian. Maybe they are under the realization that pictures will be posted of their family one way or the other, so it might as well be under their terms. I think they are doing a fabulous job.

Well, I really do like them and here's why: I'm from a country where the crown princely couple always gives offical photo shoots with their children and yes, we had some wonderful pictures last week (as you could have seen in the Tavernelle photoshoot thread) but I don't think it's spontaneous at all. I mean, I understand that royals want their privacy (especially for their kids) and organize big photoshoots like these, but it's always the same. A prince and princess with their two beautiful daughters, posing for some happy pictures. It's not that I'm dissatisfied with these photoshoots (not at all) but I really loved seeing the pics of Christian which where taken by Frederik and Mary themselves and gave us a look in their daily lives. Does that mean I want to see how ordinary they really are? No, not at all. I just see a happy Christian who isn't distracted by tuns of photographers and I think that's lovely. I'm happy his parents chose to share these cute pics with us! Just my 2 cents of course. :)

For the rest I just want to hug the little one too, as Danielle said. He's just so cute!

You make a great point here Maxie, I really do have to agree with you. It would be nice if we could get some of both - perhaps official photo shoots along with the occasional release of more private pictures, taken by the parents or any other family member. That would be very nice, and it would certainly give us a lot of naturalness and spontaneity, and less posing.
