article from Herald Sun :

Princess Mary's boy before camera
07dec05

THE future of Denmark will rest in these tiny hands one day. Proud parents Crown Prince Frederik and his Australian-born wife Princess Mary have released fresh pictures of their "little Kingaroo" as they finalise preparations for his christening next month.

No, no, no MII, that is the Australian media. The Danish media keeps it to den nye lille prins.

I have to admit, I like the sound of den nye lille prins a lot better. Sounds like a character from a Hans Christian Anderson story. Kingaroo just doesn't sound dignified enough for a future king. :p

I was sure it orginated in Denmark first ysbel, but I could be mistaken. Are there any Danish members who can confirm this?

Of course anything in a foreign tongue sounds more romantic than it does in english I mean, it is most darling but all den nye lille prins really means is 'the new little prince' . 'Kingaroo' is a play on words in regards to half 'den nye lille prins' heritage, just as he was affectionately 'dubbed by his maternal grandfather (originally from Scotland as you would of course know) the 'wee bairn'.

Personally, (placing the fact that I myself am an Australian and this is by no means a bias view whatsoever, that I assure you), I think the nickname (and that is all it is) is quite cute and meant with the utmost good will, humour and affection.

(Now in Australian mode :) ) I think it perfectly dignified to refer to the future sovereign of Denmark as the 'Kingaroo'. The Kangaroo is Australia's most identifiable & proud macropod (amongst all other wildlife native to this continent) and is not only the emblem of our National Airline (Qantas), but also takes pride of place as one of two native inhabitants (the other being the Emu) on the Commonwealth of Australia's Coat of Arms. And not forgetting the Boxing Kangaroo flag that holds great sentimental value to many, many Autralians...

Well, I think it's natural for a male baby to tak after his father mostly. I think if they have any daughter's, she/they will take after Mary mostly.

Although it's still early days yet, I think den lilleprinsen resembles his mother more than his father. The nose, the eyes, mouth etc.

I've never looked at the pictures side-by-side before, but having just done that, I think you're right on this one MII. Thw eyes, chin (sort of), and mouth of his mother. But, he seems to have the forehead, jawline and basic face structure of his dad. The nose is a bit of both IMO.

Yeah, I had nothing better to do than analyze some pics!

He does have her eyes and great alertness at such early age.

Lilleprinsen

I think he has his mum's nose, dad's mouth and dad and uncle Joachim's chin.
