Interesting - so something has to be done to entitle you to succeed the throne? I thought it was automatic at birth. Is Denmark the only country like this?

Princes Nikolai and Felix did not accompany their mother, Countess Alexandra to London, where she recently travelled to attend a concert for the girl's choir that she serves as patron, but that the Countess has made up for this by starting to celebrate Christmas with the young princes. They apparently enjoy eating pancake balls and rice porridge during the month leading up to Christmas. They will decorate their house together, and light the Advent wreath, according to this article.

Nice photos of the family.
The boys have good relationships with their stepdad.

I wonder what pancake balls are? Is this a special Danish dish?

Also, what is rice porridge?

Billed Bladet has an article that says that little Prince Henrik looks like his mother's side of the family. It says that Joachim told reporters in HK that yes, the baby has Joachim's blue eyes, but otherwise, he takes after Marie.

Well, well, well, I'm surprised to learn that little Henrik has blue eyes after all.

Both Marie's mother and father have brown eyes, so this means that one or the other has a recessive gene which they passed to their daughter and it made the blue eyes possible !

He certainly will be a handsome little fellow.

I thought all babies had blue eyes until a certain age. I agree he is a cutie pie!

It is a common misconception that all Caucasian babies have blue eyes at birth. I am living proof that is not the case. My eyes were such dark brown when I was born they were almost black!

I don't think they all do, but it is very common, and the eyes nearly always change color. Henrik's eyes may be blue now but they may very well change as he gets older. (In order for his to stay blue, Marie has to have a recessive blue-eyed gene from a fairly recent ancestor to match with the blue-eyed gene Joachim has from Margrethe - possible but probably not the most likely since she's French and they tend to be a darker people.)

Yes, I agree totally, Maura. I wrote about this earlier when Marie was just pregnant I believe, but my comments were considered to scientific and were put on a back burner thread somewhere.

Now that we have the actual baby, and an article stating that the father says he is blue eyed, it is more relevant.

In any case, it takes a recessive gene from the mother and another recessive gene from the father to have a blue or light eyed child. Not rocket science, but basic high school biology.

Thank you for making the point.

Pancake balls are aebleskiver. They are made from a pancake like batter in a special aebleskiver pan. They are small balls and you turn them with a knitting needle to brown on all sides. They can be served with pancake syrup or honey, or especially delicious, with raspberry jam and powdered sugar.

I personally think that all babies with a recessive blue eyed gene will have blue eyes at birth. Even though there are rules and science with blue and brown eye colour, green and grey eye colours don't always comply. I know a couple who one has green and the other blue, and some of thir children have brown eyes, and they look very much like their father. Even though some said that PHenrik has such dark eyes at birth, they won't stay blue etc., I have experience from my 3 boys who had dark blue eyes for the first 6 weeks, and they all have blue eyes untill today!

I have green eyes. My parents both have brown eyes, but my paternal grandmother had green eyes as well as my maternal grandfather. So, I must have received both recessive genes. It's clear with Mendel's studies about dominant and recessive traits.

There isn't much information about Marie's family, so we don't know if there is someonw out there who could have provided the blue recessive gene. Since P Joachim is blue-eyed, he can only give blue recessive traits.

We'll have to wait and see about the little prince's eye colors.

Nothing was mentioned about the little "strawberry" mark on his ear, either. It was all revealed when pictures were taken of him in China.
