I found an old interview from BT with the twin daughters of Count Christian: Camilla and Josephine. kvinder.bt.dk: Vi kan ikke være alene



Some salient points:
* They mention that they have problems being on their own, because they're so used to being two all the time. Their younger sister, Feodora, is much more independent than them.

* They slept in the same bed until they were 16, and were dressed alike by their mother.

* They live 5 km apart, see each other every day, and talk on the phone.

* They're still mistaken for each other by co-workers, or other friends.

The interview was connected to a series about being twins (hence, the content.

Count Ingolf is the man who would have been king today if the Danish constitution hadn't been changed in 1953. He's the oldest son of Prince Knud of Denmark, the younger brother of King Frederik IX. He receives money from the Danish state as a compensation of 1,3 million Danish kroner (for the loss of the kingdom ), and has various patronages: Landsgardeforeningen, Genforenings-og Grænsemuseet, Sydslesvigsk Udvalg, Julemærkemarchen, Scouts in Southern Schleswig, Dansk Piano samling… He owns Egeland farm, close by Vejle.

Count Christian is his younger brother. Feodora, Camilla and Josephine are his daughters.

Both Ingolf and Christian married commoners, and therefore lost their place in the succession to the Danish throne, and the title Prince of Denmark.

Their older sister Princess Elisabeth hasn't married (commoner or otherwise), and thusly is still in line to the Danish throne, as the last person on the list.

I am sad to see him so ill. He was not at Prince Henrik's christening altough his older brother Ingolf and his wife were there, so I wonder at which celebration this picture of Noblesse et Royautés was taken ?

If the constitution had not been changed, who would have been the heir to the Danish throne today since (hypothetical) His Majesty King Ingolf has no children with Her Majesty Queen Susie or his late Queen.

I do not know; I believe that I read somewhere that one of the reasons that Count Ingolf was bypassed was due to his inability to have children. There were others, not to pleasant to mention. I believe that Ingolf, Elisabeth and Christians parents were first cousins.

Please correct me if I am wrong and elaborate if my memory serves me correctly. I can't recall exactly where I read it; probably on this board.

The only direct descendants from that family would then be the twin girls Camilla and Josephine and their younger sister Fedora - children of prince Ingolf's younger brother Christian. So they wouldn't have 'avoided' female succession even if they hadn't changed the constitution

You can see pictures of them here Billed-Bladet - Billeder: De tre komtesser af Rosenborg

The Rosenborg girls (especially the twins) has a special taste in clothes and in the christening picture they look quite funny, to put it mildly...

There must be some wedding photos, but I don't remember seeing any in the public domain. They married at a civil ceremony and it was all very discreet!

The first half I can´t answer, but the second one (which I highlighted) I can answer:
Just to make clear it was not King Frederik IX, who decided to change the law of succesion. It was the government and the people.
I´m sure Muhler can tell more
