I think that they should still change the succession laws though it would not be out into effect with Mary and Fredrick's children (though, God forbid something were to happen and the heir becomes one of Mary and Fredrick's later children). They could change the laws now so that when it's time for Prince (insert name) gets married and has children of his own, that they wouldn't have to worry about succession and gender because the his first-born would automatically be heir. Save him the trouble later on in life.

Yes, I totally agree. They should change the succession laws.

Australian media reports are saying that Her Royal Highness is expected to leave hospital today with the baby prince. However, It has been decided that there shall be no public introduction for the baby for the next couple of days yet.

The child already has its name, but it isn't spoken outside the family because there is the belief that the devil might hear the name and corrupt/hurt the baby before it gets to be baptized.

I think it looks totally ridiculous that they ask how big the baby was and instead of saying the actual measurement, they show it with their hands like a fish. It is kind of silly. Is this a danish tradition?

A wee bit harsh. It's just a fun gesture for a proud new father to make. I think a lot of new daddys in every culture make this gesture to show people how big their new little one is.

If it was a Danish tradition, no doubt you have casued offene by such a remark.

Memory lane revisited when the Prince Consort did the same thing when Frederik (and Joachim?) were born. And the measurement had already been released in the press release posted on their Royal Highnesses official website. 51 cm.

Royal or not. Danish or not. That has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Thanks for the laugh; I needed it .

So many people are making fun of the Danish way. There is nothing wrong with tradition and superstition. I actually like waiting until the christining. It keeps people waiting and gives more reasons to celebrate. No reason to put your child at risk even if it is a superstition. I rather like it.

What a pathetic thing to say...

You may not agree with, or understand Danish traditions but to be so utterly tactless and ignorant are most repulsive traits for any indavidual to possess.

Most people don't consider their faith stupid. It's fine to not believe the same thing, but mocking other cultures and religious traditions is in bad form.

No its not just a Danish tradition. Our family did it too and we're Americans.

As far as not giving the name out until the christening, that used to be a lot more widespread across different cultures than it is now. People didn't traditionally pick out baby names until after a baby was born and the christenings were a lot sooner - like 3 days after birth or something. So the poor parents just had time to pick out a name before they ran off to the church to get the baby baptized. Before the advent of TV and the internet, it didn't matter that the name was not released until the christening. Most people would find out the name first by the christening regardless of whether the parents published it in advance. News was not instantaneous.

With the little prince, it seems to make less sense, he seems bound to be a Christian and the mass media has made his birth wide known within minutes of it happening. It seems a nice tradition, though; I hope they don't wait too long for the christening.

No pictures at the moment, and most likely not for a few days.

I think we need to calm ourselves here. Please consider this to be a warning, which will not be repeated.

pdas1201 placed a warning in this thread which has been ignored. I would hate to close this thread because a few members need to argue. Let's not spoil it for everyone. I have deleted all the nasty posts. Now, let's back off, take a deep breath and get back on track.

Our topic is A Prince is Born - October 15, 2005.

Thank you for your co-operation.
