Glad to see so many new faces here! Yes the baby is adorable!

In case you missed it, he's most likely going to be named Christian because the Danish kings alternate between Frederik and Christian. Christian IX, the first king of the present family had a son Frederik VIII. Fred's son was Christian X and Christian X's son was Frederik IX. The present Queen Margrethe is the eldest daughter of that Frederik IX. When she gave birth to Crown Prince Frederik she asked her father if she could name her baby Frederik so that they could even up the Frederiks with the Christians. He said yes so Crown Prince Frederik will reign as Frederik X. That's why we think his son will be named Christian and reign as Christian XI.

Blast, I shouldn't be awake at this hour...but I'll answer it anyways...or attempt to:

The Danish royal family has a tradition of naming their heirs Frederik or Christian (or at least as a middle name, i.e. Nikolai William Alexander FREDERIK and Felix Henrik Valdemar CHRISTIAN) as the traditional kingly names are Frederik and Christian. They usually alternate between King Frederik and Christian. And since Frederik will be King Frederik (hopefully), this baby should be Prince Christian. But I don't think he HAS to have Christian as a first name. It just very likely if not positively will be one of his middle names.

I saw this and I started to jump up and down. I couldn't contain myself. It was so cool that they showed them.

In Holland those offers for a municipal healthcare check of a baby are obligatory. Wonder what Alexander and Maxima did?

"I don't think germs is an issue with dogs and cats although it can be with other humans. If a dog gets a cold, a baby can't catch it because its not the human version of the disease. But coming into contact with a human with a cold provides a real risk that the baby could come down with the cold."

I was thinking more of the fur and dirt on it. But then I'm sure a Royal dog will be kept in the best condition, so itprobably won't be a problem.
Thanks to everybody who provided an explanation for the naming of the baby.

There didn't seem to be a visit from Joachim or Alexandra, Nikolai or Felix. Benedikte was in Brazil, but what about her children visiting their cousin and his newborn son?
In this week's edition of Billedbladet, it was said that Alexandra, Felix and Nikolai are currently on vacation in Greece, in a house owned by her family, but that Joachim called her about the birth. They're planning on visiting as soon as they get home from vacation. (It's fall vacation in Denmark at the moment.)

I wonder if all Royal babies get these gifts?

Companies are bending over backwards to send presents to the newborn prince:

thats amazing, it would be better if these companies give this sort of stuff to the poverty stricken people in 3rd world countries rather than a wealthy prince. NOt that Prince Christian(?) doesnt deserve the best!

Im just saying it would be nice if these companies could 'bend over backwards' giving these things to people who need it is all.

I feel the same; it´s just such an imbalance, giving gifts to the prince, who doesn´t need them, and millions of poor children who could be made so happy from a tiny gift.
Well, what Fred and Mary can do is to donate the toys to a children´s hospital or orphanage. That´s the least they can do.

That would be nice, even ideal. But they might think it would look rude if they give presents that they were presented with, to others. I think if these companies give under-priveldged people the presents, its a good way to celebrate the birth of the prince and lets everybody share in the the advantages. Afterall, isnt a monarchy about its people?

I heard that a lot of the gifts that they royal couple gets, they give to charity...of course not the 'official' gifts like the ones from the companies, but little gifts from you and me for example...I'm not sure how valid this is though!

That would probably be the most appropriate course of action not to mention the most compassionate.
After all do they really want their son to be a walking billboard for Mammas and Papas (or it's Danish equivalent).

I think it's crazy that so many of both of their families (Fred and Mary) haven't yet seen the baby. I know a lot of it probably has to do with the fact that their familes are spread across the globe but I'd imagine that when I have my first child, I will want everyone to come and see the new little bundle!
