This is the address (taken from the official website of the DRF), If anyone will send congratulation notes or gifts:

HRH Crown Princess Mary and/or HRH Crown Prince Frederik
Amalienborg
Hofmarskallatet
Postboks 2143
DK1015 Copenhagen K
Denmark


If you want to deliver your letter or present personally, that is go to the door, and ring the bell: this is the address:

Amalienborg
Hofmarskallatet
Det Gule Palais
Amaliegade 18
Copenhagen/København
between 09.00 to 16.00 on all working days.

If you write a return mail address, you will usually get a thank-you note from
the court.

Thanks to Thor from CPMEMB for the above information

Afterall, isnt a monarchy about its people?

Since it is inevitable that thousands are going to send gifts to Denmark for the new little Prince, I think it would be wonderful if people would enclose a request that their gifts be donated to needy children on behalf of the little Prince. What do you all think? That way Fred and Mary wouldn't look rude and it would accomplish a lot! :)
Perhaps, rather than gifts, one could set up a humanitarian fund in the Prince's name, in favour of handicapped children, or something like that, and rather than presents on birthdays and such, encourage donations? A fund like that was set up around Märtha Louise's one year birthday, I think it was. Haakon and Mette-Marit also started a fund like that when they got married, and wished for donations to the fund rather than gifts. I don't know if that's a tradition in Denmark, but to me, that's gifts that would last longer and benefit more.

What wonderful news! Congrats to the new and proud parents!
I've been out of action for the last couple of weeks as my mother-in-law recently passed away....still coping with the grief and trying to move on with life.

Thought the best way to start back the normality of life was to check in here and what wonderful news!!

Three cheers to CP Mary and Frederik.

I agree: that would be a very nice gesture. I know lot of people (commoners at the utmost) who did it. When I and my sisters were born my parents made known to their friends that they didn't want presents but prefered that donations were made to some fund they had selected with the family.

Great, kind parents you´ve got! I think that´s wonderful.

I´ve done that with my Christmas presents ; I tell my friends to donate to my favourite charity, instead of getting a present.

It sounds like a nice gesture although everytime I hear of it I keep thinking of Joan Crawford who never let her children keep any of their Christmas or birthday presents because 'there was always someone less fortunate who would appreciate it more' The poor girls never got to keep anything and got paranoid and guilty about accepting any gifts from anyone when they became adults.

Yeah, I remember a film made about Joan Crawford, quite sad.
One scene showed, I think Joan's boyfriend of the time, give her daughter alot of gifts for her birthday, and her mother didn't want her to keep more than one of them, but the boyfriend convinced Joan to let her keep the teddy bear, and a necklace.
What a sad story! But, I'm sure in the Prince's case, he is going to have countless gifts, and so much love from his family, he won't feel too sad about not being able to keep all of them (at least when he's older, and realizes how many people gave him stuff).:)

Yeah...Joan Crawford is not the model of motherhood I expect anyone to follow.:p

Woah! Can I (a Joan-addict) step in there? There's no proof that Joan was abusive to the Children and although Christina Crawford claims she was mistreated - the other Crawford adoptees have said that Christina's book 'Mommie Dearest' is a gross exaggeration.

It is true however, that Joan would only allow the children to keep 1 gift. The rest went to the poor.

So, although I don't think Joan did mistreat them with wardrobe hardware, let's keep Mary away from wire-hangers anyway!

Yes I have very kind parents. I was brought up with the values of charity and attention toward the others.

There was only one other adopted child, a boy, but I don't remember his name.
And it wasn't just the children that claimed she was tough on people, her co-stars, and other Hollywood insiders said the same thing.
I can't remember who exactly, but I did see a documentary on it.

He was called Christopher. There were two other children - twins. A girl and a boy I believe. They were less publicised and went under ground at about 18. They didn't want the attention and rarely spoke to Joan. Now they have changed their names and never talk about their mother.

There were a few horror stories but Joan's housekeeper, Carol-Anne, always denied Christina's book had any truth to it.

Maybe this maid only seen the good side, or what she wanted to see?
Also, maybe she was getting money from the estate, and wanted to say only good things, as many loyal staff still receive money until their deaths if their boss is fond of them.

The Prince has been safely delivered and is now at home. Probably not much more to say until the christening. We could work our way through a long list of celebrity mothers,
or even (gasp!) close the thread.
