I think her name will be:

Princess Arabella Ingrid Henrietta Margrethe :)
or
Princess Henrietta Ingrid Dagmar Elizabeth
or
Princess Matilda Ingrid Henrietta Margrethe

OOOOoooo...I just bursting with anticipation as to what her name will be...why do we have to wait so long???..until July/August...
Yes, Mary was born under a lucky star. She is certainly a credit to Denmark. Ah, the wonder of finding your TRUE love. It just makes everything happen perfectly.

Why are some people stating that Mary does everything perfect because she had a boy first to inherit the throne and now a girl second? In most of these European country's (didn't Denmark even get this male preference changed recently) there are equal rights that exist to the throne. It is a little disrespectful in my opinion to current reigning queens and anyone else that is a female and in line to inherit a throne.

By the way does anyone know of any specific time that has been reported for Mary and baby to go home? Or is it still up in the air on whether or not she will go home tomorrow? I just don't want to miss first pics of the new princess.

Congratulations with the new Princess.

I miss the decorum a bit. It is all too flumsy and clumsy to see how things are going with the newborn Princess. A Crown Prince answering questions in jeans? Modern and refreshing?

Call me oldfashioned, I prefer the press conference annex presentation in the Netherlands with a certain distance and decorum, with an impeccably dressed Prince showing his daughter in historic lace.

This is nice. But this could have been Freddy from three high instead of Denmark's future King.

If Mary and Fred had a girl first and now a boy she would be an heiress to the throne. It's not like in some countries where they have to have a boy.
As far as the current situation is - Denmark does not, per today, have equal rights for men and women when it comes to succession to the throne. Women have a right to the throne, but the law of 1953 states that brother goes before sister in the order. This means that if Mary had had a girl first, and then Christian had been born - Christian would still have been the heir to the throne. If Mary and Frederik had had twins yesterday, a boy and a girl, and even if the girl had been born first - the line to the throne would have been Christian, boy, girl. As it is - if Mary and Frederik have a third child, and it is a boy, he will go before his sister in the line to the throne. If I've understood it correctly.

And yes, the law was about to be changed around Christian's birth, but having the male heir, slowed it down a bit. I'm unsure as to the exact progress it has made to this date. There are all sorts of complications as it is tied into the constitution and whatnot.

CONGRATULATIONS
I just woke to the news that Denmark has a Princess.
Wow, she has arrived early, it's so exciting. Crown Prince Frederik looked so happy talking to the press. I can't wait to see the first pics.

Oh, I thought they'd changed that law! It doesn't matter right now, though, because Christian is still older.

Changing a law that is tied into the Danish constitution isn't something done quickly.

I don't know how far they've got, but when I checked Tronfølgeloven at Retsinfo (host to the Danish laws) earlier today, it was still the same from 1953, with brother before sister, that was listed as the current one.

Right now it doesn't matter much though.

Yeah I was just reading up on it. It seems to have stalled because of Christian's birth. There is no need to go any further with it, I'm sure is how most feel. But still I don't think it's this great and wonderous accomplishment to have a boy first and a complete failure if a girl was born first. Besides hasn't everyone been to biology and anatomy classes it is the male partner that determines the sex of the baby not the female.

Maybe Frederik wanted to seen as just another happy father. Not everything needs to be swaddled in pomp and circumstance. Yes this is the announcement of a royal birth, but at the end of the day....they are just Fred and Mary excited about the birth of their daughter. I find it quite refreshing, as you put it that Fred has no pretense about it.

I agree. Fred looked fine--jeans and all. Sheesh, he is enamored with his new baby, not worrying about what is the proper outfit to wear to greet the press.

It's just a matter of preference. Some like a more modern approach the "I'm just a regular guy" approach and others prefer things in a more "regal" manner. The regal manner being complete with the decorum and the tradition from generation to generation be carried out. Its just preference! That's what is great about having so many RF's to see. They all do things a little different.

Can someone translate for me. I just went to the Danish royal watchers site and on it has a congratulations message with this word: Tillykke!

What does it mean is this a new nickname for the baby?

Alright that's what I was thinking after I posted. But it was hopeful thinking on my part.

I can't wait to see Christian with his new sister!!

I think something along the lines of Arabella Ingrid Margrethe Elisabeth would be such a sweet name, so that Fred could honor his mother and grandmother, and maybe they could have Queen Elizabeth be godmother since the baby was born on her birthday.
