So hard to believe they’re seven! Josephine reminds me more of Mary’s sisters than Mary herself but she favours the Donaldson side of the family, for sure. I don’t know who Vincent looks like but he’s a stunning child. If adolescence treats him kindly he’s going to be a very handsome man. Much more importantly they both seem like very sweet natured, happy children from what we’ve seen of them so far.

What lovely photos!
Love the "bonus" photos that Mary took of them during their recent Australian vacation.

Which color are their eyes exactly? In the birthday photos it seems to me Vincent and Josephine have brown eyes. I remember their eyes as blue like Christian and Isabella.

They look deep blue to me. A shade darker than Frederik's eyes.

Vincent has blue eyes for sure. Josephine's always looked a bit green to me. Maybe a greenish blue?

Wow, time flies! I can't believe Josephine and Vincent are seven already. Their new photo is very sweet.

Tomorrow, 21st April, Isabella can celebrates her 11th birthday.

While we wait for new birthday pictures.

Here a large gallery with pictures from Bellas life in chronological order.

"While we are waiting for tomorrow's new birthday photo ....

Tomorrow, April 21, 2018, Denmark's Princess Isabella turns 11 years old. On April 21, 2007, Denmark is standing still when Crown Princess Mary gives Crown Prince Frederik a daughter and Denmark their first princess born in 61 years. A little girl was born at 16.02 and weighed 3350 grams and measured 50 centimeters...

Isabella is growing up fast, still looks so much like her father. I’m sure Mary is happy her daughter has inherited this particular hobby!

Beautiful photos of Isabella. She seems to have inherited the royal love for horses - and I always like how Mary often takes her children's birthday photos; it adds to a more personal touch.

Beautiful lovely photos. Love that they included a favorite hobby of hers. In the first two photos she looks especially like Frederik. Lovely girl.

Details from an article in Billed Bladet #17, 2018.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

BB most have posted someone at Amalienborg all day. Poor sod!

Anyway, in the early forenoon Isabella and Mary were seen driving from Amalienborg to an unknown destination.
Late in the afternoon the whole family returned on foot, strolling across Amalienborg Square, dressed casually.
By 19.00 in the evening a couple of friends with their children had arrived, presumably in order to celebrate Isabella.

- So they did not celebrate her birthday at Trend as I thought they would.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #18, 2018.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Those interested in tennis may know that Caroline Wozniacki recently won her first grand slam and for that she has been celebrated here in DK last week.
That included a friendly match between Wozniacki and her colleague, Venus William. An event that drew quite a crowd!

Among those who went to see the match was Isabella, who was accompanied by the very close friend of Frederik, Christian von Buchwald, who played tennis with Frederik when he was in his teens and early adulthood.
Present were also Christian von Buchwald's two daughters, Ida and Anna, for whom Frederik is a very dear honorary uncle. They are now adults, and as such took good care of Isabella who is a big tennis-fan.

- You can see the scans of this article in the DRF general news thread.

Christian Von Buchwald is Isabella's godfather, Frederik is godfather to one of his daughters and his wife Elisabeth works for the DRF. This couple is very close to Frederik and Mary.

Indeed. But as we learned in the most recent chapter of the Frederik portrait book, Frederik and Christian's close friendship go way back before Mary. - Frederik was as close to being a member of the Buchwald family as he could become.

Okay, we have over time gotten to know M&F's children well enough to have a good idea of their character and lives.
So I'll start out with my observations.

Christian:
An archetypical older brother. Sensible, loving and caring. Has a fine self confidence. Is comfortable in the public eye and with talking to strangers including journalists.
Is interested in sports. He sails.
He has inherited his dad's intense interest in music.
He appears to have a strong will, or stubborn if you prefer. He is very willing to learn, but not that eager to listen once he believes he master something.
He clearly has been schooled in what you tell and don't tell journalists.

Isabella:
After having been something of a showgirl, she is now settled down as the sensible and caring older sister.
She dances, and rides horses and is seemingly an accomplished rider.
She appears to have inherited her dad's speech-pattern. In the sense that she speaks in images.

Vincent:
The most shy of the children. Don't mind public attention as long as it's not too much. Is very fond of his mother.
Seems to be an observer.
He is bright! From very early on he seems to have a very good sense of sentence structures and the language. He corrected Josephine's grammatical mistakes both at the gala-concert but also on their first day in school.
Leaves the impression of being a kind and loving boy.
May have inherited his dad's sensitive personality.
Is a sore loser. - So he also has a competitive mind.

Josephine:
Judging from her posture when photographed, she dances. Most likely ballet.
She also seems fond of riding. - Whether that is a wish to be like her older sister remains to be seen.
A fun-loving very extrovert girl, who clearly likes to perform in front of an audience.
