After having made the mistake of nodding at the wrong places a number of times, the experienced husband moves on to the next step: Grunting at regular intervals, and after a while he will from time to time come up with a non-committing thoughtful expression on his face.
The really experienced husband go one step further: When his wife is finally done talking, he nods and says: "I'm glad we had this conversation". And that is one of the keys to a happy marriage.
Frederik will get there eventually.
Your analysis is quite right and makes me laugh !

Does anyone know about the beautiful blankets that the twins were wrapped in? I'd love to know the back story about that!

There hasn´t been a word in the danish media AFAIK. But my guess is that one of them is the one the CPC used for both Prince Chrisitan and Princess Isabella and the other one is brought to DK by Aunt Jane. But IDK

I don't understand a word of Danish so I had to just go by their body language, it didn't seem like it was an issue to me.

Thank you everyone for your kind explanations.
That is why youtube is the last place I will take anyone seriously. Almost a year ago I got duped by certain members of a 'forum' informing me of a site supporting our Mary only to find myself really at a ridiculous excuse of a forum upon looking through it.
I could understand their need to 'falsely' advertise such a pathetic site though. That place was not only starved for attention due to its lacklustre activities but those few who do remain are a rather unfortunate and depressed bunch I tell ya!

I don't understand Danish either but even I can see that Mary's intention was not even close to whatever that person said on youtube.

Does anyone know if CP couple from Norway and Netherlands sent out messages like the CP Victoria did? You would think so given how close they all seem to be.

Well the Norwegian couple are off travelling, so they might have done it privately.

We all have differing opinions Yekaterina, mine differs from yours.
Calling her an old clown was IMO harsh on a person who has just given birth to twins and lives the life of a princess.

Well said who actually steps out of hospital looking like a supermodel anyway?

ETA: In some photos, Mary's makeup looks fine, in others it looks too heavy. I think the angle and lighting can change a person's appearance and makes them look softer or more harsh. Even the type of makeup can have an impact on the lighting.

CP Mary is a very kind person.

She is very much involved in the fight against bullying between children. A lot of schools in Denmark has been benefitting from these initiatives.

CP Mary has also initiated help to women suffering from domestic violence.

Exactly. The woman just had twins and is probably sleep deprived so you weren't going to see the next top model walking out of there!

Timidly,I would like to say, that IMHO CP Frederik is looking now even more handsome and characteristically beautiful than before.

Oh that I can definitely agree on.

What is it with men in their late 30s early 40s? Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Paul Walker even overrated Brad Pitt (sorry ladies) is looking the best I've ever seen him. Most of them look even better with the shaggy beards! Well, it did kind of help that the first three are just the sexiest men ever!

His beautiful wife and kids have certainly added an extra element of 'beauty' to him. This period in his life seems to satisfy him immensely. It suits him so well.

Ekstra Bladet - Mary: Jeg er meget bevget

It seems that Mary becomes quite emotional while speaking during the press conference outside the hospital. You can see how she struggled to hold her tears back

And I can now see better how she was explaining the way the babies interact with each other. It's amazing how different camera angles can tell two different stories.

While the little princess is more "give me a little space" and that is why CPss Mary is touching CP Frederik.
CPss Mary is acting as if she was the little princess and CP Frederik the little prince

Super! I was planning on posting a request for a Danish speaker to kindly translate Mary's & Frederik's remarks during the exchange in question. Thanks for doing that, FasterB. And this video is certainly better than the other one on YouTube. Thanks!

I actually think that the blankets they were wrapped in were matching, so maybe the one that was used for Christian and Isabella wasn't used this time? That would make sense to me, rather then have one baby miss out all together, the twins had new ones that matched for them only.

Been a busy few days here, so only now posting...

They are too adorable and I love the one picture of the lil Princess "playing" Peek!!

Would love to know more about the shawls/blankets the twins were wrapped. I knit *and* crochet both as a hobby and for charity. One of the charities I help w/my crafting are items for our local Neo Natal Unit and I'd love a pattern of them if one is available. They're gorgeous!!

Mary and Frederick must be so happy to have everyone at home again. Can't wait for the first official pictures of the entire family, but especially to see Christian and Isabella w/their new brother and sister.

What a lovely family and so happy for them. :o)

Maybe there were two original blankets. Do you think it's possible that Christian had one and Isabella an identical, but different one? That way there are alread two seperate ones for the twins to use. I don't know. It's a theory.

I think her command of the Danish language is pretty near perfect. How she ever learnt it so quickly in the first place is beyond me. I just wonder if Christian and Isabella know both Danish and English. Thanks for the video clips - they were lovely

I remember when Prince William was born, the pattern for the shawl was put in a magazine - if my memory serves me right ! Maybe we could suggest it for the twins' shawls
