Twins, i've always wanted them to have twins.
This is wonderful news.
I can't wait for Jan 2011.

And we have the first odds: http://spn.dk/spilpoker/spil/article2143594.ece

Two princesses: 2.80

Two princes: 2.90 (Their guess is for two girls).

One each: 3.10

You can even bet on the weekday.

- My guess is that she will give birth no sooner than mid January. The court have a tendency, I think, to put the due date a bit later to avoid speculations.
So I'd say sometime between very late in December and mid January. - How about New Years Eve?

This is fantastic news! Twins no less.

What is the press saying in Denmark?

I wonder how this will affect Mary's duties as CP. Did she have fairly easy pregnancies with Christian and Isabella?

Not much. Apart from BT who managed to corner Prince Joachim, they really haven't got much more than the official announcement.
I guess they are busy rewriting their pregnancy stories. Twins, I think, came as a surprise.

But as Mary is expected to attend the navy review on Tuesday afternoon, it's a safe bet to say that there will be even more photographers than expected.

ADDED: The media have started to ask for comments from everyone who knows anything about the DRF. http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland/2010/08/06/153719.htm
In this case the historian Steffen Heiberg, who do know what he is talking about.
The poor man gave a fairly predictable answer: "They will be of interest to the press. - Especially if they are identical". What else was he to say?
However, he mentioned that Count Christian of Rosenborg, who is cousin (fætter) to Queen Margrethe has had twins. So there are twins close to the ruling line of the DRF.

Wow, thats a surprise. On some occasions they seem to struggle with the 2 kids they already have, very soon its going to be 4! I've never seen Mary as the most maternal person on earth so hats off to her decision to enlarge the brood. Yes, they have lots of staff, nannies etc but still 4 kids alone are a full time job.

Congrats to the family, for royal kids its great to have as many siblings as possible who share the "being different". And good luck for the pregnancy, can get difficult especially towards the end.

The logic of events of the past years now means that in a few weeks time the Spanish Court will announce that Letizia is pregant with twins too ...

I don't get how they struggle with the 2 kids they current have?

From what I have seen with Christian and Isabella sometimes they are well behaved and sometimes they are not. Just like other kids their age.

Some people think that they can't control Christian and Isabella.

I think that they are just normal children that do normal children things, in sometime not so normal events [media, cameras, public staring, etc.] Parents seem to be hands-on and correct when necessary, even in public. As it should be. All children act-up at one time or another and every parent has had to correct their child's behavior at that immediate time [if they are good parents]. Actually I think that Mary and Fred are doing a good job.
