The twins in the family (but not in the succession line), the daughters of Margrethes cousin, are called Camilla and Josephine of Rosenborg. Their father is the count or duke (not sure about the correct translation of "greve") of Rosenborg. They are identical (at least it looks that way ) and they were born in 1972, are very close and slept in the same bed until they were 16 according to this article:

Congratulations to the family. I thought this was a joke when I first read the news.
This must be so exciting for them. Many of us thought Mary was done having kids, particularly given her age. Twins make this an even bigger surprise.

Yes I've also read that the chances of multiple births increase with age.

But who cares? I'm happy for the family.
The court has stated absolutely clearly that the twins are "natural".
No artificial insemination.

They did so presumably to counter any rumours to the contrary.

Repeat: No artificial insemination.

I didnt think they were done as the couple have stressed before that they would like a big family. Also at the winter games 2010, the couple did not deny that they wanted more children when asked
I knew there would be one more bundle of joy but twins make it more surprising.

Oh yes, even the conservative and very serious newspaper Berlinske Tidende quotes Lene Balleby, the PR chief of the court.

Funny, my first thougt when i read "twins" was artificial insemination. That's because here in Portugal there's a lot of twins pregnancies on women whice use that kind of treatment, specially women up 35.

I´m not saying that´s the case of the crown prince couple. Like i said it was just a thougt.
you are not the only one that thought that, Myslef too, it is any twins in any of Fred or Mary's family before?
Congratulations to the couple , I hope a girls and a boy!!!!!

I am not sure about this , may be somebody knows better but in the 1500 is not so far ago, every 1 or 2 generarions is repeated, this is what i belived

Prince Henrik has also made a happy statement about the baby news
and becoming a grandfather for the 6th and 7th time . Reporters
from Billed-Bladet have met him at the port of Skagen, in the north of
Denmark.

Quote:
"Of course I am happy because I am always happy to have children around me'",
it sounded cheerfully from the prince, who almost seemed relieved that the happy
news of the Crown Prince couple expecting twins, had finally become official.

NO.WAY. I'm blown away by this news but so ecstatic. I really thought they were done. And TWINS, all the more exciting. We haven't had twin royals in a wee while I think.

If you read back a few pages information tells you that neither parent has twins running, not unless you look back until the 1500's.
