And the twins are not Joachims family? Maybe not his immediate family, but I don't see why that would be a problem if Frederik asks him if he could borrow one of the gowns for his son/daughter. Personally I wouldn't have a problem if my sister/brother would ask me if something like that would happen to us.


Anyway, I quite like the idea of a christening gown from Marys family. The son would get the one from daddys family while the daughter would get the one from mummys family.


Also, I was thinking why don't they use both of Joachims kids gowns for the twins, so later no-one of them feels bad that he/she wasn't christened in the old family gown. But then I saw the gowns and saw that they are very different from each other so that option may not even be an option.


And to be honest, if Joachim could get new christening gowns for his sons, why can't Frederik have new ones for his twins? It could be possible. Mybe one with a very light touch of blue and one the same in pink so that everyone will know which twin is the boy and which one is the girl.

That is so very surprising to me.

I suppose when you are at a private hospital you can order from the "menu" so to speak, as long it is safe for the patient.

Being no expert I'm convinced that no doctor would ever perform these operations in combination, in Denmark. And never at a public hospital where CP Mary is.

But very interesting about these differences

I promise I won't comment on this topic any further when it bothers you

Of course the twins are Prince Joahimīs family too, but as you said theyīre not his immediate family. And therefor, in this special family, I canīt see the CPC borrowing one the gowns from Schackenborg. If they borrows the one that was made for Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix then the press will made up stories that they (the cpc) favores Countess Alexandra. If they borrow the one made for Prince Henrik, then the stories will be: Why didnīt they borrow the one made for the oldest sons of Prince Joachim? Donīt they like them?

So, you see, I canīt see it happen. I can better imagine either a gown from CPss Maryīs family or one, perhaps two, new gowns

That's something that I really hate. Why does there always have to be a secret meaning behind it? Why can't it just mean that Frederik needs a second gown and he asks for the one that's more similar to the traditional one? This doesn't have something to do with which woman he prefers. But that's the press for you.

well the twins' christening will turn out as a very interesting event, with many adjustment to be made to the usual protocol. E.g.: the mother is usually holding the baby and saying his/her name, do you reckon Mary will be holding a child and saying his/her name and Frederik will do the same with the other one, or will the twin to be christened be passed to Mary who will say both names according th the tradition while Frederik holds the other twin?
btw, i'd love the idea of two new gowns with a bit of blue and pink to distinguish the babies! and i definitely go for a blue suit (maybe electric blue? ) for frederik with a touch of pink maybe in his tie, and probably some lavander/lilla outfit for Mary with blue jewels, bag, shoes...?

It's not that it bothers me, I just can't give you any other answer other than the one I've already provided and we'd only end up going around and around in circles which is pointless

I only touched on it briefly as I'd imagine the twins to be the last of the children for Mary and Frederik and that if she were to have had a c section, that maybe it would have been considered. That was all.

But, we know she gave birth naturally and that is that

And as you state, it's a public hospital (not that that really matters as a private surgeon can perform elective surgery at a public hospital, just at a higher cost generally) and any such operation would be unlikley to be performed there generally. You are more knowledgeable about the workings of the Danish health system than I.

I'm sure within 5 months Mary will be back to her pre pregnancy weight, given her dedication to nutrition and exercise.

Thank you Marika86. I am looking forward to see the pictures.

Oh how I wished the Danish royal family would have the same tradition as the Dutch royals have after the birth of a child. The father shows baby right after the birth to the press. The anticipation is just killing me

I never thought of this but you are right, eliz. There will be some changes regarding the usual christining protocoll for sure. It will be very interesting and exciting to see all.

It just came to my mind whether Mary will be able to join the British wedding with to babies to breast feed? I hope she will do but I can understand when she choses not so attend.

Itīs not sure that Prince Christian and Princess Isabella will visit today. They probably will, but nothing sure and nothing has been released.

I donīt think we will see them at the hospital. I think they will be taken in and out at another entrance :)

I read that Christian has a cold, so I think that it is not very probable that he will visit twins, but maybe he is no more ill.

And there is an increasingly number of firms who provide free fruit for the employes

Congratulations to The Danish Royal Family and The Donaldson family! What wonderful news for them all. So glad to hear that everything went smoothly and that Mary and the twins are doing well. I was hoping for a boy and a girl!

I think if the children visit today it will be private and not in front of the press. This is enough for them to take in without the eyes of the world on them.

But I remember that when Sofia of Spain was born, we saw Felipe bring Leonor to the Clinic to see her newborn sister.

Yes, but that was in Spain. You didnīt see CP Frederik bringing Prince Christian to Rigshospitalet when Princess Isabella was born. (IIRC)

Yes, she went two times
I was thinking about the same, I would like to see photos like those ones, so lovely.
But then I remembered that they took more time to take Leonor to the hospital, about 2/3 days after the birth. Perhaps is too soon yet, Mary needs some rest, and, though Iīm sure she would want to see her children, they arenīt so calm as adults and can annoy a bit.
