quick overall comments:
1. henrik's humor: i am sure it was just a "boutade" but, as far as i am concerned at least, it was a bad one, not towards the newborns, whose appearence is bound to change a lot during the first months and is therefore unjudgeable at the moment, but towards mary and frederik. come on, these are you son and you daughter in law we are talking about! i can imagine the two of them happy but tired and stressed out for the birth and maybe a bit worried about the future, and there you go and spit out a comment like that??? come on. if i were frederik, i would bear some grudge for some days...
2. joachim and frederik. in my opinion, at the moment frederik is closer to his nephews, especially the two older ones which were born before he had his own childern, than to his brother. the two brothers seemed to have grown bit apart, but i guess that this is unavoidable if we take into account how different the lives of a crown prince and a junior royal should be. to this extent, now that the twins are born Isabella will be luckier, bc christian will grow up to be the future crown prince but isabella will not be the only junior royal of her time, but will have the twins and especially her little sister.

The systems we don't know may seem the most unpalatable to us; after a couple of visits from the US president to Denmark, I was shocked by the costs of having him going/driving around. Just one morning when he (think it was Bush) used one of the motorways to Copenhagen, all the usual morning traffic was stopped as were the trains on certain routes so people couldn't get to work for a couple of hours. The loss of earning potential that day for the greater Copenhagen area was colossal!!!! And just because of the security measures for one single president
Our own royal family could probably exist for months on end for these costs alone! So, in the end I suppose it is all what you are not used to having which really stands out as extraordinary - if not extravagant/unnecessary.

Why was their relationship strained?

I have been busy dealing with floods at home the last couple of days and I come back to the forum to check on the progress of the crown prince couple and people are talking about money and tax payers. GET A LIFE . Yeez all this talk about bloody money has been flogged to death on other forum threads. Give it a rest will ya!! For goodness sake we should be rejoicing in the birth of two brand new babies. (...) Am looking forward to when Mary is allowed to leave the hospital with her precious bundles.

I am interested to see what Mary will wear exiting the hospital...Because I noticed with Christian's exit, her firstborn, she wore a shift dress, heavy frock coat, stockings and pumps...Something I wouldn't have even attempted myself...With Isabella's exit, she was a bit more casual, black pants and smock top...I don't know if climate had anything to do with it, Christian being born in winter and Isabella in milder spring/summer weather? So she will either be in fancy sweats and gym shoes, more casual than she was with Isabella or totally rugged up more than she was for Christian, because it does look very chilly in Copenhagen at the moment...Oh, how I love to focus on the trivialities :)

Me too She will definitely wear something warmer than when she took Isabella home at the end of April. I'm also curious to see if it shows that she is now breastfeeding two babies instead of one; have heard that for some women all excess pounds from the pregnancy are 'sucked away' rather quickly.

Mary has usually carried the new baby home wrapped in a shawl that used to belong to her mother but what now when she's got two babies? Does she have two shawls or is her sister bringing her a new one based on the traditional Shetland Islands pattern?

It would be nice if her sister brought one for the CPC to wrap one of the babies in. Perhaps their mother knitted one shawl for each child of her and John (4 all in all) and Jane are lending hers to the CPC

Oh I didn't know that. I have just checked the photos with Mary leaving the hospital right after she gave birth to Christian and Isabella. The shawl is beautiful. I like the idea of her sister bringing something traditional from her home country.

Thank you, but this link doesn't work for me.
Is there someplace else I can find it?

I'm just now reading that Prince Henrik called the twins ugly. I cannot believe he would say that to the media. If that's how he feels, fine, but don't say something so insensitive to the media. That's all I'm going to say about that.

I figured, but what I meant was, is there any news today on when they'll be released.

No, if they go home later today (wednesday) then we will be told so about two, perhaps three, hours before. IIRC then it was that way with both Prince Christian and Princess Isabella
