Congratulations! That are really nice news!

(And i guessed wrong - i guessed two boys on January 7th.)

I believe the twins are born end of November or early in December. I also think they always give the date of 42 or 43 weeks of pregnancy in the official statement. Probably to reduce the stress through media to the mother.

When they tell January, then the real date is about the 31th December. So with 36 weeks pregnancy the twins might be born about 3rd December. When i'm right, she is now in her 28. week.

So in the end i was totally wrong.

Obviously they changed their system because they are twins and they usually aren't born in 40. week or even later.

Considering that Isabella was born on 21. April 2007 and pregnancy was announced 26. Oktober 2006; Christian was born 15. October 2005 and pregnancy was announced on 25. April 2005 (source for dates: Kongehuset - Aktuelt - Arkiv ). So there were 25 weeks and 2 days (Isabella) und 24 weeks 5 days (Christian) each between the announcement and the birth.
So I count 25 weeks to the announcement of the twins (06. August 2010).
06. August 2010 plus 25 weeks is 28. January 2011. I think, around 28. January the 40 weeks of pregnancy are over.

But as they are twins, i do not think it will take until 40. week. So my new guess for the birth is 07. January 2011.
But i stay with my name guessing:

Sophie Elizabeth Margrethe Victoria and William Frederik Andre Peter

Congratulations to the DRF! It is nice to see that the birth weights were very good for both the prince and princess. It is nice to that there are now two royal-born princesses in Denmark after skipping a generation.

Boy, ýour hubby is a typical man, huh?

YES, I cross my fingers for a pregnancy in the SRF rather sooner than later

This is absolutely the best news a boy and a girl!! Congratulations to the Crown Prince couple. Frederik did not look nervous during the press conference he looks like being almost an old hand at this baby business. Those red pants must be favourites of his.

Yes a span of 60 years between Anne Marie, the latest Danish princess before Isabella was born. Tha'ts quite a long time.
Of course the health of the babies is most important but I think everyone in Denmark was secretly hoping for at least one girl!

Here are some headlines:

"CP Frederik cut the umbilical cord"

"Mum is totally happy"; that must be QMII that the headline is referring to.
