Well, that's interesting You couldn't help but notice how smitten these two are with each other.

Hopefully, the christening shall take place between 24th of May and the 11 June 2012.



I wonder if it shall be held at Mogeltonder Kirke and whether Pss Marie's other brothers Grandet and Cavaillier, Britt Siesbye, Pss Tatiana, Pss Alexia, Pss Claire, Pss Martha-Louise, Pss Charlene, Pss Theodora, Pss Alexandra, Carina Axelsson, Pss Nathalie, Prince Nikolaos, Prince Phillipos, Pss Elena, Pss Letizia, Prince Felipe, CPss Maxima, Pss Madeleine, CPss Mathilde, CPss Mette-Marit, CP Willem-Alexander, Pss Astrid, CPss Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl-Phillip and or shall be the godparents to the new Princess.

It shall be great when her names are entered into the Danish Royal Succession book after her christening perhaps before the Danish Royal family has their summer holidays at chateau Cahors-Caix(cayx) & their August summer holiday at Grasten slot in Jylland.



She was born 12 days before her mother's birthday and 11 days before her paternal aunt's birthday.

I wouldn't wonder if French was her first foreign language at school, so she probably had a basic education from which to work on (holidays in Cayx, friendship with Mathilde of Belgium, Marie as a sister-in-law, her father-in-law - a lot of possibilities to use French if she wanted).

Are you on holiday in that period?

I think you can be sure the christening will take place in Møgeltønder.

As for the protocol. let's go through that one again.

Okay, Piaf was born. (Joachim naturally phoned his parents) Joachim sat down and wrote a letter to Her Majesty informing her that a new Princess has been born.
That letter is hand delivered to QMII, after which the system is officially notified. I.e. the government and Parliament.

After the Christening, (which beforehand was considered the most important event, rather than the actual birth and as such took place a few days later) the Foreign Minister will at some point write the names into a protocol from 1760.
Then Piaf is officially considered the tenth in the line of succession.
When that is done the Danish embassies will inform the local foreign ministries, telling them that there is a new living Christian Princess in Denmark (in case anyone will consider a betrothal or has a claim for the Danish throne). That is taken ad notam.

I agree and am quite sure she wanted, as French is an important language in the de Montpezat family, to be sure! The Prince Consort has said that the Crown Prince will inherit Cayx so that it would surprise me very much if the Crown Princess were not already able to hold her own in French.

I think the christening will take place in Mogeltonder, where the Princes Felix and Henrik got christened and Marie and Joachim married.

I find it rather odd that Frederik gets the Chateau, as he will not have (when King) all that much extra time to run this winery/estate (after all it is a very time consuming business) and I believe (I may of course be wrong) that Mary herself has said she doesn/t speak or understand French.

But I also read somewhere that Mary hopes she will learn the language (French) one day...but it is probably way down on her list of priorities at the moment

I think they give Caix to Frederik so he will own something in his own name (perhaps in a worst case scenario?).
Joachim owns Schackenborg, and when the castle was signed over to the then child Joachim, there were lots of rumours that it cost the regent couple a tidy sum of money to get it into its present state. Giving Caix to Frederik may sort of equal that score - even if Frederik will have to employ a daily manager.

But there is also Marselisborg. Is it already known whi will inherit it?.

It says in the link here, that it has been stipulated that Marselisborg should belong to the regent at any time (Århusportalen har alt om Århus : aarhusportalen.dk).

Sounds as if so even though Frederik will in time gain the right to use it, it will probably not become his personal property in the way that Caix would be. I'm not sure if that's the correct interpretation.

The story about the little new Princess in the DRF continues this week.
So this will be covered in two posts.

First some updates and trivia and a bit about what other family members told the press at Rigshospitalet.
The second post will be a transcript over what was said when M&J left the hospital.

Both parents of our Marie are staying at Amalienborg these days.
Mormor (*) Francoise Grassot and morfar Alain Cavallier are there for a few days more to back up their daughter.
Bette Henrik is attending the same kindergarten as Isabella, so that he doesn't get bored and can maintain contact with and interact with other children his age.
And in a couple of weeks or so, once it has been established there are no problems with the child and parents and child have settled in some sort of routine they will move back to Schackenborg.

It was observed that Joachim popped a bottle of champagne or two when the birth was celebrated in the rooms at Righospitalet a princess cake was eaten.
The maternity team was treated to absolute first class smørrebrød/smorgasboard from Ida Davidsen along with a cake with pink icing.

Mary and Frederik were among the guests to visit our Marie and her newborn girl.

Q: How is Princess Marie?
Mary: "She's excellent".

Q: Who does the little one resemble?
Mary: "She's adorable, really adorable, but who she resembles is a bit difficult to say right now".

Q: Were you allowed to hold her?
Mary: "No, we just looked. She was sleeping".

Q: Did you bring a present for the little one?
Mary: "Yes a little girlie-present".

Q: Crown Prince Frederik the score is now 4-4, whill you take the lead again?
Frederik: (Laughing) "Good question, ask the mother".
Mary: "Well, it's an obvious question, but I can't answer that. But it was good to be back and meet the team who also looked after us a year ago".

Q: So you were perhaps inspired?
Mary: (Laughing) "Nooo, I don't know, but it stirred happy memories".

Q: Were the borthers of the little Princess also up there?
"Yes, they were and they were very happy about their little sister. They sure were. They think it's exciting".

M&F stayed for 45 minuttes.
On the way out Mary said hello to fifteen year old Jannick, sitting in a wheelchair. Jannicj is suffering from water on the brain and he is about to undergo surgery number 150 (repeat 150). he said afterwards: "I've always dreamed about meeting Crown Princess Mary and now it happened. It's the best day of my life".

Marie's parents also went to the hospital. Francoice Grassot holding bette Henrik's hand. Henrik speaks Danish and French as best as he can. - And yes, he can talk! Oh, yes!

In order for the birth of a younger sibling to be a positive experience for Henrik, he was presented with gifts at the hospital. Two of them from his older half-brothers and one from his little sister.

Q: "Did Prince Henrik like his little sister?
Joachim: "Yes, he thought she is very neat/nice and sweet. And he did also get a lot of presents".
At this point bette Henrik took over: "I've had a lot of presents! - I've also had presents from Nikolai and Felix". (**)

Q: Have you had presents? What did you get?
Henrik: "Cars! Many cars".
Joachim (laughing): "Yes, we have our pockets full".

Q: Is she sweet, your little sister?
henrik: "Yes...".

Q: Was it a surprise that it was a girl?
Francoise: "Yes, it was a lovely surprise and I'm very, very happy".

Q: Have you known long that it would be a girl?
Francoise: "No, not at all. It was a secret".

Q: Was it also kept a secret from you?
Francoise: "Yes, we knew nothing, so it was a lovely surprise. And I'm happy".

Q: Is it lovely with a little boy and a girl?
Francoise: "Yes, it Can't be any better ".

Mormor and morfar visited Marie for four hours and when they returned to the foyer, the journalists were still around.

Q: How was it to see the little Princess?
Francoise: "It was wonderful"!

Q: Whom does she resemble?
Francoise: "Her brother Henrik".

Q: How long will you be staying in Denmark?
Francoise: "For ten days".

Q: And how is Marie?
Alain: "She's in fine shape".

Q: Have you held the little one in your arms?
Francoise: "Yes, of course".

The Regent Couple also visited Marie for half an hour and afterwards a delighted QMII said: "She's a really sweet little girl".

Q: Are you glad it was a little Princess?
QMII: "I certainly am" (As in: You bet)!
PH: "But it's always nice to recieve a new member of the family".

(*) DK lesson:
Mormor = maternal grandmother. Mor is pronounced in Jutlandic Danish like the English word "more", just shorter and sharper and without the drawn out e-ending. So you just say "moremore".
The Copenhagener way to pronounce mormor is just like saying the English word "moor" As bog or marsh So you just say "moormoor"

Morfar = maternal grandfather. Far is pronounced just like the English word "far" as in far away. So morfar is "morefar" or "moorfar".
See, Danish is easy and now you can speak dialect too.

(**) I'm not sure Henrik actually spoke that fluent, but this is at least what he meant.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
