So I am guessing NO NUMBER FIVE for Joachim since he has his little girl now...I am happier for Joachim than anything else...And happy for Marie that she has her 'pigeon pair'...So sweet! And I like girls names better than boys names anyway...so let the 3 months of speculation about HER name begin

It took about 4,5 hours. Not that quick.

TV2 says that we may expect the Regent Couple to drop by late in the afternoon, early in the evening.

It is more questionable whether we will actually see M&F, as they may sneak in and out of the hospital through corridors underground.

if our Marie and little Marie are fine I think she may leave the hospital during the weekend.
(In the meantime you can start coming up with temporary names until the christening ).

I thought 4,5 hours was quick... Of course there are labours that take less time but I'd say that is fairly quick.

Were there some complications as Joachim seemed to hint?

The Danish media say that the new princess is more or less the same size as her older brother was at his birth. Marie is fairly petite so the weight seems appropriate.

...and less than 5 hours' labour - that is extremely fast!

Nyfødt prinsesse fejres med 21 kanonskud klokken 12 - Politiken.dk

Since a Princess has been born salutes will be fired at noon from Kronborg and the Naval battery Sixtus. (Located next to where the Flag of the Realm fly).
21 shots will be fired in total from each battery.

The weather is fine and frost-clear today so that should provide some great footage of the fortress of Kronborg. The seventeen canons there are from 1766-1769. And they are the oldest canons in the world regularly being used.

If Joachim hasn't already done it by now, he will very shortly write a letter to QMII, informing Her Majesty that a Princess has been born.
That letter will be brought to the Queen later today.
Then it's official and the Danish embassies can inform the governments in foreign countries that a new heir in the Line of Succession has been born. - In case anything should contemplate a marriage alliance....

ADDED: This also means that Dannebrog will fly from all official buildings from noon today, until sunset.




The maternity team has spoken to the press: Fødselsteam: Marie er dygtig til at føde - dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland

Leading midwife, Birgitte Hillerup said: "Marie is good at giving birth", she added that the team had been on stand-by for a few days.

Doctor Morten Hedegaard said: "It was a very fine birth. It progressed quickly from when the patient arrived between 03.00-04.00 this night and until the birth. And it's a really fine Princess. Prince Joachim handled it well, he was a moral support and a practical support as well".

He added that Marie had an epidural.
"The newborn Princess is very beautiful. For the first half an hour she was wide awake and (she) lay and looked around with big eyes. But she was comfortable in the arms of the mother".

The midwife cannot say anything about when our Marie and petite Marie will leave the hospital.

I do remember with little Henrik, F and M answered questions from the press when they visited Marie in hospital. Maybe we will see them this time too??

Lille fille? Petit pigen? No such obvious temporary name choices for today as then. It is Marguerite Durand's birthday though, but... Maybe it's just Lillepigen again.

Yay! A new princess!! Congratulations!!

She was only at the hospital 4.5 hours before the baby was born. Who knows how long she labored at home. Not all women go to the hospital at the first contraction.

I know I didn't. I stayed in my comfortable home until it became too much too bear at home and then I went to the hospital.

Or mini-Marie perhaps? I think I remember Isabella being referred to as 'mini-Mary' before her christening a few times...
