Yes i thought the same thing, especially since Marie must have been up the whole night before she was born, missing a night of sleep.
Typically half the amount of time in labor for the second child (same amount of pain!) doesn't make it so tiring.

BTW the new baby has the birthdate of Edith Wharton, the famous 19th century American novelist

I mean, to view a seemingly perfect nuclear family from a distance is nice, but difficult to identify yourself with.
That is quite an interesting thought. Something you normally don't think about. Maybe in 20 years we'll be commenting on the wrong boyfriend, the DUI arrest and so on...I really hope not, but hey, it's possible and it's life!!! In fact, I think it's easier to make mistakes when you are given a lot from life.

I believe I read that there is an underground car park which can be secured for the Royals and they take the lift then into the main hall of the hospital. But Mühler surely knows better!

Joachim doesn't get an escort, so he will just drive to and from the hospital like any other.
M&F and the Regent Couple are as always escorted by PET but they will obey the traffic rules like everybody else. - There is no security reason why they shouldn't and they don't have to adhere to a schedule and they are not on the job, requiring them to arrive in style and on time.

A few rooms were prepared in advance (just as with Mary) for our Marie. But she can after all only give birth in one of them, so when she arrived she was wheeled into one room, gave birth, and was afterwards wheeled into an adjescent room. So right now she is occupying two rooms at the ward. One for sleeping and breastfeeding and what not. The other as a kind of interrim living room. PET is located in a room right across the corridor with the hospital's own security looking after the doors and elevators. - It's really very low-key.

Contrary to some stories, neither Mary nor Marie giving birth has led to half the ward being sealed off. That has been repeatedly dismissed by the hospital itself.

ADDED: Just to clarify the above.
There were stories when Mary gave birth to the twins that several rooms had been reserved for her in advance. That is incorrect.
A number of delivery rooms were preselected in advance, presumably at the end of a corridor to ensure safety and privacy. Let's call the rooms A, B, C, D, and E. With say room C as first choice. When Mary arrived she was wheeled into room C. Gave birth and then she was wheeled into pink room as it is called, where she stayed for rest of the time. In reality she occupied two rooms; a bedroom and a kind of living room.
Had there been complications or if she needed a C-section, she (and Marie) would have been wheeled into a special theatre with more advanced and specialist equipment. Just like any other patient.

Usually it is a 3 day stay. Marie stayed 3 days when Henrik was born. So I would say she would leave tomorrow (Friday) after lunch or in the afternoon.

The stork has landed in front of Schackenborg. Billed-Bladet - Kongelig prinsesse-fødsel - Storken er på plads
That is, in front of the copy of Schackenborg at Legoland.

Summary of a number of articles in Billed Bladet #04, 2012.
Mainly written by Trine Larsen.

A visitor told our reporter that the little new Piaf has a fine olive skin colour/hue (a la Marie), she's very darkhaired with dark eyes.

The midwife, Birgitte Illerup, told that the Princess scored 10 on the Apgar scale. She screamed nicely but settled down quickly.

On the night between Monday and Tuesady the contractions intensified and Marie and Joachim alerted the maternity team and drove to Rigshospitalet. Here the water broke at some point and the birth started in earnest. A little more than four hours later, at 08.27 Marie gave birth.
The article more than hints that it was a streneous birth. But the birth itself was normal for a second timer.
The maternity team has been ready for a few days, because Marie gave birth before her due time the first time and that was also the case this time, explained the midwife.

There were as you know also visitors.

Joachim recieved his parents at the main entrance of the hospital at 17.35. QMII exclaimed: "Hi. Well done". (*) PH said: "Congratulations, it was fantastic", in French.

But Piaf's older brothers came visiting as well. Bette Henrik preferred to stay on his father's arm. - Safer to face the press that way, I guess. But as you know he thinks nothing of it today.
Felix said: "I sure lokk very much forward to seeing her"
Nikolai told the press: "I was told at five this morning".
Q: Did your dad call you?
Nikolai: "No, I got a text message".
Nikolai carried the present, which was wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. (**)

- I'll post something about what Joachim actually said to the press later.

(*) Actually she said: "Godt gået" = a very youthful expression meaning well done. - Like all grandmothers she seems to be picking up what her grandchildren/sons are saying.
Mrs. Muhler and I almost suffocated in our attempt not to laugh when my mother-in-law a couple of years ago, in the middle of an explanation said: "Og så var der bare dømt øvhorn". Alas I don't know how to translate that but it was something she had clearly picked from our oldest.

(**) This is something women cannot comprehend, I know. To a man, including Joachim and his boys, wrapping paper will be torn off anyway, so why go out and buy something new, when you've got perfectly good wrapping paper left from Christmas?

Thanks, Fanvanmaxima

That is confirmed by the court.

Excerpt from article in Billed Bladet #04, 2012.
Min datter er så smuk - My daughter is so beautiful.
Written by trine Larsen.

Joachim stepped out of the elevator and faced the press: "What no one thought possible has happened; It was a daughter.
2.930 grammes and 49 centimetres. And she is beautiful! It's to early to say whom she resembles but in me saying she's beautiful, it has to be the mother she resembles. (*)
She is healthy and velskabt (= the right number of arms, heads, toes and legs) and it's also what we have put most emphasis on. That's what is the most important thing for us....".

Q: How is mother and daughter?
J: "Mother and daughter are of course tired so that's why the now have to rest, but they are fine".

Q: How long have you known it would be a little girl?
J: "Long enough".

Q: Was it a hard birth?
J: "I think if you ask... that is, if a child aged one or two hours could answer, it would say it was a very hard birth. And if you ask a new mother whether it was hard, she will ALWAYS answer yes! And rightly so".

Q: How was it for you?
J: "A great moment. It's always very moving. I always get moved to tears - and I was this time as well".

Q: Was it different then to have a girl?
J: "Yes! It has been something I wished for. So to have such a wish fulfilled, that's... yes, I can tick that off as well. An extra tick in the calendar".

Q: How does she look? You daughter?
J: "She looks like newly born girls do. But she has dark hair on her head".

Q: What will the girl be named?
J: "I usually say it can be anything from a one syllable to a five syllable name, so let's say it'll be something between Jo and Cheherazade". (**)

Q: Can you describe the progress?
J: "I think it was like any other birth. It begins with contractions and ends in a birth. That's how it was this time as well".

Q: But hasn't it progressed a bit faster this time?
J: "A birth takes the time a birth takes".

Q: Will you describe your role during the birth?
J: "I've attempted to be the least in the way as possible for the maternity team and to be of best possible help for the mother. And I will not grade myself but I'm under the impression that I was both of help and didn't get in the way".

Q: Did you cut the umbillical cord yourself?
J: "Yes, I did".

Q: You do have experience now?
J: "Yes, now we can tick that off as well. But no two births are the same. And that's why it's important that I attempt not to get in the way, when I should stay away/clear and be of best possible use, when I'm supposed to be that".

Q: Are you going to have a fifth child?
J: (Smiling): "Now, cool it. My daughter is one and a half hour old! So weøll take it quiet/cool and easy".

Q: Have you already phoned you parents?
J: "Yes, that has been done, My daughter's four grandparents have all been told and her borthers are also informed. Apart from that I haven't spend time on the phone, but it's buzzing all the time, so I assume the news have come out".

Q: It's the same maternityteam as before, Birgitte Hillerup and Morten Hedegaard, how did it go this time?
J: "It's the professional team and I'm certainly not the one to judge, but I think it's a wonderful team to work with and I feel all have been in the best hands. There are thanks to both Morten and Birgitte but also to Rigshospitalet".

Q: You said that all births are different. How is this one different from the others?
J: "It was a girl".

Q: How will you celebrate that it was a daughter?
J: "First and foremost mother and daughter must be allowed to rest. And then I have between half and one billion text messages that need answering. So for now I'll take it easy. It's still very early in the morning and not many of us has had any sleep. So we'll take it quiet and easy".

Q: You said you for some time have known that it would be a girl...
J: "No, I said I'd know long enough"!

Q: But then has it during the long-enough-time been difficult to keep the secret?
J: "Yes! Yes, it is difficult to keep a secret. Especially if it's one you are pleased with. But I think it was successful".

Q: Your sons didn't know it would be a little sister?
J: "No, but when I called and told it, they were very, very happy. I think they also looked forward to be brothers of a younger sister".

Q: "What exactly are you looking forward to?
J: "To try having a daughter...and not only sons".

Q: Has pink clothes been purchased?
J: "It doesn't have to be pink when it's a newly born. It doesn't have to be pink all the life thorugh".

To which someone among the press commented: "Just wait and see.. You can well be wrong".

- It's funny to compare Frederik and Joachim in this situation. Let there be no doubt that both were over delighted and happy, but there is in my eyes a clear difference.
What Frederik said, when he met the press came from the heart, bursted out from the heart and as you recall he came up with some very emotional answers.
Joachim was a man who was on, he was aware of the situation and he was in control of the situation. He expressed himself in slight archaic way and somewhat solemn as well. The usage of formal you when addressing him seemed not only proper but actually natural.
I've tried to convey that nuance in the translation.

You see the differences?
Joachim: An overjoyed new father and a royal.
Frederik: An overjoyed new father, who happens to be royal.

(*) You are not a the only dad who has breath a quiet sigh of relief in that respect, Joachim.

(**) This is now the third spelling I have seen of that name.
