It surprises me that Joachim would be that candid (in public) about wanting a girl if he already didn't know that the baby would be a girl. Just a thought...they waited long enough to announce and probably know what the gender is. Time will tell!

Don't you find the timing of the announcement odd? Obviously, it's been announced a bit later than usual. One possibility (I hope not!) is that the pregnancy has had some difficulties and they wanted to wait a bit. The other one is that they wanted to spend a quiet summer and not let the press know during the family photo shoot. And yet...why announcing it during the CPC's tour?? Did they want to steal the show a bit?? Am I being too mean?
(I agree with windsorgirl that maybe they already know the sex of the baby, but who knows...?)

I don't think they plan to announce it when they want, it was released by the court and not Joachim or Marie before hand. Im sure they would've needed the Queens approval for such an announcement at this time. I also don't see why it takes the limelight out of the Crown Prince's couples tour, they didn't get overshadowed by the news in anyway so far.

The reason maybe they waited a while is that they wanted the right time to inform the Queen if she hadn't known or they were having some difficulties or they just decided to wait for a bit longer.

About the gender, Its quite common to ask any expecting parent what would they like the sex of the baby to be and obviously in Joachim's case after 3 boys, a little girl will be more like the answer. You know the sex of the baby at 14 weeks but that is being 50% sure, Dr's like to wait till between 16-18weeks.

Maybe they waited so long with the announcement because they could: Marie is still very slim, no baby bump showing, no baby rumours were running about. They simply might have enjoyed their sweet secrecy. Btw, I would guess that the immediate family has been into the secret for a while. Anyway, it's great news and I wish them all the best!

Probably they know the sex of their child.
Being 35 years old Princess Marie will probably get the advice to have a prenatal screening. This happens mostly in the 12th week of pregnancy.
This is to detect some form of congenital or chromosomal defects like Down Syndrome or Spina Bifida. It is called chorionic villus.
The risk for such defects increases with the older maternal age.
You can then also, if you want, discover the sex of your unborn baby

Maybe that they waited with the announcement till they had the results of the test.

I remember that at least one among you were a little saddened that our Marie and her Joachim along the rest of the DRF were reduced to props at the recent photoshoot at Gråsten. Where the twins and M&F's family got all the attention.
Had the press only known....

Wonderful news I had hoped for another baby for Joachim and Marie! It will be lovely for little Henrik to have a sibling at home all the time.

It´s the last sentences, I´m talking about. She´s revealing that they will have a prince, when asked about the rumors about that it´s a princess, she answers: "That´s a lie. Or rather - I do not know."
She just talks too much.

I think when she said "it's a lie", meaning it is not true that they knew about the gender of the baby, not that it's a lie that the baby is a girl.

Come on, you´re kidding right? You must need to read the entire phrase.

Saying "that's a lie" is a very strong accusatory phrase in English. Saying "that's not true", is MUCH softer. Is that how it would seem in Danish, the second translation?

Please also remember that Google Translator is a computer program and does not take into consideration multiple translations of a phrase. I think Princess Marie was trying to say that the reports are not true. Reading into that statement is a fruitless exercise - she's been a Princess of Denmark for many years now...she knows how to handle the media.
