Those are lovely photographs, they seem like they're all having so much fun. And it looks slightly warmer than the CP-family's photoshoot.

I've always loved seeing Marie with Nikolai and Felix, they've always seemed to have such a warm and affectionate relationship with each other, it's wonderful to see.

And Joachim often seems a bit stiff and formal to me, so seeing him fool around like that with all his boys is just fantastic

I think it is Isabella's suit re-used.
A very sensible thing to do.
Athena is very cute, love her hat (but the spectacles are ridiculous).

I hadn't seen those two pictures before now, they are precious

FasterB, I don't understand what you think is missing in the pictures. Right from the engagement there's been pictures and videos of Nikolai and Felix running to give Marie a hug, laughing with her and so on. But more importantly to me, both boys always seem completely natural around her. I don't care who poses together at a photoshoot (especially not when there are babies and toddlers to keep track of) or who walks in together at a christening. When I see Nikolai and Felix with Marie they never seem uncomfortable or like the smiles are just staged for the press and children wouldn't be able to fake that. They seem to genuinely like her and she them. That to me speaks of a really good, warm and affectionate relationship "behind the scenes", which is what is most important.

I don't know if there's a perfect recipe for handling "yours, mine and our" children, but Joachim, Marie, Alexandra and Marting seem to have found a very harmonious solution and the boys seem happy and comfortable with all four adults.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, they also seem really fond of their younger siblings, which I think is another very positive sign.

I just have two things to say.
1. This is one of the most good-looking families ever, royal or not. All of these kids are going to be heart-breakers.
2. I really love the way all of them interact with each other; you can see genuine warmth and affection.

Felix and Nikolai appear to get allong famously with their step-mother and dote on Henrik and Athena. Joachim is amazing with all of his kids, and Marie seems to be a great mother and step-mother. Joachim, Alexandra, Marie and Martin are to be commended with creating a warm, relaxed atmosphere in the family.

My favourite pictures:
- Joachim with his boys
- Prince Joachim playing with Nikolai and Felix
- A great dad-and-me time for Joachim and Nikolai

- Girls' time
- Nikolai, the doting elder brother
- Athena giving a hug to the world
- A wonderful picture of Marie and Felix

completely. marie obviously bonded with felix and nikolai extremely well. she seems very affectionate towards them and they obviously like her. beautiful pic of marie and felix.

it's interesting that joachim and marie decide to holiday in villars instead of verbier like frederik and mary who holiday in verbier. seeing it's at the same time i find it most odd that they prefer to part to different resorts.

What is odd about siblings with their own families holidaying in different places, especially since Marie's family own the house where they stay? Its not as if they don't see each other on a pretty regular basis as it is, no need to share everything.

Why odd?
1. IIRC Joachim and Frederik haven't had holidays at the same time at the same place since I am watching the DRF (since Joachim married his first wife). The Dutch RF has it's family gathering in Lech in the winter, the Danish RF in Graasten in the summer.
2. Marie's family has a small cottage in Villars where they are staying. From what we have seen of it it's probably too small for both families.
3. Joachim and Marie enjoy the media attention very much (unlike e.g. the Dutch 2nd + 3rd princes). They probably want their own family photoshoot and not stand in the shadow of the CP family.

I can't say I agree about Marie and the boys having a unaffectionate relationship either. I think she has managed to do the whole 'step-mother' thing extremely well, probably because she's had a step-mother herself that she wasn't fond of, so she knows how things shouldn't be done. It really warms my heart to see her with Nikolai and Felix because it's obvious that she loves them very much even though they're not "hers", and they love her.

This is my favourite picture, it's obvious to see that Nikolai has inherited his mothers way with children

Also, there's nothing odd about Marie and Joachim choosing to holiday in Villars instead of Verbier, Marie went to boarding school in Villars so it obviously is a special place to her.

To me it seams that the mother has a strong preference for the little girl, I always though that...

Hope to see them skiing...

Isn't it normal that the mother takes most care of the youngest child?
Henrik has his father and brothers to take care of him.

And I hope they will be left in peace now as this is the reason behind this photo opportunity.
