If one could see in the pictures, she is indeed a really tall child. Barely at the age of 8months, she is already big and tall. =)

Thanks a bunch for collecting all these pics - I really love seeing pictures of both Margrethe, Benedikte and Anne-Marie as toddlers. I can't help thinking, that I would prefer for Mary and Frederik to have a girl as their first born. We haven't had a newborn Princess in Denmark since 1946...
