Isabella and Christian have both grown up so much over times we haven't seen photos of them. And yep, Isabella is looking like a typical pre-teen of the 2010s I wonder if she is now fitting into adult sizes as her dress reminds me of a summer dress I have myself from H&M.

Prince Christian and Princess Isabela are entering their teens. Christian is almost 14 years old.
When will we see Christian and Isabela more often at official events like Leonor and Sofia of Spain and the Princes of Belgium for example?

We've been seeing the Danish royals at more official events than the Belgians and certainly the Spanish imo. They for example were actively involved in the recent trip to the Faroer Islands (and previously to Greenland); in addition they attend several 'evening events' a year - and have done so from a rather young age.

Thing is that unlike Leonor, Sofia and Elisabeth, Christian and Isabella are still "just" grandchildren of the monarch. As such they aren't expected to participate in official events until they're 18.

That said, I think Mary and Frederik have found a nice balance in letting them be kids and at the same time slowly introducing them to their future. I think they're good at bringing them to various official engagements and their appearances in public will only increase the older they get.

I suppose you mean at more solemn or serious events?
So far the CP children have mainly taken part in the more light or child-friendly events, like unveiling things or celebrating someone or meeting the public.
And as Somebody and Archduchess Zelia pointed out they now have a lot of experience in that and as such feel pretty at ease in public and with being the center of attention. - Both at home and in relatively "foreign" places like Greenland and the Faeroe Islands (where the nature, language, culture and sometimes people are different) - and I hope soon Australia as well at a more official visit there soon.

I personally think that once Christian has been confirmed and supposedly has been taught about the church (depending how much he pays attention...) we may see him attend services with his parents and especially Christian will, I believe, soon accompany his parents on more "adult" jobs. I.e. suits, serious stuff and loooong speeches.
Shortly followed around 16 or so by his first solo-event.
Isabella will follow closey behind I think. (There has to be a trained spare, just in case.) And around age 16 she can easily visit a kindergarten or two or a sports club on her own. - Or attend a sports event, lending support to Danish athletes. Perhaps especially her Holger. Also on her own.

It will be interesting though to see how big a role the twins will get. But we will gradually see more and more to all four children. Of course with added emphasis on Christian.

During the Faroer visit, Christian joined his father on one specific occasion. I remember several TRF-ers pointing out that it was a clear sign of Christian more formally growing into his role as the future crown prince and king of Denmark (before, he mainly attended activities with his siblings).

At least she is not suffering from the dreaded 'nomophobia', a condition officially recognized by the American Psychology Association that entails a fear of losing a cell phone!

Nomophobia? Never heard that one before, but it's logic come to think of it.

Nice to see that the DRF are still visiting France after Prince Henrik's passing. It's nice to keep his memory alive And Cay seems like a beautiful place, so why not make the most of it?!

It is the third year in a row that the Crown Prince family will be sailing to various places in Denmark, and today visited the carpentry workshop Egeværk

This is fantastic!
Learning and enjoying Denmark as a family; and how great that they share pictures with us!

"Again this year we have taken our four children on an adventure in Denmark with the Royal Ship Dannebrog. Today we tried our hand at blowing glass at the working workshop Backhaus-Brown & Glassmedjen, and then we also visited the carpentry workshop Egeværk. We were also past the polar scientist Knud Rasmussen's home. My husband could tell many stories about him to the children. It was a lovely day.

more info on the family's plans. (private but sharing some pictures)

It's nice to see the children getting stuck in with Danish culture and lifestyle. It seems like an interesting workshop! I also noticed that Isabella and Josephine are starting to look more alike now.

When vacationing with the Dannebrog it will be hard to stay unnoticed anyway...

True. But it's always nice that they share pictures of their day and activities. So far I haven't seen too many paparazzi or Instagram pics of the family; generally they are left alone (thankfully).

I like that they are starting some sort of tradition of their own, and it's right here in Denmark.

"Today's stop on our voyage with the Royal Ship was in Kongsøre, where the Frømmanskorpset is located. This is where I took my education as a frogman, and today I had the pleasure of showing the whole family my former workplace.
It was a great experience to get out into the terrain with the family, find objects using maps, try the obstacles on the obstacle course and finally free play in the water. One day we will all forget late. �� The Crown Prince Couple"

That sounds like a fun day.

Is it Christian jumping into the water?

And I see Frederik and his two sons, brought with them a lighter version of the wooden beam, the frogman aspirant-squads carry with them all the time when training around the corps-area.

Frogman aspirants wear red helmets until they have graduated - or much more likely - have left. So the red caps worn by Mary and the girls are appropriate.
