I thought a good way to start the new thread is to post a few photos of the lille prins that we have so far.

THANK YOU!:D Finally we have a date set! And, a date to find out the name!

purple_platinum 11-14-2005 09:32 AM

I know! It's quite a long wait, and the gown will be way to small for him by then!

But, we will probably get to see him again around the holidays. The royal family does holiday portraits, don't they? Do you think the will include portraits of lille prins? Do they do that will Nikolai and Felix?

pollyemma 11-14-2005 01:05 PM

I want to know his name!

sorry.

Royal Danish prince's stem cells saved
From: AAP

November 27, 2005

STEM cells from the umbilical cord of Australian-born Princess Mary's baby son have been preserved in a Denmark hospital, possibly as insurance for the child's future health.

I think that it's a good idea. All children should have this precaution taken on their behalf.

i read that articles also,purple_platium

im hope baby Prince would be alright and stem would be easy aint safe for him or safe for him but im not sure!

It's quite normal for a new baby to sleep alot. We'll see a picture of him awake at his christening in January, but maybe not before. Maybe at the holiday celebrations?

Royal Fan 11-27-2005 03:55 AM

we will see him around Christmas im almost sure

Oppie 11-27-2005 12:38 PM

About the name

Do his parents call him by his name ? Do other members of the family (like the grandparents) know by now and call him that ?

I'm sure the baby already has a name...or I'd hope so. I think it's a tradition to keep names secret outside the family but the family itself calls the baby by his real name. We'll find out his name at his Christening. I believe this is what happened with Nikolai and Felix too.

Layla1971 12-01-2005 12:08 AM

Nice story, thanks for finding it!

For those that don't speak Danish, I'll try to give the jist of it but I'm only learning Swedish and while alot of words are similar, I probably won't be too great a translator! And, I used some of my own words throughout the article.

A happy or lucky family. They resembled any normal Danish family in the forest or park? Crown Princely couple with lilleprins in his pram and dog Ziggy on his leash.

The couple has had difficult times with the baby's illness but now lilleprins in 6 weeks old and doing well. On Sunday? the couple went for a walk in a forest or park in marvellous weather and even though it was cold the sky was clear and the sun was out. The family was dressed warmly and lilleprins was in his pram that was safely pushed by his mother?

I'm not sure of some words, but I think this line says something about the sunshine being good for the baby? Or that lilleprins is a good-looking baby?

CP Mary has not had any engagements recently except for the visit from the Nowegian King a couple of weeks ago.

Frederik is happy in his new role as a father and he tries to live up to the pressure, although his age and maturity help. And, that he values or is serious about fatherhood as much as his role as CP? (Not sure on that part at all!)

I'd be happy for any Danish speakers to correct me! I think my translation is rather off. :) :)

Also, here is the picture from the article, (hosted by Tiny Pic, so mods don't worry!)

rchainho 12-05-2005 08:01 PM

report of a portuguese magazine from this week VIP.

more or less translation of the article.

Letizia and Mary have different rights

.....

The pregnancy and the return the house
The pregnancy of Letizia Ortiz was marked for the problems of health and the images
of fatigue and indisposição of the princess for the the opposite, with Mary Donaldson everything ran of the best form and the nine months had been lived with great descontracção.
She was exactly the Danish princess who was mother in first place. In the day
15 of October, the small heir of the crown was born, whose name, until the a it dates, it remains an enigma, therefore it will only be divulged in the baptizado one, still that he could be Christian Frederik John. Three days later the family the house came back and was the image of a happy family. Besides speaking with the journalists to the door of the hospital, to the door of its residence of the Castle of Fredensborg, still they had been with the popular ones and they had played with the dog of the family who received them in great agitation.
About 15 days later, the 31 of October, the Leonor princess was born. Against all
forecasts, mother and son had been hospitalized one week. The exit of the hospital,
mother was very happy with its bebé and made question to answer to the questions of journalists. The door of the palace was not possible to see the couple.

the rest of the translation...

About 15 days later, the 31 of October, the Leonor princess was born. Against all
forecasts, mother and son had been hospitalized one week. The exit of the hospital,
mother was very happy with its bebé and made question to answer to the questions of journalists. The door of the palace was not possible to see the couple.

mother was very happy with its bebé and made question to answer to the questions of

However, both the princesses already had reappeared, however, but Mary retook its agenda official. Certain it seems to be the fact that both the baptizados ones will
have place in December and is even said of the possibility of Philip to be godfather of bebé Danish.

Education and the guard of the children
Both babies will be kings, therefore, it is to wait that its education has this in it counts, still that with different boardings.
Mary Donaldson is the only mother of a heir of the crown that made question to assure its paper of mother, exactly in divorce case. Realist and with conscience that its story of fairies can finish, the Australian was the only princess to assure an agreement that allows it to have right to the safekeeping of the child. All the other princesses, including Letizia, in case divorce they lose the right to its children.

He looks much cuter in these than in the original ones. I wonder what motivated this relase? Not that I don't appreciate them. What color would you call those eyes?

Princejohnny25 12-05-2005 10:04 PM

He has some very dark eyes. I think they are dark brown. Arent marys dark brown.

I'm guessing they knew the public would want to see the baby as it grew before the christening. They probably decided on December so it would be an early Christmas gift for the public. This way there would be pictures released roughly every two months. I know his christening is next month,but it is at the end of January.

planetcher 12-06-2005 12:01 AM

I think it's because we've been patiently waiting for the name.

lise 12-06-2005 12:13 AM

moby 12-06-2005 03:40 AM

he's very cute, attentive and inquisitive! i think he looks like his mum. if he'll turn out even half as cute as his cousins, he'll be a certified future hunky prince! :D :D

still i got bothered by the yellow so i adjusted the pic.:D

nouwrein 12-06-2005 04:04 AM

Why are they releasing these pictures now? So they called for another official pictorial on November 17? This is one marketing strategy for Danish Royal House. It's not that I'm not happy for these new pics, of course I like lots of new pics. But I just don't understand their motive. And in time with Prince Sverre's? :rolleyes: Well, Prince Sverre's is cuter.

Australian 12-06-2005 04:08 AM

Well they have to release pics because it is natural to do so, they are showing the people who their future King is!, and it is a matter of opinion on who you think is cuter, also, you can delete that post yourself by clicking on edit and delete

Who says there has to be a motive at all? And of course it is your right to think Prince Sverre is cuter (no one has a right to question this I most certainly dont), but I couldn't help but get the impression that you said this to try and cause a reaction...

No offence meant.

Australian 12-06-2005 08:02 AM

yes i think that we here at the DRF are mature enough not to waste our time arguing over which baby is cuter.

Well the baby has mary's eyes, but then i heard that babies eye colours change , im not too sure, but so far, the little prince has mary's eyes :)

Pink Tulip 12-06-2005 08:40 AM

There is also an article on the Hello! magazine website:

https://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...06/danishbaby/

He has his mothers eyes, thats for sure. And what a cute smile. I think he's going to be a bit of a heartbreaker when he gets older!;)

Australian 12-06-2005 08:49 AM

thanks for that article Pink Tulip, wow, imagine if the prince does end up marrying bec and lleyton's daughter! The Danish royal family will soon be taken over by Australians lol,

Is it true that if babies are born with hair, they will have straight hair, and if they are born with no hair, they wil have curly hair?

I know it sounds silly but this is what i was told for a long time

Oh ok, everyone in my family were the antithesis of your situation Auntie. It's probably just a silly midwifes tale.

if he inherits any of his mother are father's looks he will be very handsome when he gets older

betina 12-06-2005 04:42 PM

yes but many children gets prettyer when then grow from baby to child. Look at Amalia. I think the same will happen to the little prince, but in my head he is not very pretty now, but it will come I hope

purple_platinum 12-06-2005 04:51 PM

i dont really get why they released these photos. they're not in anyway different from the earlier ones. except perhaps that M and F wanted to reassure us that the yellow skin tone was not permanent.

He will spend his life being criticized and bashed for the most ridiculous (or sometimes real) reasons, like any other princes, on this forum and elsewhere.
For the time being, that would be very sweet if the comments remains positives since he has done nothing creditable/judgeable yet. So we get it, some of you think he is a yellowish ugly baby, let's move on now... (rolling eyes out of their orbits)

samitude 12-06-2005 06:40 PM

I think they released the photos for us to A) see how he is growing; B) because they know everyone likes new pictures and maybe the paparazzi will keep off their backs; C) They release them later then when they were taken so they won't have to release new Christmas pictures. Also, they know there will be a hoard of new photos at the christening in January; D) We finally get to see "Den lille Prins" (I love that phrase by the way!) with his eyes open! They've been closed at all the rest of the photo shoots.:)

You are totally right Idriel. We are talking about a baby here!!! How hard is it to keep it positive??

moosey60 12-06-2005 06:53 PM

Ahaha! His pictures make me laugh! His expression is so cute, he looks so expressive and alert!

I think he has Frederik's eyes as of now...but maybe they'll turn darker in time. Adorable! His nose is a little too big for his little face, but of course he'll grow into it soon enough :P

I hope his first name isn't "Christian". I realize it's tradition, but there should be some variety...I.e. Name Christian Name Name of Denmark. It could be Nikolai, Felix and Mathias. Nikolai and Felix are kinda' modern-sounding names.

regardez 12-06-2005 08:08 PM

According to neonatal jaundice "usually lasts 8 days in normal births, or to around day 14 in premature births". So because these pictures were taking on the 14th of November (and he is being breastfed, which also increases the appearance of jaundice) it makes sense that he was still a little yellow in them. I'm sure it is all gone by now. I don't think it takes away from his cuteness. I think these pictures are much better than the first offical portraits because his eyes are open. I love how alert he seems!

Me too, and I'm relieved I'm not the only one who find the baby not so cute :o But I'm sure he'll grow handsome with time. Are the baby pictures airbrushed/photoshopped?

Danielle 12-06-2005 11:44 PM

I'm upset that people are calling the little prince 'ugly' and 'yellow'. He's only a baby and already people are resorting to name-calling. Every child is a beautiful miracle and if those people who are being mean can't see that, then I don't know what to say. I think he's adorable and precious, and I have no doubt that Mary and Frederik feel the same way about their son. So please, could people refrain from calling him ugly?

We all have our own personal views but to call a dear little baby ugly etc, is most pathetic and quite intolerable. We ourselves were all baby's at one stage or another...And to start comparing with other new borns...really!!!

Thank you, and you are right; we all were babies ourselves at one time. I still can't get over how people can call a child ugly. It makes me very sad, but that's all I'll say on the matter.

I know that he's only a baby, but what people see is just our perception side of things...i have to agree that maybe he isn't so attractive when he was born (definitely not ugly as you say..)....BUT ...it's not like it will be permanent! i think he'll grow to become cuter and handsomer with time...but..at the moment...i don't think that the little prince is that handsome when compare to other new born baby prince/princess we've on this board so far

I don't think there is anything wrong with saying he was yellow (um...he was?), but I do think it is wrong for people to attack him for it. He's just a wee one.

He defintely looks like Mary around his eyes (but, zooming in on the picture I believe the eyes are blue or grey not brown like hers) and he looks like he has Fred's mouth. Like I said earlier, he does look very aware of his surroundings and attentative. It is so fun to watch babies learn more about their world and life.

Princess BellyFlop 12-07-2005 01:35 AM

Not every newborn is beautiful but every newborn is beautiful to his mother!

In this case, the little Danish prince may not be the most handsome royal baby we have recently seen but he's not an ugly baby either. I guess that because of his handsome father our expectations were quite high and that might be why some are disappointed with his current look.

Let's not forget that he was born by natural birth and didn't have the advantage of the very beautiful Infanta Leonor. C-section babies are almost always perfectly lovely as they didn't have to suffer through the natural human passage of birth.

It is very low of a person to call a baby ugly, i dont know what else to say. I thought only mean old people call babies ugly. Poor kid.

MoonlightRhapsody 12-07-2005 02:02 AM

If you ask me, if I took a look at all the babies born this year, I couldn't tell them apart. They all look the same to me; all of them are cute because babies are cute. I can't see resemblances to their parents, either. Maybe that's because I'm not a parent myself.

Prince Denmark is a cute baby, regardless of the jaundice which is a temporary medical condition. 'Nuff said.

bananarama 12-07-2005 04:01 AM

It is an indicator of someones low character when they can attack a childs looks. Everyone here knows to whom this is addressed. :mad:

I personally think the baby is beautiful (all are!). He has gorgeous eyes, and he looks like a really happy baby. Actually I think he looks inquisitive like others have noted.

Couldnt agree with you more!

Margrethe II 12-07-2005 04:19 AM

In the interest of the thread everyone, why not lets try and move forward?:) Those who feel a need to project negative comments, especially about an infant child, are telling us more about themselves than they would no doubt wish to divulge.

Lets take the healthier approach and move forward ;) :)

Kind regards,

"MII"

Danielle 12-07-2005 04:55 AM

I agree, Margrethe II. I think we all (including myself) have said out two cents worth, so if people have comments about the Prince's appearance that may be interpreted as being overtly negative (such as the use of 'ugly'), please refrain from posting them.

ysbel 12-07-2005 05:34 AM

I think all the babies look cute. :) Still looking forward to den lille prinsen's christening.

I would have liked to see more recent pics of den lille prins. He must have grown quite a bit from these pics already.

KikkiB 12-07-2005 05:37 AM

I honestly can't see the point of comparing royal babies, as to who is the cutest! All babies are cute in their own individual way! And frankly, the cuteness doesn't mean a thing! The most important is that the little prince (and all the other little princes and princess' in the world) is healthy, well and content! Anything else is irrelevant, in my opinion.

And haven't people learnt that you should not pick on people who are smaller than you :confused:

carlota 12-07-2005 05:41 AM

i also think all babies are cute, some are more than others though. we will have to take some more time to see who looks cuter and more beautiful :)

Well, Prince William was not that cute when he was an infant baby..I remember a picture of him when he was a few days old with his mom Diana and Dad Charles, the baby prince was so thin and not so cute, but as the months and years passed by, the baby prince become more and more beautiful..Well, the little Danish prince would not be that cute for some of members here..but lets just wait and see..He's just infant, his real facial feautures are not that developed yet...and I believe he'll be as beautiful as his parents and will turn into Prince Charming..and frankly, i find him really cute even as an infant...might be you cant resist his charm when you see the baby in person..

pollyemma 12-07-2005 10:11 AM

the prince's appearance isthe only thing we have to discuss right now. in the comings years, as he starts saying and doing things we'll have more substantive discussions.

he just had bad luck that he was born in a season of exceptional pulchritude among royal babies. ingrid alexandra, alexia and Leonor are all unusually beautful. and its inevitable that we'll compare.

we all know from personal experience that the way a baby looks has next to no relationship to how he/she will look when they grow up.

there may actually be an inverse relationship.there's a dutch folk saying that goes "mooi in de luier, lelijk in de sluier." beautiful in the diaper, ugly in the wedding veil.

so it may actually be a good thing for the prince that he isn't too cute.:)

Australian 12-07-2005 10:19 AM

But surely it is way to early to start critisizing the prince just so soon after his birth, its just not normal to talk like that when someone is born. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but just give him a break, he is only just born.
Pollyemma, we all know your opinon on this, you have stated it a number of times, and like the others in this thread are saying, lets move on.

pollyemma 12-07-2005 10:34 AM

Did you even read my post? I was trying to say something nice.

mtbcm 12-07-2005 11:26 AM

Due to personal reasons I haven't been able to participate at RF as much as I would like.

Personaly I think Lilleprinsen has a very sweat, tender and happy look. He is very a beautifull baby who has a very beautifull smilling eyes.

Personaly, I would advise royal parents for not publishing this intimate and personal photos. These aren't "produced photos". These are photos taken when their baby was awake and his parents decided to photograph him , so everyone could see how cute and grown-up their baby is. Like all parents do!! But they are crown princes and they know everyone is always curious about everything they do and they decided to share their happiness and send pics to the media.

I think this is very thoughtfull of them!

From me, I Thank you!

Regards,
mtbcm :)

Good idea even if we always enjoy looking at pictures of royal.

Might have been a good idea also to wait a little bit and not release the pictures the same day - even the same week - the Norgevian RF releases the very 1st pictures of newborn prince Sverre. What were/are the PR people of the DRF thinking? that they need to take the limelight back on them right on?

They seem to be in agenda conflict with many other RF and not always acting graciously about it: absence to F&L wedding, asking but not showing up to IA's baptism, 2ND set of pictures of their son within the week as the norvegian prince is born (as if they didn't know some pictures would be released!),...

Alisa 12-07-2005 12:59 PM

The little Prince certainly looks precious and adorable. I like the photo of him with his mouth open with his bright and alert eyes...Very cute. https://www.mediawatchers.nl/smileys/Petals.gif

Mandy 12-07-2005 01:37 PM

This tread belongs to the Lilleprisen who is too young to schedule events and cannot possibly have the mental prowess to formulate an agenda against other Royal Babies or Royal Houses. If you wish to discuss the negative points ot the Danish Royal Family or retaliate against your least favourite Crown Princess or Crown Prince, I suggest that you find the appropriate thread to vent your feelings.

All posts/comments unrelated to the Lilleprisen will be deleted from this point forward.

A big thank you to all members who have maintained their dignity and dispensed with the name calling throughout this thread.

I think he is a little cutey.

I think he is showing a strong resemblance to Mary in the face.

I think he will end up looking very much like his Mum in the face but with fairer hair and blue eyes, like Frederik. I expect he will inherit features from both sides in teh same way Alex and Joachims boys have.

Very well said. Totally agree! :p

The Lilleprinsen is an absolutely beautiful royal baby. He has incredibly beautiful eyes and lovely smile. He looks so sweet and so cute!!!!

I think his face is a very good mix of Frederik and Mary. He certainly is a cutie! https://crownprincessmary.ipbhost.com...ticons/wub.gif

Amen

I also agreed . He is rather cute, very alert and has sort of inquisite look. His features are unique- reflecting different heritage-Danish, Scottish and French. I think he will be a very handsome prince in time to come. :)
