A very relax photo shot, but what a sad thing to see Prince Gustav and Carina still unmarried and even without children .

And the cuteness factor goes up one more notch.
Video. Vincent og Josephine i hopla

A BB video of the DRF, in particular the twins, at the changing of the guard.
Not sure what the twins are doing, but it's fun to watch...

----------------

Thanks for the DR1 video, Roskilde. :flowers:

It seems to have changed place, so here is the new link:

A couple of things I noticed. It was Nikolai who called for Athena to sit on his lap during the group shot. - A super older bother, eh?

It was indeed Josephine who called for her mother.

Muhler, those videos were cuteness overloads :D, thank you for posting. Near the beginning of the video, they filmed a fairly large crowd, I didn't realise that members of the public could watch the photo shoots at Grasten Slot too. I thought it was only cameramen/paparazzi.

Thank you everyone who posted videos and photos of this year's photo shoot. I particularly like the photos of Christian and Isabella pulling the twins in the cart. I also like the photos of Queen Margarethe and her sisters on the bench- like others here, I thought it was nice that Queen Anne-Marie attended; I hope she attends next year's photo shoot :).

My pleasure. :)

No, there were none outside the press inside the garden during the photoshoot at 10.30.
However there was a crowd during the changing of the guards at 12.00.

This explains it all and also where everybody was and when: https://app.box.com/s/fhcvklbjb3uib1ngk0hb

The changing of the guards is always a crowd pleaser, but when QMII is in residence outside Fredensborg or Amalienborg, the conscript guardsmen are usually selected from those who come from that particular part of the country. In this case Southern Jutland, so many relatives show up to watch their sons and daughters stand guard for Her Majesty.
Joachim, when he served in the now amalgamated Dronningens Livregiment, also stood guard for Queen Ingrid here at Gråsten Slot, because that regiment provided guards for Queen Ingrid outside Fredensborg and Amalienborg.

Should Mary sometime in the future become a widow, it will not be unlikely that a regiment would get the honor of guarding her residence, when she lives outside Copenhagen, while the Royal Lifeguard will guard king Christian. She will after all still be a majesty.

Josephine and Vincent have shot up! In my head they're still little babies!
 
And just as we thought it couldn't possibly become anymore cuter. Kongefamilien forsøger at få styr på familiefoto'et | GO'

Here the family is trying to find their places for the group photo, that's a bit complicated with no less than 22 present.
But notice at 0:45 or so, where Josephine is caressing Vincent's hair.

A little side note, but take a look at the background of the picture.. Isn't it the there where this Christmas Card from 2010 is taken? http://www.billedbladet.dk/sites/bi...erik-og-mary/julekortprivat.jpg?itok=NvlWgX44

Yes, that is the same couch or chair. I noticed that Frederik's shirt is the same one he wore to the same photocall 2 years ago.
 
Such cute kids. Vincent and Josephine are precious, I get the feeling that Josephine is a very determined little girl. I loved in the video, "Kongefamilien forsøger at få styr på familiefoto'et | GO'" when Henrik hade little Henrik in front of him.
 
My pleasure. :)

All the children looked like they had a great time. For me, the twins defiantly stole the show!

Its a tattoo of a shark fish. Apparently it represents the insignia of a Danish Elite Forces Unit. It was first spotted around 2005.

Thanks for all the links, beautiful photos of all the family members. The twins have grown so much and are really cute. And I like the interaction between Joachims children, Nikolai seems to be a very responsible eldest brother.

Here is another video Dänische Royals: Familientreffen in den Sommerferien - Royal - People - Unterhaltung - Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen

Amazing, the cuteness continues. Thanks Fairy Tale. :flowers:

Notice Josephine in the begining. She points out the photographers to her mother: "Mor. - Moar", just in case Mary didn't know. - Then Josephine makes sure her hair is sitting right. - She is very much a little lady. :lol:
That girl has had me completely charmed.

And at 1.00 Mary calls for Vincent, there is a swing free. And when dad push Vincent on the swing at 1.24, Vincent shouts: "Higher".

At 2:10 Vincents points at the press and calls: "Papi", presumably for Prince Henrik as he is in front and Frederik is further down.
