Great galleries! Such beautiful and beautifully dressed children. And they were so small at birth.
 
Thanks, Roskilde. It's more fun to watch them now, that their personalities shines through clearly.
 
Five already! I think little Vincent is such a sweet, handsome little boy. Sometimes his crazy sister outshines him a bit ;-) but that's how it goes... The girls get more attention :lol:
 
Thanks for the pictures, Prince Vincent is such a cute shy guy, he is adorable while his sister, Princess Josephine, well she wants to be front and center. She want to be seen and heard and voice her opinion.....what a go-getter she is. And she is going to be a great beauty as she gets older.......dad is going to have his hands full with 2 princesses and it's call out the guard...:lol:

I just knew we would get picutres taken by mommy Mary from their familytrip in Australia :wub: And of course with a coala beer :) Vincent and Josephine have woken up today on their birthday to a Denmark there is white and filled with snow. So I guess they will go out and build a snowman and then walk inside again to hot chocolate, birthday cake and presents.

Kongehuset has today also published pictures of what 5-years old Vincent and Josephine wakes up to today on their their birthday. A snowy Amalienborg. It must be fun for Vincent and Josephine - they celebrated Christmas Eve in the 30 degree and sun and two weeks later they celebrate their birthday in the snow.

(...) these are beautiful. :flowers:

Their faces are changing... It'll be interesting to see if Josephine still resembles Mary so much when she grows up. These things can really change so much in just a few year's time.

And here's the owl sweater again! :lol: A smart way of showing they pass on clothes between the kids too, that it's not all "Versace kidswear" so to speak. I do hope Mary & Frederik's children realize their priviledged position in life, as they get a bit older, and that they don't take it for granted but will give something back to society. (this is a general thought I have about all royal children BTW).

Aw. What lovely pictures!

But whoever is holding the koala is really bad at hiding! :lol:
 
Is it just me or Vincent looks so much like Frederik on those pics, especially the one with just him! A mini-Frederik!

I think Josephine is very Mary, but she also has her own look as well.
 
I think the expression in the eyes say a lot about especially children.

And again I'm personally confirmed in my impression that Josephine will grow up to be the brains of the family. (Not that her siblings appear the least bit slow!) And Vincent. That a thoughtful almost pensive expression - a gentle little man.

I suspected we would get a photo from Australia. very nice! and like years prior and with photos of Christian and Isabella, its nice that Mary took them herself.

Judging from the clothes on the two individual pictures, I would say it was taken the same day as the Christmas New Years card at Trend. (maybe they used a self timer for the family photo, since Mary took these)

I can't believe that the twins are five already. I read on kongehuset.dk that there is snow in Copenhagen, which means the twins get to experience a snowy birthday.

I loved the new photos of them and it's nice that they were taken in Australia. I also like how Mary took them, it's a very normal thing for mothers to take photos of their children so I like it when the royals do this as it makes them seem down-to-earth (I've always thought the Danish CP family are very normal and down-to-earth in the first place, though).

My favourite photo is the one of the twins with the koala - animals and children are often an adorable combination!
 
They are remarquably beautiful children !!!!
 
I can't believe how much they've grown up! Vincent looks very much like his father and sister Isabella, IMO, while Josephine is a little Mary! It's fun watching them grow up.
 
Mary takes lovely pictures of her children and the latest ones are no exception. I love the personal touch instead of professional,portraits. The twins are so cute. Hard to believe they're five already.

I think Josephine is very Mary, but she also has her own look as well.

Vincent is starting to look more like his father, and I see a bit of his brother in him too. While I always thought Josephine was a mini-Mary I now see Isabella (and hence Margrethe) in her.

Agree, and they're a pleasure to watch as F&M's children - all four - have such personality already. Funny how the boys and girls remind of each other. The boys are 'real boys', but at the same time with the most gentle souls and adorable smiles. And the girls have those sparkling sunshine-personalities, they're the charming and funny entertainers of the family. All four very happy, confident and well-balanced children.

Right know Vincent og Josephine still goes in kindergarten just 5 minutes from Frederik's 8's palace. In principle, they can begin to school in August this year, when they're 5.5 years old. I doubt it. I think F&M let them wait another year to they're 6.5 years. As they did with Isabella. It's more common and let them be 'children' a little longer. It's also very much F&M's style. But of course, if they are ready so...

BB have made a 8 minutes long birthday-video of the twins :) (It's most talk, though)

Looking at the lovely birthday pictures details (if you save them on your computer) you can see that the two single portraits of Vincent and Josephine was taken on October 15, 2015 (on Christian's birthday). It's also easy to see they are taken in Trend where the Crown Prince family held Christian's 10th birthday during their autumn holiday.

The picture of Vincent and Josephine together in Australia was taken on December 18, 2015.

I agree. Such happy kids that love the outdoors.

Interesting about the start of school, it would be so cute to see the twins answering some questions.
But I guess you are right, Isabella had turn 6 in April and Christian was a few months shy of his 6th birthday
 
Summaries of two articles in Billed Bladet #02, 2016.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Who took up position on Amalienborg Square on Vincent and Josephine's birthday - where he must have been frozen blue! - Because it was a cold day with heavy snow. - And judging from the expression on Josephine's face when sitting in a Nihola-bike with her brother, being driven to the kindergarten by mother, she had not yet fully re-acclimatized from Australia.
Mary too was prudently buried behind her scarf.
At 09.00 the family went out the gate heading towards the kindergarten, escorted by a PET officer on bike.
But the good BB photographer must have been numb with cold, because Frederik wasn't noticed...

But around 13.30 the twins were picked up again and ferried home, so they could be celebrated.
At around 14.00 Christian and Isabella returned home from school and at 14.30 QMII arrived. She spend an hour with her grandchildren before leaving again.
At 17.00 when darkness had set in, it was time for the friends to arrives, carrying presents. The guests were received at the gate by all four of M&F's children as well as Ziggy.

Among the guests were:
Ellen Hillingsø with her Christoffer Carstenschiold and their two children, Anna and Thomas.
Ellen Hillingsø's cousin, Rikke Juul Brandt with her Michael Brandt and their two daughters.
Christian Levin and Sofie Glahn with their daughter Leonora.
Pernille and Bendt Tito Wedell with their sons Tido and Hannibal.

- So it must have been lively!

Frederik not noticed? Not even with his bright blue jacket? ;)

Oh thanks a lot Muhler, you brought smiles to my face with that comment. Because yes, little Josephine (and Vincent and Mary too for that matter) definitely look like some who hadn't yet fully re-acclimatized from Australia's warm and sunny weather :D:p:p

And what a winter weather to come home to. Snow, cold and windy. Tonight we can expect -15 degrees below zero. Brrrr.... F & M and children must freeze their *** off after a month in mother's homeland.

But as you can see we Danes (F&M and children included) take our cycles in all kind of weather. In rain, wind and snow. We're used to it... But don't be fooled. We do not think it's funny. Not at all. :cool:

And another thanks from me for your summaries, Muhler. I'll bet that Mary and Frederik got very tired at the end of the party with all those little children running around! I hope Vincent and Josephine had a fun time.

Brrr, it looks to be freezing in Copenhagen. Is it common for it to still be snowing in April over there? Here in England, it would be somewhat of a novelty. It's getting colder here too (one of the weather reporters last night was lost for words at the cold, so just summarised the weather as "brrr"... :D) and we are below zero at night. It's possible that we're going to get some snow too next week.
 
:previous: You are welcome. :)

It's uncommon to have snow lying around into April but it happens every ten winter or so. Usually the winter should be over by mid March.
But I fear this will be a repeat of the 2012 winter.
I didn't snow much, but it kept blowing for more than a month, well into March. And with the windchill factor it was minus 20 during the day, so the snow didn't melt.
