Today's Pics: And Babies Make Six

The royal Danish twins, who were born to Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Fredrik on Jan. 8 were christened today and their names were finally revealed to the world. They are Prince Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and Princess Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda. I'm not quite sure how they selected these names; neither of them were on my list of possibilities. The new babies join Prince Christian and Princess Isabella to make a family of six.

  1. Thanks for featuring the Danish Royal Family...love this family particularly Isabella. Can't wait for the personality of the twins to show

  2. Isabella was absolutely delightful at the christening, although you could see Mary trying to discreetly tell her to calm down a couple of times. I wonder if mother and daughter decided together who would wear blue for Vincent and who would wear pink for Josephine.
