Danish royal children are all grown up at annual visit to summer residence


It”s amazing what difference a year makes.

The children of Princess Mary of Denmark and Princess Marie of Denmark looked all grown-up and on their best behaviour as the Danish royals attended the annual summer holiday photocall.

Last year was all fun and frolics, as the eldest of Princess Marie”s four children Prince Christian embraced his role as big brother and pulled his little twin siblings Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine in a truck around the garden while Princess Isabella led the way.

This year the siblings, and their cousins, remained close to their parents and grandparents as the pictures were taken in the grounds of Grasten Castle, the summer residence for the Danish royals.

Wearing an on-trend green maxi kaftan with sheer panels, Princess Mary looked stylish and cool, as she was joined by her husband Crown Prince Frederick, and their children.

Queen Margrethe II and her husband, Henrik Prince Consort of Denmark were spotted exiting a golf buggy, and also in attendance was Princess Marie, her husband Prince Joachim, and their children, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena.

As the temperatures continue to soar across Europe, Marie kept cool in a short printed dress with heeled sandals, while Margrethe wore a smart white shirt dress with a vintage belt.

The men wore shorts and shirts, while the youngsters looked casual in shorts and summer dresses.

It”s the second time in weeks that the Danish royal family have come together in celebration.

It was a pure family affair in June as Prince Henrik celebrated his 80th birthday.

The celebrant and his wife Queen Margrethe II were joined by their sons, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim, and their eight grandchildren.

The Danish clan opted to ring in the milestone birthday in Henrik”s native France by travelling to Château de Cayx, their royal residence located in the southern wine district of Cahors.
