Christmas greetings from the Danish Crown Prince Family

The Crown Prince Family of Denmark has released a video and several photos in celebration ahead of Christmas.

On the Danish monarchy’s official website, a message reads, “A Merry Christmas greeting from the whole Crown Prince Family.”

The video features Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary with their four children: Prince Christian (13), Princess Isabella (11), Prince Vincent (7), and Princess Josephine (7). The family is seen making and decorating gingerbread cookies at their home in Amalienborg’s Frederick VIII’s Palace in Copenhagen.

The one and a half minute video shows the family enjoying time together with their beloved dog and later eating the gingerbread cookies they had made together. Princess Isabella decorated her star gingerbread cookie in blue, while her brother, Prince Vincent decorated his heart-shaped cookie in red.

At one point, the Crown Prince is seen sneaking a cookie while the others were decorating, and later, the Crown Princess jokes with her husband by rubbing icing on his nose.

The Crown Prince Family will be celebrating Christmas this year in Denmark with the rest of the Danish Royal Family. The Danish royals will be celebrating at Marselisborg Palace.

Crown Princess Mary’s family from Australia has also come into town for the holidays.

Every few years, the Crown Prince Family travels to Australia to celebrate Christmas Down Under with Mary’s father, stepmother and siblings.

The Danish Crown Prince Family is not the only royal family to release a Christmas video this year as the Crown Princess Family of Sweden continued their tradition of releasing a festive video for the holidays just a few days ago.
