Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine of Denmark, the children of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, are celebrating their ninth birthday today, and as expected, the Royal Danish House released new images of the twins in celebration.

Four photographs were released, all of which were taken by Crown Princess Mary over the past few months. Two images show the twins cuddled up together while a third image features Vincent with his two older siblings. The fourth photo is of Princess Josephine and her horse.

As per Danish royal tradition, the names of the twins were not revealed until their christening on 14 April 2011.

All four children are studying abroad this semester in Switzerland at Lemania-Verbier International School in Banges. Crown Princess Mary is staying with her children in Switzerland while they are in school, and the Crown Prince will travel back and forth between there and Denmark for his official duties.
