Proud new mum Crown Princess Mary has allowed a sneak peek into the newest snaps in the Danish royal family album.
Official photos of newborn “mini Mary” at home with Australian-born mum, dad Crown Prince Frederik and brother Prince Christian were released by the palace last night.
Photographer Steen Brogaard said the young prince couldn’t wait to show off his younger sister to the camera.
“I asked where the baby was, and he said straight away ‘This is the baby’, and showed me. I’m sure he loves her already,” Mr Brogaard said.
“She’s a very nice little princess, she behaved well. She is beautiful. The whole family is beautiful.”
The photographer said he’d been nervous before meeting the newest member of the Danish royal family, born on April 21.
“You have to be nervous on such an occasion. But it was excellent,” he said of the rare royal photo shoot.
One snap shows a grinning Prince Christian playing with his younger sister, while another shows the young princess nicknamed “lille pige” – Danish for Little Girl – sleeping soundly with her tongue poking out slightly.
The newborn princess will not formally be named until her christening on July 1, in keeping with Danish tradition.
The photos were taken over the weekend at the royal family’s home in Fredensborg, on the outskirts of Copenhagen.
This family is beautiful and the way Prince Christian looks at his sister is adorable.
