The Danish Royal Family Just Grew by 2 (Canine) Members—and We Have Pics

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark recently added two new members to the family…but it’s not what you think.

Last month, the royal couple announced that their dog, Grace, welcomed two new border collie puppies that are now part of the family. In honor of their arrival, Frederik and Mary arranged a holiday-themed photoshoot for the fluffy four-legged friends.

The slideshow features three different photos. The first shows the two pups sitting in what appears to be a wooden box. The next pic is a close-up shot of the new family members, followed by a collage of all three images.

The translated caption reads, “Here on the fourth Sunday in Advent, we would like to introduce two new residents at home. A little over six weeks ago, Grace became the mother of two of the cutest puppies… to the great joy of us all.” The message is referring to the family’s dog, who they welcomed back in 2017.

They simply signed the post, “The Crown Prince’s family.”

Prince Frederik is the oldest son of Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik, making him first in line to the Danish throne. He and his wife met in Australia before tying the knot in 2004. They now share four children together: Prince Christian (16), Princess Isabella (14) and 10-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

Let the puppy adventures begin.
