The translated caption reads, “The twins were born today ten years ago at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen 26 minutes apart. Prince Vincent at 10.30 and Princess Josephine at 10.56. Their Royal Highnesses were baptized in Holmen’s Church on April 14 and were named Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda.”

The Danish royal family also shared solo shots of the young royals. In the photo, Prince Vincent is wearing a simple white button-down shirt.

As for Princess Josephine, she’s donning a yellow checkered pantsuit, along with a matching bow in her hair.

Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine are the youngest children of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary. They have two older siblings: Prince Christian (15) and Princess Isabella (13), who are ahead of them in the line of succession. Their dad is the heir to the Danish throne, which means he’ll take over the monarchy when Queen Margrethe II steps down (or passes away).

Sending lots of birthday love to Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
