Snapper Editorial

The newest members of Denmark's royal family have posed for official portraits, just seven weeks after their birth.

Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Princess Mary welcomed the baby boy and girl at Copenhagen's University Hospital on January 8.

The babies were photographed leaving the hospital six days later in the arms of their parents and have now posed for official portraits in their apartment in Amalienborg Palace.

The twins will be named at their christening on April 14.

Frederik and Mary have two other children, Prince Christian, five, and three-year-old Princess Isabella.
