New images shared as Denmark’s Princess Isabella turns 14

The Danish Royal House has shared new images of Princess Isabella, the second child of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, in honour of her 14th birthday today.

The three of photos were taken by her mother and feature the royal in the outdoors.

On 21 April 2007, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark gave birth to her and Crown Prince Frederik’s second child. In October 2005, they had a son, Prince Christian, but this time, they had a baby girl at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen weighing 3350 gr. A 21-gun salute was fired the next day in celebration of the birth of a new princess.

Following the tradition of the Danish Royal Family, her name was not announced until her christening on 1 July 2007 in the chapel of Fredensborg Palace. Her name was announced then as Her Royal Highness Princess Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe. Her middle name of Henrietta was given to her in memory of her late maternal grandmother. Of course, her middle name of Margrethe was in honour of her paternal grandmother, the Queen of Denmark.

Princess Isabella’s godparents were named as Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark, Christian Buchwald, Peter Heering, Nadine Johnston and Marie Louise Skeel.

The first granddaughter for Queen Margrethe and the late Prince Henrik, she is third in the line of succession to the Danish throne behind her father and elder brother, Prince Christian. She has two younger siblings, twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

The young royal attends school at Tranegårdsskolen in Gentofte with her three siblings. She currently resides in the Chancellery at Fredensborg Palace.
