Three adorable portraits of the royal twins, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent of Denmark, have been released to celebrate their sixth birthday.
The photos, which were taken by Pernille Rohde, show the Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik’s two youngest children smiling for the camera in sweet separate portraits. The little prince wore a pale shirt while the princess wore an embroidered white top with her blonde hair in a braid. In the third photo, the brother and sister are posing together for a black-and-white snap with Prince Vincent’s arm around his sister. Fans of the Danish royal family were quick to discuss the new photos, with one writing: “Congratulations to the two kids hope you have a great day,” while another added: “Happy birthday to the sweet two… beautiful pictures!”

The twins were born just 26 minutes apart at the Copenhagen University Hospital on 8 January 2011. Prince Vincent is the elder of the pair, and the two are currently fourth and fifth in line to the Danish throne. The twins recently enjoyed the Christmas period with their older brother and sister, 11-year-old Prince Christian and nine-year-old Princess Isabella after photos were released which showed the four children decorating the Christmas tree at the Amalienborg Palace.
