First official portrait of Princess Mary’s twins

The world's most famous royal twins posed for their first official portrait this week, showing they are as well behaved as they are cute. The Danish royal court released the private photographs from the royal family's photo album yesterday.
The brown-eyed, brunette baby boy and girl were born at Copenhagen's university hospital Rigshospitalet on January 8 and will be named at their christening on April 14. Their parents, Tasmanian-born Princess Mary, 39, and Crown Prince Frederik, 42, posed with the babies for the series of intimate portraits.
The royal family's favoured photographer Steen Brogaard took the photos on Tuesday at Mary and Frederik's new apartment at the Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen. According to Brogaard, 49, the twins were "perfectly behaved" and did not cry. "They were very beautiful and were wide awake, very aware and looking at everything," Brogaard said. "They also smiled a lot."
He said the family photographs were among his favourite portraits he has taken of the Danish royals. "It's clear from the photographs what kind of father Prince Frederik is," Brogaard said. "He was very happy and proud of the twins and he could not stop smiling. Princess Mary was very happy and relaxed as a mother. She did not appear overwhelmed by two babies."
The babies have had two minor health scares since their birth, with the boy treated for jaundice and the girl rushed to emergency and suffering from a bad cold. The twins have been at home at the Copenhagen palace for six weeks and have been smothered in attention from their siblings Prince Christian, 5, and Princess Isabella, 3. The laidback family were recently spotted bike riding and walking their dog by Copenhagen's waterfront.
Announcing their birth last month, Prince Frederik described the twins as a "miracle times two". "We're now processing the positive aftermath of becoming parents of twins," he said. "We could not be more happy. They're beautiful."
