Danish Royal Family Christmas Cards

With under two weeks to go until Christmas, for today’s post we are jumping over to Denmark to take a look at some of the Christmas cards the Danish Royals have sent out over the years.

We’re especially focused on Princess Mary and Prince Frederick, but a few other royals have snuck in, too.


This is the earliest card unearthed so far. If there is a card from 2004, I’m guessing it was a wedding picture. 2005 featured baby Christian and Ziggy, Mary and Fred’s adorable border collie.

2006 was a walk in the park…

And this photo for 2007 is a bit of a baffling choice to me. Where are they? Is that the hull of a ship under construction? Are they in some sort of fort? There must be an obvious explanation and they all look great, including little Princess Isabella who was born in April that year.


For 2008, it looks like they chose the white background package at Sears. Little Prince Christian takes the cake with that smile.


In 2009, Ziggy made another appearance in this autumnal stroll.

This picture from 2010’s card is my fave. Looks like they were all on holiday somewhere exotic, or maybe they just have cool upholstery on some massive cushions in their house?


And then there were four! The card for 2012 featured Christian, Isabella, and twins Josephine and Vincent.

That same year, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie sent out this hanging out on the floor picture.

Fun fact: Prince Joachim is a partner in a large farming business that includes a Christmas tree section at the Schackenborg Castle estate farm. They export 1,500 to 2,000 trees a year to Hong Kong (source).He has also been known to send a tree to his ex-wife Countess Alexandra as a gift.

Here’s a pic of Alexandra with their sons in 2007 on their way to a Christmas concert.
