Even lit­tle roy­als have first-day nerves

Like parents ev­ery­where, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Fred­erik of Den­mark might have shed a tear as they waved their six-year-old twins good­bye on their first day of school. Princess Josephine was all smiles, but Prince Vin­cent seemed a lit­tle un­sure about be­ing put in a class with­out his sis­ter at Tranegård School in Copen­hagen. Mary and Fred­erik are the first Dan­ish royal cou­ple to send their brood to a pub­lic school. Just days later, there was more ex­cite­ment as the fam­ily joined Prince Hen­rik and Queen Mar­grethe to wel­come the royal dachs­hund Til­lia’s eight adorable pup­pies.
