On May 26 2024, King Frederik celebrated his 56th birthday – his first as the King of Denmark.

And it looks like the birthday boy took a day off from driving around Amalienborg Palace. On this day, his eldest son Christian assumed the role of chauffeur, with Vincent in the back.

Meanwhile, Queen Mary was all smiles as she drove the second vehicle; her eldest daughter Isabella rode up front with Josephine in the back.

On May 26th, the family was photographed waving to thousands of well-wishers as they stepped out together in celebration of King Frederik’s 56th birthday.

The full family is rarely spotted all together for occasions like this, making the moment even more special.

Queen Margrethe also joined her grandchildren, son, and daughter-in-law – huge smiles adorning all their faces.

On May 20, the family competed in the Royal Run which takes place every spring in Denmark. King Frederik and Queen Mary have been regular participants since its inception in 2018.

Crown Prince Christian, Princess Josephine, Princess Isabella, and Prince Vincent posed for photos following their participation in the activities.

Royal watchers were quick to take to the comments section of the Instagram post to point out how grown up the children are!

“Omg, the twins have grown up,” one person wrote.

“It’s crazy how much Princess Isabella looks like King Frederik,” another pointed out.

Another said: “Beautiful siblings. The twins have so grown up.”
