Twins in the Royal House
This week, Denmark’s CP (Crown Princess) Mary gave birth to twins bringing the tally of royal children up to four. So far no pictures have been released yet but rumors have it that Mary is getting “royal treatment” for being allowed to stay in the hospital for five days. I guess this is unheard of due to lack of space and resources in the hospitals. The other news stories related to the event are the fact that Mary’s sister from Tasmania is “secretly” visiting and Prince Henrik, the current queen’s husband, said the twins were ugly. Well, actually he said, “they are very sweet but won’t say they are beautiful!”.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary has given birth to twins — a boy and a girl — the royal court announced Saturday.
The palace said Mary has become the proud mother of “two fine children” at the national Rigshospitalet hospital in Copenhagen. “Both mother and children are doing well,” the court said.
The boy, weighing 5 pounds, 14 ounces (2.7 kilograms) was the first one born Saturday morning, while his sister, weighing 5 pounds, 10 ounces (2.6 kilograms), was delivered 26 minutes later.
The 38-year-old princess was admitted to hospital early Saturday morning, accompanied by her husband Crown Prince Frederik, who was present during the whole labor.
“It’s a miracle,” the smiling father told Danish broadcaster TV2 and other media at the hospital. “It’s two small hearts to keep an eye on.”
Tasmanian-born Mary married the Danish prince in 2004. The couple already have two children, 5-year-old Christian and 3-year-old Isabella.
