Princess Mary and Prince Frederik have moved out of their home in Copenhagen just in time to celebrate their eldest daughter Princess Isabella’s 14th birthday.
The Crown Prince couple – who are also parents to Prince Christian, 15, and 10-year-old twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine – have relocated their royal brood to Fredensborg Palace, 40 minutes’ drive north of the Danish capital, for the summer.
Mary, 49, and Fred, 52, marked Isabella’s latest milestone by releasing three new portraits of the teenage princess, ‘taken in the spring sun’ at Chancellery House on the extensive grounds of Fredensborg Palace.
The photos were uploaded to the royal family’s official Instagram account, Det Danske Kongehus, on Wednesday, April 21, in honour of the princess’ special day.

Fans rushed to send well-wishes, with many remarking how Isabella has blossomed into a stunning young woman almost overnight.
‘What a beautiful lady, congratulations,’ one woman wrote.
‘She is so beautiful, happy birthday Princess!’ added another.
The post revealed Isabella would be celebrating her birthday ‘privately’ with her family at Fredensborg, the most-used of the Danish royal residences located on the island of Zealand.

In accordance with tradition, the family-of-six will spend the warmer months at Chancellery House, which holds a special place in the hearts of Denmark’s future king and queen.
It was the private home of Frederik’s late grandmother, Queen Ingrid, before her death in 2000.
Frederik and Mary lived there as newlyweds after their 2004 wedding until renovations were completed at Amalienborg Palace in 2010.

Their wedding reception was also held on the grounds of Fredensborg Palace.
Princess Isabella’s grandmother, Queen Margrethe, also marked her 81st birthday at Chancellery House on April 16.
The next event on the Danish royal agenda is Prince Christian’s confirmation, scheduled for May 15 at Fredensborg Palace Church where his younger sister Isabella was christened 10 years earlier.
