Over 800 miles away in Denmark there is another group of royal twins. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and her husband Crown Prince Frederik have nine year old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

The adorable siblings embraced their dad’s love of sport, and their mom shared snaps and images on Instagram of the twins on the grounds of Gråsten Palace. She added the caption: “My husband’s love for tennis has been passed on to everyone.” So cute!


The Danish royal family includes twins

The twins are pupils at Tranegårdskolen in Hellerup, north of Copenhagen, along with their other siblings, as Mary and Frederik are also parents to Prince Christian, 14, and Princess Isabella, 13.

With Kate Middleton not ruling out baby number four and admitting to feeling “broody” lately, and Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice on baby number one, you never know there’s still a chance for us to welcome twins in the British royal family!
