Hope everyone had a Happy Easter and please, let me spice it up with some Danish delight. Last Thursday the world’s most famous royal twins was named in the historic Holmen’s Church in Copenhagen. Until the very end the proud parents Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Crown Princess Mary kept the names to themselves only to reveal the well kept secret at the last moment. The new prince of Denmark is named Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and the new princess of Denmark is named Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda. According to experts, this royal baptism will start a new trend of baby names in Denmark.
