At 8:25 am on Tuesday, January 24, Princess Marie and Prince Joachim welcomed a daughter. The new Princess is tenth in line to the throne. As is tradition for the Danish Royals, the new princess’ name will not be revealed until her christening when she is three months old. The couple also has a son together named Prince Henrik. He was born in 2009.
