Growing up fast! Princess Mary's twins Vincent and Josephine turn 8

Growing up fast! Princess Mary's twins Vincent and Josephine turn 8

Crown Princess Mary has revealed her knack for photography again by sharing a portrait of her youngest children on their birthday.

Yesterday marked twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine of Denmark’s eighth birthday and to celebrate the milestone, Princess Mary shared three new photos to Instagram.

The photographs were posted on the official Instagram account of the Danish palace on Tuesday.

One of the three photos show the twin siblings posing side by side in the countryside, with the remaining two being individual snaps.

The portraits came complete with a caption, saying: “Today, D.K.H. Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine turn eight years old, and on the occasion of their birthday, the Crown Prince Couple has the pleasure to share a number of new pictures of your Royal Highnesses.”

The post has already racked up close to 27,000 likes and hundreds of well wishes from fans around the world.

The children have plans to celebrate their birthday privately, surrounded by close friends and family at their home in Copenhagen.

The pair are the youngest children of Princess Mary, who she shares with Crown Prince Frederik. The couple are parents to another son, Prince Christian, 13, and a daughter Princess Isabella, 11.

Happy birthday Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine! Can you believe they are eight already?
