Princess Mary and Prince Frederik have moved from their home in Copenhagen just in time to celebrate the 14th birthday of their eldest daughter Princess Isabella.
The Crown Prince couple – who are also the parents of Prince Christian, 15 and 10-year-old twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine – have moved their royal brood to Fredensborg Palace, a 40-minute 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 in the sprawling grounds of Fredensborg Palace.
The photos have been uploaded to the Royal Family’s official Instagram account, The Danish royal family, on Wednesday April 21, in honor of the Princess’s special day.

Isabella is the eldest daughter of Prince Frederik and Princess Mary. The then seven-year-old princess is pictured on April 8, 2015 in Aarhus, Denmark, along with her Australian-born mother
Fans rushed to send good wishes, with many noting how Isabella has grown into a beautiful young woman almost overnight.
“What a beautiful lady, congratulations,” wrote one woman.
“She’s so beautiful, happy birthday princess!” added one more.
The post revealed that Isabella would celebrate her birthday ‘privately’ with her family in Fredensborg, the most used of the Danish royal residences on the island of Zealand.

In keeping 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 residence of Frederik’s grandmother, Queen Ingrid, before her death in 2000.
Frederik and Mary lived there as newlyweds after their marriage in 2004 until the renovations at Amalienborg Palace were completed in 2010.

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