The Danish court announced that Princess Marie gave birth to a princess at 8.27 this morning.
The girl weighed 2930 grams and is 49 cm long.
“She is beautiful. Healthy and in good shape and that’s the most important thing for us. I am also very satisfied with having a daughter,” Prince Joachim told the press after the birth.
There will be a 21 shot salute fired at Kronborg and Sixtus in Copenhagen at 12. In addition, the official Denmark will hoist the flags at that point.
The royal guard will also switch to their “Blue Duty Gala” wear.
Traditionally, her name will not be released before the christening.
