After a short stay, HRH Princess Marie left Rigshospitalet today with her newborn baby daughter, accompanied by her beaming husband HRH Prince Joachim. In the late morning on Friday, the Prince and Princess walked through the lobby and were greeted by throngs of media and folks gathered to wish the family well. The couple answered questions from the media and took the name suggestion of “Sleeping Beauty” with a laugh as the baby slept through the whole event. She will, of course, be named at her christening in a few months. Other comments were around who the baby looks like; Prince Joachim said the baby resembled his wife, while Princess Marie said it was too soon to tell. The couple described her as having “a good appetite and a good appetite for life”.
Now Princess Marie and her newborn will most likely retreat out of sight for short while. The baby will be home to get to know her big brothers Princes Henrik, Nikolai and Felix. HH Prince Henrik is reportedly hoping that the baby will eventually want to play cars with him. The family will spend Friday night at their apartment in Amallienborg before they head home to Schackenborg Castle.
