Just a week after Crown Princess Mary revealed she had COVID-19, the Danish royal family has shared heartwarming news of “two new residents” in their family.

The family announced their two new arrivals – a pair of puppies – through an adorable suite of photos shared on their official Instagram page.

The pups were pictured among Christmas decorations in the series of images, accompanied by a sweet message.

“Here on the fourth Sunday in Advent, we would like to introduce two new residents at home,” the post read.

“A little over six weeks ago, Grace became the mother of two of the cutest puppies… to the great joy of us all. – The Crown Prince’s family.”

Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik, the heir to the Danish throne, first met in Australia and married in 2004. They now share four children: Prince Christian of Denmark, 16, Princess Isabella, 14, and ten-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

In a statement, the palace confirmed that Crown Princess Mary, who is currently isolating at her home, Prince Frederik VII’s Palace in Copenhagen, will continue to isolate in accordance with health guidelines.

Fortunately, the palace has said no other members of the princess’ family have tested positive to the virus since she was infected.

Prince Christian previously tested positive in December 2020, following an outbreak at his school.
