Happy birthday to Princess Isabella!

Today is the first birthday of Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe, Princess to Denmark.
Some photos from her first year, including being signed into the line of succession by the Foreign Minister Per Stig Møller and Queen Margrethe's and Prince Henrik's 40th wedding anniversary:

Jyllands Posten 'I dag er det prinsessens fødselsdag' - Today it's the Princess' birthday (by Else Boelskifte)
The little princess Isabella celebrates her one year birthday today at home in Kancellihuset.
The Crown Prince arrived straight home from Miami in Florida for his daughter Princess Isabella's first birthday today.
This was after a top spot as number 4 of 33 in the Farr 40 World Championships in sailing.
The Crown Prince participated as skipper on his sponsored boat "Nanoq" with a crew which is half professional.
Prinsess Isabella will be celebrated this afternoon at home in Kancellihuset in Fredensborg by family, friends and their children, and of course also by her one and a half year older big brother, Prince Christian.
The princess is still looked after at home by her parents and two nurses, but if she follows in her big brother's footsteps she will start at the Queen Louise local day nursery in about six months time which Prince Christian attends.
The Princess was born at the University Hospital of Copenhaguen without complications and christened on July 1st in Fredensborg Palace Church.
One of her godparents was Crown Princess Mathilde af Belgium, who gave birth to her fourth child [a girl] last week.
Isabella is Spanish for Elisabeth
*, and Denmark has earlier had a queen, who was originally called Isabella, but changed her name to Elisabeth when she was married off as 14-year to King Christian II in 1515. Isabella had grown up in current day Belgium and she was of the Hapsburg family...
* Sorry JP, but this is incorrect. Isabel is the Spanish version of the name Elizabeth/Elisabeth. Isabella is the Italian version.
