Danish royals kick off their summer holidays with photocall

The Danish royals have officially kicked off their summer holiday with a fun family photocall. The family came together for the annual snapshot as the children started their school break and the adults commenced a break from their packed engagement schedule.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark was on top sartorial form, showing off her boho chic look in a printed teal summer dress. The matriarch led her four children – Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine – out onto the front steps of Grasten Castle, the family's official summer residence.

Mary's husband Crown Prince Frederik and her parents-in-law Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik made up the royal party. Notably absent from the gathering were Frederik's younger brother Prince Joachim, Joachim's wife Princess Marie and the couple's two children.

The royals looked to be in high spirits as they grouped together for their precious family moments to be caught on camera.

Mary and Frederik's children looked adorable, standing alongside their parents in their smartest outfits.

Their eldest son, ten-year-old Prince Christian, and their youngest son Prince Vincent, five, wore matching blue shorts and crisp shirts, while the girls donned their prettiest summer frocks.

Vincent proved the perfect gentleman, as he picked a flower for his mom and ran over and presented it to her.

Meanwhile his twin sister Josephine, the youngest of the brood, sported a cheeky smile at the camera as she stood in front of her grandfather.

The family will now spend the next few weeks at their summer residence, which is located in the Jutland region of southern Denmark. They will most likely be joined by Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, and the couple's children, at a later date.

The palace has been used by the royals as a summer residence since 1935, when it was handed over from the Danish state to King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid.
