Quelle jolie minette! Princess Athena is cute as a button! Adorable, contemplative, and from this photo session, an old soul. Looks so much like Maman! Oh, those Schackenborg children are beauties. What a lovely smocked Liberty print dress, too, in such a pretty colour. Charming nursery in the background, so this little honey bunny has a sweet and safe environment in which to grow and learn. Marie is very loving and engaged with her baby, what a gorgeous sight, this mother-daughter bond, such pure love. A total and complete 180 from the bogan gargoyles over at Amalienborg with their out of touch parents, ratty gray clothing, and ever-rotating fleet of nannies. Cheers, Athena! You won the Danish, royal, and family lotteries.
