The first-time parents strolled over from their wing of the Fredensborg Palace to the main residence for the family gathering, with a casually-dressed Frederik toting his two-week-old son in a carrycot.

Since the October 15 birth of her first child, fashion and fitness fan Mary has been exercising away from the public eye in the grounds of Fredensborg, where she and her husband occupy The Chancellery.

There are rumours that the newly expanded family is to visit Mary's homeland in the new year, perhaps in February, though Denmark's ambassador to Australia has said no official date has been set.

Australians are keen to congratulate their princess and her little 'kingaroo'. In line with Danish tradition, the future king will not be named until his christening, but is expected to be called Frederik or, more probably, Christian.
