Princess Isabella enjoys quality time with granddad Henrik

02 JUNE 2012

The image couldn't be sweeter; little Princess Isabella of Denmark snuggles up to her beloved granddad, Prince Henrik, raising a smile from him.




The royal patriarch was enjoying some quality time with his grandchildren during a day out at Copenhagen Zoo.

Also along for the fun was Isabella's brother Christian. With every passing year, the little duo look more and more like mini versions of their parents, Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Mary.



Completing the royal party were Henrik's eldest grandchildren, Nikolai and Felix, his son Joachim's boys from his first marriage. 

Their day out allowed Joachim time to spend with his new  baby daughter Athena , whose mother is his second wife Marie.  

During the fun-filled visit, the youngsters zipped around the zoo, and climbed on the back of the elephant statues for a photo.

Later, they watched as their granddad gave a speech to mark the 50th anniversary of the resident elephants' arrival from Thailand.
