Seven's a charm as Prince Christian of Denmark celebrates his birthday

15 OCTOBER 2012

A thundering 21-gun salute back in October 2005 greeted the birth of Denmark's little Prince Christian.

Since then, he has accumulated several years of cute birthday pictures, and the snaps of his seventh are particularly charming.

Proud parents Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Mary released the official images to mark their eldest child's birthday on October 15.

Christian looks all grown up as he takes centre stage in the country photoshoot.

His piercing blue eyes and confident pose are reminiscent of his father Frederik – with whom he shares a strong physical resemblance and destiny as the future king of Denmark.

Birthday photo calls are a much loved tradition for the royal family. Back in May, Christian's sister Isabella was the star of her own shoot when she turned five.

The snaps – taken by her mother Mary – were equally adorable.

With each passing year, the young royals show more and more of their emerging personalities.

At the London 2012 Olympics, Christian had Danish officials in stitches when struck a Usain Bolt pose while the cameras were trained on him.

And little Isabella has already started her own jewellery collection. She received a stunning gold bracelet to mark turning five.

Danish royal tradition states that all of the ladies in the family receive the glittering gift after half a decade.
