Wrapped up warmly against the cold in a cream cap and bootees, Denmark's Prince Christian looked eager to take in the sights and sounds of Copenhagen's streets on a recent shopping expedition with his mum Mary.
Strapped to his mother's front in a comfortable baby carrier, the royal youngster was well placed to observe the comings and goings of the Danish capital. The 34-year-old princess had also tucked the folds of her elegant beige shawl around her little prince to protect him from the bitter weather.
The outing was one of the first sightings of five-month-old Christian since his christening in January amid the splendour of Christianborg Palace Chapel with Europe's leading royals in attendance.
Although life hasn't exactly been quiet in the intervening period as the little one also accompanied his parents, Frederik and Mary on an official visit to the German state of Schleswig-Holstein in February. The trip was one of a number of engagements, which signalled the end of "maternity leave" for hard-working Mary.
