The new photo of Princess Isabella to mark her 13th birthday
Princess Isabella of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat, was born on 21 April 2007 at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen. She was the first girl born into the Danish royal family since the birth of her grand-aunt, Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, in 1946. Isabella is currently third in line to the throne after her father, Crown Prince Frederik, and her older brother, Prince Christian. She is also the older sibling of nine-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
It is thought that the Danish royal children have returned to school after the country began lifting its lockdown measures amid the coronavirus pandemic. Crown Prince Frederik documented his trip to the barbers on Monday with before and after photos of his haircut on the royal family's Instagram account. He captioned the post: "I'm probably not the only one who today has been to the hairdresser. Fortunately, it is now again possible for hairdressers and other small businesses and shops to open on top of a long shutdown."

He added: "I would like to thank everyone for being so ready to change and for helping to keep the wheels going for a period that requires a lot from us all."
Crown Prince Frederik, his wife Crown Princess Mary and their four children were living in Switzerland at the start of the year but returned to Denmark in early March after the coronavirus outbreak. They had been living in the country while their children Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine were studying at the Lemania-Verbier International School. The young royals will continue their education at Tranegårdskolen in Gentofte, now that public institutions have reopened.
