Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark have relocated with their family for the summer, the royal court has confirmed.

In a statement, the palace said that the couple and their four children, Prince Christian, 15, Princess Isabella, 13 and ten-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, moved to the Chancellery at Fredensborg Castle over the weekend and will reside there throughout the coming months.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary lived at the Chancellery when they first got married in May 2004, and used it as their primary residence until Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg in Copenhagen was renovated.

Now the family use the Chancellery as their residence in the summer and live at Amalienborg during the winter.

The Chancellery building dates back to 1731, but in more recent times it was home to Crown Prince Frederik's grandmother, Queen Ingrid, until her death in 2000. Queen Ingrid was the late King Frederick IX's consort.

Last week, Crown Prince Frederik's younger brother, Prince Joachim and his wife Princess Marie opened up for the first time about the prince's stroke in 2020.

In an interview with Hjernesagen's member magazine, Princess Marie, 45, said: "It was so close to a tragedy that could have changed our lives forever."

Prince Joachim, 51, underwent emergency surgery for a blood clot on his brain at the University Hospital of Toulouse in France last July.

He told the magazine: "I have experienced how Marie immediately approached the situation and that with her resourceful interventions and actions, she was the one who led the way until I was handed over to the ambulance drivers in Cahors and sent on to Toulouse. She was amazing! She went into soldier mode... I know that with Marie I have a resourceful, loving, caring and safe support."
