Crown Princess Mary brought her youngest children to her latest royal engagement on Wednesday.

The Danish royal was joined by her 11-year-old twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, as they visited Copenhagen Zoo.

Crown Princess Mary looked elegant in a navy checked coat from British retailer, Hobbs, and a high neck burgundy jumper for her outing, accessorising with a fedora-style hat. Meanwhile, royal siblings Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine wrapped up against the February chill in puffer jackets and beanie hats.
