A gorgeous new stamp of Crown Prince Frederik, Princess Mary and their four children has been released.
The stunning family portrait features the couple’s brood, Prince Christian, 11, Princess Isabella, nine, and five-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
In the special edition stamp, the family are dressed to the nines in traditional costumes of Greenland, a nod to the couple’s first tour abroad as newlyweds.
In the snaps released by Greenland Post on Monday, the picture-perfect group don layers of knits, patterned long-sleeves, and of course, fur-lined boots.

While Frederik kept his look rather simple in a white sweater and black pants, Mary and the kids went crazy with colour!
The Tasmanian-born beauty in particular appeared to sport eye-catching hues from head-to-toe, which would have stood out dramatically had her kids not have tied in her rainbow attire with their own pops of colour.

More snaps from the shoot were released on the Danish palace’s official Facebook page, where the kids can be seen playing about and showing off their sweet family dynamic.
In one endearing shot, brothers Christian and Vincent can be seen gingerly placing their hands on their sister’s shoulders.
Other portraits reveal the relationships between the youngest and oldest siblings – heir to the throne Christian and Isabella’s bond being caring and sweet, while the twins’ boast a sense of cheekiness.

The stamp released by Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, wasn’t just shot for fun, but rather to honour the couple’s 12-and-a-half-year wedding anniversary which falls on November 14th.
"The stamp marks the Crown Prince Couple's copper wedding on November 14th 2016,” a message on the royals' Facebook page read.
“The ceremony in May 2004 took place in Copenhagen Cathedral and the wedding festivities were held at Fredensborg Palace."
