UPDATE from our contributor Kirrily:

Denmark’s Princess Mary has left hospital with her son, the new prince. Mary, along with husband Crown Prince Frederik, is clearly delighted with the arrival of her first child, "I am feeling wonderful – it’s been a truly wonderful life experience … Words can’t describe how happy one feels."

The family had a five-minute photo session with the waiting media, before walking to their car, placing their son in his capsule before driving home – just like normal parents. Mary confirmed that she was breastfeeding, and that her husband had been a great assistance during the birth, "He was actually a big help – I could not have managed without him." And while no official name has been announced Mary said she and Frederik have been calling him lots of different names in the meantime, with one nickname being revealed as ‘Bairn’  – which stems from Mary’s Scottish ancestry, Scottish babies are often referred to as wee bairn.

There is also video footage of the new family leaving the hospital.

I think the little Prince of Dermark is very very cute. And I think he will be as handsome as his fater. What a great royal family!
