Given that the Crown Royals in Denmark are:
a) Saab owners, and
b) one half Tasmanian
…. it seems appropriate to note the birth of Princess Mary’s twins – a prince and princess – who made their royal journey through the royal birth canal, arriving earlier today to be given a smack on their royal bums to get life started.
Mum and babies are apparently all well. As you can see from the video still-shot of Fredrik, below, the bubs were approximately the size of a juvenile salmon.
Names have not been chosen yet, but given they were born on Elvis’ birthday, there’s a high chance that one might be named after The (other) King. Last time Princess Mary was back here in Hobart, she promised me she’d name the next one as Swade, so I guess there’ll be some royal therapy bills whilst a little girl adjusts to being called Princess Elvis.
The bigger question, now, is what are they going to do with the royal carriage? Below is a picture of the current royal whip – a Saab 9-3 Sportcombi – and yes, newspaper reports say Mary was conveyed to the hospital, safe and sound in the Danish winter, in this very car.
Hmmm, pre-2008 model. Looks like they were due for an update…..
I’d like to suggest that the Saab prototyping people get to work on a rear facing seat for the new Saab 9-5 wagon. It’d be a great way to make a splash for the car in the Scandinavian marketplace. Just image pictures of Fred and Mary loading up Christian and Isabella in the rear-facing seat whilst Swade and Elvis are tucked in safely behind mum and dad.
It’s a marketers dream!
Again, SU congratulations to the Danish/Tassie royals.
