The youngest member of the Danish Royal Family celebrates her 6th birthday on 24 January 2018.
The Danish Royal Court has released a new photo, taken by Keld Navntoft to mark this special milestone.
Her Highness Princess Athena is currently tenth in the line of succession to the Danish throne.
Athena Marguerite Françoise Marie, the youngest child and only daughter of Prince Joachim and his second wife Princess Marie, was born at 8.27 am on 24 January 2012 at Rigshospitalet (Copenhagen University Hospital) in Copenhagen.
The little princess was 49 cm (about 19 inches) in length and weighed in at 2.930 kg (about 6 pounds 7 ounces).
Proud father Prince Joachim had been present throughout the birth.
Princess Athena was christened at the Møgeltønder Church on 20 May 2012, where her older brothers Felix and Henrik were also christened. She was named after her grandmothers and mother.
She has two older brothers, Nikolai and Felix from her father’s first marriage, and an older brother Henrik.
Princess Athena joined her older brother when she started Grade 1 at St Joseph Sisteren’s School in Ordrup on Friday in August 2017, which is close to her home.
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie currently live in Klampenborg, a northern suburb of Copenhagen.
