Prince Nikolai of Denmark at 17

Prince Nikolai of Denmark, Count of Monpezat, is seventeen today

When I was 17, it was a very good year...the seventeenth birthday of Prince Nikolai of Denmark is something of a milestone and not just for him. Because as is clear in new photos taken by Steen Brogaard, the eldest grandchild of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark is suddenly very grown up indeed.

Nikolai of Denmark was born on August 28th 1999 in Copenhagen, the first child of Prince Joachim and his first wife, Alexandra, and the first member of a new generation of the royal house ruled by Margrethe. At birth he was third in line to the throne and guaranteed the succession into another generation. Today, with four younger cousins, he is seventh and concentrating on his studies. But these images, released to mark his birthday, are a reminder that Nikolai is almost an adult with a whole new life ahead of him. When the first grandchild reaches eighteen, it's another chapter for their grandparents too. Happy Birthday, Nikolai.
