According to Denmark’s Image magazine, the proud parents are getting to know their little offspring, and are enjoying every minute of it.

“Right now we need to get to know each other,” said Princess Marie.

“We must learn to know his personality, his habits and needs. But he is very cute and reasonably easy. And he sleeps well and eats well, so we are just fortunate.”

According to Princess Marie is everything went very well after the birth. And being a mother has fully lived up to her expectations.

“It’s fantastic. But also very different. Everything changes suddenly, but of course the greatest experience in life. And we are very, very excited.”

The Danish media is speculating that the christening of the little prince would be either late July or early August. This way, the entire royal family would be in the country and be available to go to the event.

But despite the need the celebrate, the couple spent the day doing their royal duties, something Felipe promised they would do when they wed five years earlier.

“The commitment that today Letizia and I have assumed, transcends of the merely personal commitment. Since that I was a child, I’ve been very aware of my institutional responsibilities and the loyalty to the King and the sense of duty has guided my life. So I’m happy that, from today, Letizia joins me to this project with conviction and responsibility… Your Majesty, you can be sure that we will always think about Spain and that all our common life will be devote to the well-being of the Spaniards,” Felipe said during his wedding speech.

So, the two lived up to their devotion to duty by attending the Caja Madrid Foundation ceremony, in which 200 postgraduate students received scholarships to study abroad.

Caja Madrid is something that interest the Prince of Asturias. Since 2000, 677 students have been able to study at major universities in the United States, Canada and Europe.

During the ceremony, Felipe admitted that he still felt the same love, the same enthusiasm and commitment to Letizia as he did when they stood at the altar at Almuneda Cathedral.
