Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and her family have received the ultimate Christmas gift after their dog Grace welcomed two puppies.

The pups appeared on the family's Instagram with photos taken by Mary's youngest son Prince Vincent, 10.

"Here on the fourth Sunday in Advent, we would like to introduce two new residents at home," the post read. "A little over six weeks ago, Grace became the mother of two of the cutest puppies... to the great joy of us all."

The adorable brown and white border collie pups posed beside Christmas decorations for their first portraits.

Grace joined the family in 2017 after Mary and her husband Crown Prince Frederik's first dog Ziggy died. Grace is from the same family as Ziggy.

Ziggy was also a border collie and had been a wedding gift to the couple and lived for 12 years.

Prince Christian, 16, Princess Isabella, 14, and Vincent's twin sister Princess Josephine, 10, will no doubt all be ecstatic over the arrival of the puppies, as Mary is currently isolated after testing positive for Covid last week.

While she is still in the palace, she is keeping away from Frederik and the children.

"The Crown Princess has today, Wednesday 15 December 2021, tested positive for COVID-19," a statement on the palace’s Instagram account read.

"Her Royal Highness stays in isolation in Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg".

While the palace did not update royal fans on how the princess is feeling, they did say no other members of the family have tested positive.

It’s likely Princess Mary will be out of isolation at Christmas, as at the moment, Denmark imposes a 10-day quarantine rule.

In December 2020, Princess Mary’s son, Prince Christian, tested positive for Covid following an outbreak at his school.

The 15-year-old at the time had not been in contact with anyone outside of the royal family, and his mother Mary, dad Prince Frederik and his three siblings Princess Isabella, 13, and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, nine went into isolation as a precaution.
