In addition to being Queen Elizabeth’s Accession Day, today is also the birthday of Princess Marie of Denmark. (Yes, the two Danish royal sisters-in-law have birthdays one day apart.) Marie turns 36 today.

Being the wife of the younger son, and not hitting a milestone birthday, Marie is getting considerably less birthday love than her sister-in-law; no announcement banner on Kongehuset.dk, no interview with the Danish media, and no photoshoot. Of course, Marie is also still on maternity leave after the birth of Lillepigen, so that could also be part of it.

Regardless, happy birthday, Your Royal Highness!
