The Danish royals have helped celebrate Christmas in space.

Ahead of the Crown Prince Family’s travels to Aarhus for Christmas, Crown Prince Frederik called astronaut Andreas Mogensen at the International Space Station to wish him a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

The connection on the call was unstable, but the Crown Prince spent several minutes chatting with the astronaut. His children, Princes Christian and Vincent and Princesses Isabella and Josephine, even joined the conversation with Mogensen, giving them a tour of the International Space Station.

The call was the last door on the Danish Royal House’s digital Advent calendar, where each day, they’ve revealed bits of their holiday celebrations in Denmark and abroad.

The Royal Family will celebrate Christmas at Marselisborg Palace in Aarhus. Queen Margrethe will be joined by Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent, as well as Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, Count Henrik and Countess Athena, who have travelled from the United States. Prince Joachim’s older son, Count Felix, will also be in Aarhus; however, Count Nikolai will spend the holiday abroad.
