Danish former prince, who appeared likely to someday become king until the constitution was changed in 1953 to allow females to inherit the crown, placing his branch of the dynasty behind that of his cousin Princess Margrethe and her two younger sisters. He later gave up his princely rank and his rights to the throne in order to marry a commoner. However, through his mother, he is a legitimate descendant of King George II of Great Britain, and retains a place in line to the British throne.
He is the younger son of Hereditary Prince Knud by his wife and first cousin, Princess Caroline-Mathilde of Denmark.
Sy Scholfield quotes from The Times (London, England), 19 Feb 1940, p. 5: "gave birth on Friday night to a son." A time of 9pm is speculative.
