Hanover and Prussia

How many intermarriages have there been, between these two houses throughout European royal history? I realize that one has to make allowances for the fact that Hanover has not always been a royal dynasty. Regardless of exact status, I'm interested in knowing of notable examples of unions involving it and royal Prussia, within (say) the last three centuries.
I know that they were common occurrences in the 18th century: the Electress Sophia of Hanover had both a daughter and granddaughter (both named Sophia, like herself) become queens of Prussia.
