What the Hanoverians knew

As others have pointed out, Thyra's situation could be kept a secret limited to a few persons only so long. Sooner or later, her whole family would find out -- as would the European royal courts: it's likely that those who initially sought her hand in marriage were unaware of her past.
I'm just curious as to when the house of Hanover knew -- and especially, what the king and queen thought of their prospective daughter-in-law. It's likely that Crown Prince Ernst August was involved in a relationship with the princess and possibly engaged, as of King Georg V's death.
