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.
At this stage, I'm not ready to believe that there was a "situation" with Thyra. Nobody has produced any evidence that this story pre-dates 1975 - one hundred years after it supposedly happened.
No evidence means no relationship, no child, and no scandal - just a writer being "creative".
