Christian, 4th Fürst Bentheim und Steinfurt, celebrated 95 years today and will be the second oldest male descendant of King Christian IX of Denmark (1818-1906). The oldest is Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
His maternal grandmother was Princess Louise of Denmark, oldest daughter of Frederik (VIII) and Louise, King and Queen of Denmark 1906-1912.
I believe the last time he has been seen in public was in 2017 at the funeral of Prince Richard zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, husband of Princess Benedikte of Denmark.
