Re: Prince Harald of Denmark
Prince Harald would have been my favourite candidate to marry Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands. I think he might have been a better candidate. Not closely related but he was a descendant of King Willem I and being from a small constitutional monarchy would have prepared him better for the Dutch situation than Henry of Mecklenburg-Schwerin had.
The family "look" was further encouraged by cousin to cousin marriage in the next generation as well I feel
Can anybody clarify the titles and styles of his children? [...] Is is true that all were born to the qualification of Highness, with only Princess Caroline-Mathilde getting elevated to Royal Highness? I would imagine that she would have been styled thus, after her marriage in 1933 to her first cousin Prince Knud.
This is all correct.
