Prince George Valdemar of Denmark

I am wondering about Prince George Valdemar Carl Axel of Denmark (1920-1986), a great-grandson of King Christian IX. In 1950, he married a minor British noble and divorcée, Anne, Viscountess Anson, née Bowes-Lyon, a niece of Queen Elizabeth of the UK (later the Queen Mother). It seems unlikely that this would be with the consent of the King of Denmark, but if that were the case, he would have been stripped of the title Prince of Denmark, reduced to being a Count of Rosenborg, like his brother and other relatives who married commoners.

It was a moot point, really, as he was (or would have been) removed from the line of succession to the Danish throne in 1953 anyway when it was limited to descendants of King Christian X. Also, he had no children to inherit either the non-dynastic title Count of Rosenborg or the dynastic (but non-successive) title Prince of Denmark.

So was he a Count of Rosenborg, or a Prince of Denmark (without succession rights after 1953) until his death?

I believe that the king wanted to demote him to Count of Rosenborg but changed his mind. Anne was a niece of Queen Elizabeth and people supposedly thought that if a Bowes-Lyon was good enough for the king of England it is good enough for a minor Danish prince.
