I suppose Princess Cecilie was a sister of the Duke of Edinburgh, if she was the daughter of Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg?
She was. Apparently, Philip was very affected by her death, naturally.
Cecilie and Georg Donatus were 1st cousins once removed descended from Grand Duke Louis of Hesse and Princess Alice of Britain
Louis & Alice->Victoria->Alice, Princess Andrew->Cecilie
Louis & Alice->Ernest Louis->Georg Donatus
