Queen Victoria is related to most of the European royal households. Can't really think of ones she's not related to.

Try Princess Alexandra as their oldest daughter and child.

What are you talking about? Princess Alexandra who?

All I said was they are related to the Greek-danish Royals through Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, who is the youngest daughter of King Fredrick IX, thus a younger sister of the current reigning Queen Margarethe of Denmark. Again, Ingrid of Sweden is the common ancestor. Also through Ingrid, they are related to the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg royals, through Ingrid's youngest daughter, Benedikte. Benedikte has actually has 3 children: Gustav in 1969, Alexandra (is this the Alexandra you meant? You couldn't just say that "you forgot one of the SWB princely family kids, Princess Alexandra, who is the middle child and oldest daughter of Benedike" rather than confuse me entirely by being all snobish about it and saying "Try Princess Alexandra as their oldest daughter and child." when in reality, Alexandra is Benedike's MIDDLE child, not oldest?) and Nathalie.

They are also related to the Spanish royals- Queen Sofia is a Greek royal as well as a is both a great-great-granddaughter (paternally) and a great-great-great-granddaughter (maternally) of Queen Victoria. And they are distantly related to the Monaco Royals as well, Prince Albert's great-great-great grandmother (I think. L M-V H was the grandmother of Albert's great grandfather, Louis II), Lady Mary Victoria Hamilton was a first cousin of Queen Carola of Saxony, who is a daughter of Crown Prince Gustav of Sweden, who was the last ruler of the house of House of Holstein-Gottorp which ruled both Sweden and Norway at one point, so they are distantly related to both the Norway and Swedish royals.

Yes, Queen Astrid of Belgium was originally a princess of Sweden, and her daughter (I don't remember her name though right now) became grandduchess of Luxembourg. And there are more distant links as well. Wasn't the first king of Belgium a relative of Queen Victoria? That would give us a link to Belgium through Margareth of Connaught. And our current king's great great grandmother, Sophia of Nassau, originally came from the same family, that later became the grandducal family of Luxembourg.

Alexandra is the middle child of three, but she is also the oldest of two daughters as Nathalie is younger than her, and the firstborn is a son.

As well as Norway, Denmark, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria (very distantly), Russia and France. There's a double connection with Norway and Denmark. Most of the connections are via Queen Victoria and Christian IX of Denmark. There is also a distant connection via Tsar Alexander II of Russia.

The mother of Alexander II, Alexandra Feodorovna was born princess Charlotte of Prussia, and her younger sister princess Louise of Prussia married prince Frederick of the Netherlands, and their oldest daughter princess Louise of the Netherlands was married to king Karl XV of Sweden. Alexander II and Louise were cousins.

Alexander II: s wife, Maria Alexandrovna was born Marie of Hesse and by the Rhine, her mother was princess Wilhelmine of Baden. Wilhelmines older sister was Frederica of Baden was married to king Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden. Their daughter princess Sophia Wilhelmina married her half-grand-uncle (!) Leopold I, Grand Duke of Baden, and their son Frederick I was the father of princess Victoria of Baden, wife of king Gustav V of Sweden. Maria Alexandrovna and princess Sophie of Sweden was cousins, making Alexander III and Frederick of Baden second cousins, and Nicholas II, the last Russian Tsar was a third cousin to Victoria of Baden.

Karl Ludwig, hereditary prince of Baden -> princess Wilhelmine of Baden -> Maria Alexandrovna -> tsar Alexander III of Russia -> tsar Nicholas II of Russia
Karl Ludwig, hereditary prince of Baden -> princess Frederica of Baden -> princess Sophia Wilhelmina of Sweden -> Frederick I, grand duke of Baden -> princess Victoria of Baden

An other connection: princess Wilhelmine of Baden -> prince Karl Wilhelm of Hesse and by the Rhine -> Ludwig IV, Grand Duke of Hesse -> Alix of Hesse and by the Rhine (Alexandra Feodorovna)

(A little royal scandal: princess Wilhelmine was married to Ludwig II, grand duke of Hesse and while he was the father prince Karl Wilhelm of Hesse, he was not the father of her daugher Maria Alexandrovna.)

There is a much closer connection too:
Duke Carl Eduard of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha - Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha - King Carl XIV Gustav
Duke Carl Eduard of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha - Prince Friedrich Josias - Prince Andreas

HM king Carl XVI Gustaf is apparently related to most european royal houses but the royal families of the united kingdom and Denmark and Norway are the closest I can think of.

The ex-queen of Greece is our king's first cousin as well. And through princess Astrid, who became the queen of the Belgians, there's also a connection to the royal houses of Belgium and Luxembourg. And yeah, I even remember reading somewhere, that our royal family is like seventh cousins to the principal family of Monaco!

Isn't there a Princess Louisa from the Netherlands that became a queen of Sweden?

There was. Her husband was King Carl XV. Their daughter, also named Louise, became a queen of Denmark.

Strictly speaking I don't think she's related to the current Swedish royal family or is she? She is of the Norwegians and Danish though :-)

The closest link between ALL of Europes reigning Kings, Queens, Grand Duke and Princes is their mutual descent from Johan Willem Friso of Orange Nassau.

That's right. She has descendants in the Danish, Norwegian, Belgian and Luxembourgish royal families, but not the Swedish one.
