The Prince of Wales as well as the Duke of Cambridge belong to the House of Glücksburg through Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark.
My question is , will the Danish Royal House continue to be of the line of Glücksburg because the Prince Consort is French?
I guess we will find out when Frederik comes to the throne, but there is no good reason to change the dynastic name. The House of Orange still reigns in The Netherlands even though the male line ended with Willem III.

I guess Prinsgemalen has to throw another tantrum and retreat to his French vineyards to get his wish fulfilled (add Mozepat to the name of Royal House)..

I think it´s safe to say that the DRF will continue to be Glücksborg, because you are always sure of the child´s mother, but not the father

Maybe Mary would rather be Monpezat than Glucksberg, etc Maybe she likes the French connection.

If you had written Marie, then yes, but Mary no

Can't see why it would matter what she thinks since she will never be the monarch. Anyway, its not like she will ever use a surname since she will go from being HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to HM Queen Mary of Denmark, assuming she stays married to Frederik and Denmark remains a monarchy.

Titles

I do realise this is an old thread bur I'm new here so bear with me as I confuse matters more.

When Danish royal titles are translated into English it will be Prince/esse of Denmark. This is not incorrect but in Danish we use 2 different prepositions depending on the person's place in the line of succession.
Frederik is Crown Prince to Denmark ('to' because the throne will most likely be his one day)
Mary is Crown Princess of Denmark ('of' in her case because she came by the title by marriage)
More examples:
The Duke of Edinborough is also Prince of Denmark (he is the decendant of a Danish king but no longer in the line of succesion).
Interestingly Joachim's and Marie's children are no longer 'to' but 'of' Denmark.
People are speculating that Nikolaj and Felix will inherit their mother's title and be counts of Rosenborg. Or their future spouses will be Countesses of Rosenborg. This is purely specuation!
Nikolaj, Felix, Henrik and Athena are still in the line of succession but it will take a tragedy of epic proportions for either of them to take the throne and maybe that's why they are 'of' rather than 'to' Denmark.

Congratulations on your first posts and welcome.

A minor correction though. Both Athena and bette Henrik are to Denmark. As they are both in the Line of Succession. - Just to be sure I checked the DRF website.
