My understanding is that the children of Nikolai and Felix, as great grand children of a monarch will not be princes/princesses, whether Nikolai and Felix marry with or without permission.
I am not sure whether there is a precedent to this effect in Denmark, but HM the Queen is favoring this development as indicated by the fact that Nikolai and Felix are not Royal Highnesses, but plain hignesses. So, once a generation has ceased to be royal, the next one is expected to cease to be princely altogether!

I guess this would be in line with the British precedent whereby grandchildren of a monarch are the last generation to be princely.

The obvious thing is for Nikolai and Felix (or their children) not to ask for permission when they'll marry, and voilá - counts of Rosenborg.
Good! You gave me the golden opportunity.
Therefore, in practice, Rosenborg is the surname of the members of the Danish Royal Family when they cease to be royal. Thus, the argument raised by many, including former king Constantine, that the Danish Royal Family has no surname is untenable.
In practice, that is, all members become Rosenborgs when they cease to be princes/princesses.

Thanks norwegianne for your answer I suppose we'll have to wait and see how it turns out in future!

Excellent remark of historic significance. I read somewhere [but cannot remember the source] that the exemption from the "rule" was due to the fact that, while controversy about that forthcoming marriage was in progress, King George VI was somehow incensed and said something to the effect that if a Bowes-Lyon was good for a king, a Bowes-Lyon could also be appropriate bride for a prince.

That was clever.

Henriksen was the surname Birgitte Duchess of Gloucester was born to right? Before she changed it to her mother's name, van Deurs, I think when she was twenty years old, apparently because of her parents' separation.

Brigitte took her mother's maiden name when her parents seprarated in 15 Jan 1966.

Frederik Henriksen - Frederik son of Henrik. Something light with Russian patronimics kind of second name.

How are the Royals addressed in School?

I'm sorry if this has already been posted, for i'm sure its a interesting question, but when Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim were in school, and now that Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix are in school, how are they addressed? Are they called by their titles? Or do they use a last name?

Again, sorry if this is repeated.

They don't have a last name so more than likely on the register they are Prince .... but when in class they are/were just reffered to by there first name.

Let us remember that heads of royal houses no longer make arbitary rules concerning their names. All constitutional monarchies and former European monarchies have legislation about surnames. Germany has very strict legal rules, in the UK you can call yourself what you like so long as you are not using it for illegal purposes. I believe the French republic has perhaps the most stringent laws regarding surnames. Although they may choose not to use it all European royal families have surnames.
