This is what I have found. Let me know if I have missed any lines.
Royal descendants of Johan-Willem-Friso of Orange-Nassau:

I like the different ways we approach the search, Ish. Your way is very, very extensive and exact. I think that there isn't a person left out in your lists.
My way is much more focussed on the main-line. I only branch-out when there is a cross-connection. Which leaves out many people.

I extended the Prince-Philip-line:
Apart from Queen Victoria, and Kings George I and II, he is also descendant from Johan-Willem-Friso and of William the Silent.

Hmm... okay, so the two lines won't work together because they're headed towards a different common ancestor. If you extended the common ancestor to be Edward IV or Edward III, you could add Catherine into it, but it would be a good amount of extra work for not a lot of extra information.

For Johan Willem Friso, I don't think you've missed anyone for what you've got on him so far.

I've updated my previous chart tracing the descendants of Queen Victoria, as well as expanded it.

The first link is for charts regarding British lines - Victoria, George III, and George II (I'm currently working on George I, and will update again once it's done). The second link has charts for Christian IX of Denmark and Johan Willem Friso.

For the Victoria, Christian, and J.W.F. lines I've used both the Peerage and Wikipedia (and for the J.W.F. line I did a lot of googling to try to complete the Mexican lines), but for the Georges I've only used the Peerage. All the lines are somewhat lacking in regards to any births/deaths/marriages/divorces that have happened in the last couple years, especially regarding houses that aren't as well known. I've highlighted the monarchs and heir apparents of all currently existing realms (as well as the previous heirs who died before becoming monarch), the realms that previously existed and branched off of the specific individuals that I've looked at (the Hanovers, Saxe-Coburg and Gothas, and the Greeks), the House of Orange (since that was J.W.F.'s realm), and the Jacobite line of succession (because of future planned projects). I've bolded all of the currently reigning monarchs, and the current pretenders based on the list of pretenders found on Wikipedia (with the exception of Mexico and Brazil, these are all European houses).

I'll update it again when I finish George I's line.

Alright, so I've finished George I and his mother, Sophie of the Palatinate.

In order to keep the size down so that the file doesn't need to be downloaded, I've deleted the list of monarchs/pretenders that I'm referring to on this file, but it's still available on files for the later Georges/Victoria and Christian/J.W.F. that I linked in my last post, and updated so as to show what George I/Sophie add to the mix (Sophie doesn't have any living descendants who are not also descended from her son).

I'm not certain what my next project will be... I'm thinking of highlighting the people passed over by the Act of Succession.

HRH Prince George of Cambridge can trace his direct patriline back to Elimar I Count of Oldenburg. He reigned from 1101 to 1108

Princes William and Harry are related to James Bond

Princes William and Harry are almost certainly related, through the Milne family of Aberdeenshire, to the man who was, in large part, the model for the fictional British spy, James Bond.

According to my research, Princes William and Harry share a common descent from the Milne family with a friend of the author of the James Bond novels, Ian Fleming, called Robin Ian Evelyn Milne Stuart de la Lanne-Mirrlees (born Grinnell-Milne) of Inchdrewer, Baron of Inchdrewer, who died in 2012 on his private Hebridean island of Great Bernera. Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees was a Captain in the Royal Artillery during the Second World War and was later appointed by the Queen as Rouge Dragon Pursuivant and then Richmond Herald at the College of Arms in London. Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees helped Ian Fleming to develop the James Bond alias, genealogist Sir Hilary Bray, for the 1963 book 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service', which was based on his position as a herald. By Princess Margarethe of Wurttemberg he had an illegitimate son, Patrick Grinnell-Milne de la Lanne-Mirlees, who in 2006 became the mayor of Delmenhorst in Lower Saxony.

Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees (Grinnell-Milne) was the son of a famous and much-decorated First World War fighter pilot and author of war-time escape diaries, Captain Duncan William Grinnell-Milne MC, DFC (1896–1973), who was descended from a Mylne/Milne family of Banff, north of Aberdeen. In 1713 a member of this family, James Milne, murdered George Ogilvy, 3rd Lord Banff, who had insulted his young wife, and burnt down his castle at Inchdrewer, but he was cleared of a charge of murder. The castle, which is haunted by a lady in the form of a white dog, was later acquired and partly restored by Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees (Grinnell-Milne), and, in 2014, was bought by the Russian model and fashion designer, 'Princess' Olga Roh, along with the feudal title, Baroness of Inchdrewer.

Princes William and Harry are descended through their mother, Princess Diana, from Alexander Milne of Fyvie, Aberdeenshire, which is only 16 miles from Banff.

The Milne family (also spelt Miln, Myln, Mylne) is not a Highland clan but a sept (followers) of the Gordon clan and appears to have accompanied Sir Adam de Gordon, Lord of Gordon, Berwickshire, to Aberdeenshire in the early 14th century when Sir Adam was granted the Lordship of Strathbogie (Huntly, Aberdeenshire) after the battle of Halidon Hill (1333). The Milnes are widespread in Aberdeenshire and, I am glad to say, have been a constant public nuisance in that part of Scotland since the Middle Ages. I believe that all Milnes from North-East Scotland share a common ancestor, who was undoubtedly a trouble-maker. According to the Lyon Clerk and Keeper of the Records at the Office of the Lord Lyon King of Arms in Edinburgh, the first Milnes mentioned in the records were Hugh and Johannes de Molendino (Latin for Milne) who were excommunicated from Fyvie in 1382 by the local bishop for refusing to pay their rent. And, of course, James Milne burnt down Inchdrewer Castle in 1713 when the owner insulted his wife. The roll-calls of the Gordon Highlanders and the Black Watch are stuffed with Milnes and I suspect that the army was the only place they could be kept under some sort of control. They certainly seem to have lived up to the Gordon clan motto 'Bydand', which means 'Steadfast', and translates into English as 'as stubborn as a mule'. A branch of the family were Master Masons to the Kings of Scots for seven generations and Robert Mylne (1663-1710), Master Mason to Charles II, built the Palace of Holyroodhouse based on plans which he prepared with Sir William Bruce, Surveyor of the King's Works. Admiral Sir Archibald Berkeley ('Arky-Barky') Milne, 2nd and last Bt. (1855-1938), son and grandson of Admirals, was Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet at the start of the First World War and is famous for saying 'They don't pay me to think, they pay me to be an Admiral'. Another member of the family, Alexander Mylne (1474-1548/9), Abbot of Cambuskenneth, was first Lord President of the Court of Session (1532-1543), an example of good behaviour which the family tries hard to conceal. The family tartan is a shocking mixture of red and white, which is probably designed to offend the eye from at least 6 miles away. Interestingly, Princes William and Harry have more Milne in their make-up than Stuart, the former Scottish royal house. I am convinced that Prince Harry has inherited his more rowdy tendencies from the Milne family, which is what we like to see; it would be a huge disappointment to see a Milne behaving himself.

Elimar I is also the patrilineal ancestor of Margrethe II of Denmark, Harald V of Norway, and Constantine II of Greece,
Of course.

Agnatically they are members of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg dynasty which in turn is one of the lines of the House of Oldenburg.

Just like Queen Elizabeth II is agnatically a member of Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha dynasty, which in turn is one of the lines of the House of Saxony (Wettin).

That also goes for all other members of the royal family who are not descendants of Prince Philip, such as Duke of Gloucester, Due of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent and their male line descendants.
