Thank you for the info Rosamund.
The Danish/Hesse relations began when Mary send her three sons to be raised at the Danish court. Marys sister was Queen Louise of Denmark, first wife of Frederik V. Louise died young but the brothers stayed in Denmark and two of them married their Danish cousins.

Mary could have sent her sons to her sister's court so that they were away from their father, who had become a Roman Catholic.

Here is a link to a picture of Louise Charlotte of Denmark, mother of Mimi and Queen Louise.

I found some more info on Princess Marie in Roger Fulford's " Dearest Mama".

In the lead up to Princess Alexandra of Denmark's marriage to the Prince of Wales, Queen Victoria had heard that Princess Louise (Alexandra's mother) had had an illegitmate baby.  Apparently the Duchess of Nassau (Princess Adelheid of Anhalt, daughter of Princess Marie of Hesse) had been spreading the story, she was a neice of Princess Louise.

Queen Victoria asked her eldest daughter to do some investigating, and on January 13, 1862 Vicky reported to her mother the following:-

"The mother of the Duchess, Princess C.'s sister is bad and has had an illegitimate child; now either she has told her daughter this was Princess C.'s or, the Duchess of N. has heard the report about her mother, puts it upon Princess C., her aunt, to screen her mother, which, though inexcusable to me, seems far from unlikely."

I have never heard any thing about this illegitimate child.
Everyone is where they want to be!

GD Ella,

Is there a story here? Marriage & re-marriage pre US Civil War?  I am sure there is?

Thank you for the photo of Uncle Hans, it is interesting to see all his body!  He usually appears, partly obscured, in a family group.  All four brothers are quite handsome, perhaps the sisters were too when they were younger.
