Elisabeth is the child of Prince Knud of Denmark and his wife Princess Caroline Mathilde, also born a Princess of Denmark.

Knud was the younger brother of King Frederik IX.

Princess Elisabet was born in 1935 and for years had a relationship with a non-royal gentleman, but unlike her brothers who married commoners and lost their dynastic rights, Elisabeth never married and remains a dynast in Denmark.

Its always hard to say why someone hasnt married, unless they have said something about it...As Arturo said, she had a relationship with a man for many years, and it only enden cause of his death some years ago. They were seen in public so she didnt hide him!

Prince Knud Christian Frederik Michael of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, Hereditary Prince of Denmark, was born july 27 1900 at Fredensborg Castle.

He was the youngest son of King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine.

In 1933, he married his cousin, Princess Caroline Mathilde of Denmark.

They had three children :

- Prince Ingolf, Count of Rosenberg (b. 17 February 1940)
- Prince Christian, Count of Rosenberg (b. 22 October 1942)

Isn't this Princess Elisabeth the only one still considered a member of the royal family, besides Margrethe's immediate family?

Yes, Elisabeth is the only one who is still a member of the RF and a dynast.

Count Ingolf is the highest ranking person in Denmark besides the RF.
He is also the only child of Prince Knud that has an income from the state, because of his former status as future king.

Cousins, Knud and Caroline Mathilde knew each other since childhood but I would be curious to know how their feelings have changed to one another and if their union or not was  really a love story ?

Prins Knud used to babysit for my mother while he was dating my aunt. I mention that briefly on my blog, but there will be more, eventually (including  a 3-page letter written by him to my grandmother, in which he describes my parents' wedding. http://stomp-off.blogspot.com/2010/02/whats-in-your-family-wallet.html
