Prince Carl of Denmark discontinued use of his Danish titles upon accepting the Norwegian throne, becoming King Haakon VII.

Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark gave up the use of his Greek and Danish titles before marrying Princess Elizabeth, heiress to the British throne.

The Greek royal family continues to use the title "Prince(ss) of Greece and Denmark", but none of them have any succession rights in Denmark.
