Prince Gorm of Denmark (Danish: Prins Gorm Christian Frederik Hans Harald til Danemark til Ísland; b. Jægersborghus, 24 February 1919 – Copenhagen, 26 December 1991) was the first son of Prince Harald of Denmark and his wife, Princess Helena Adelaide of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg.

He was an Officer of the Royal Danish Navy.

As a result of the Danish Act of Succession of 1953, which restricts the throne to those descended from Christian X and his wife, Alexandrine of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, through approved marriages, he lost his place in the line of succession.

He died unmarried and without issue.
