Princess Eleonore-Christine of Schaumburg-Lippe (Eleonore-Christine Eugenie Benita Feodora Maria; born 22 December 1978 at Hørsholm, Denmark) is the daughter of Prince Waldemar of Schaumburg-Lippe and his first wife, Anne-Lise Johansen. Princess Eleonore-Christine is a great-great-granddaughter of King Frederick VIII of Denmark. Under Danish law, she is barred from succession to the Danish throne, as she is not a descendant of Christian X. However, through her father, she is a descendant of King George II of Great Britain, and is therefore in line for the British throne.
