Prince Waldemars Royal British Ancestry:
The Prince’s godmother Her Majesty Queen Alexandrine of Denmark invited the young Prince Waldemar to live with her and his maternal aunt and uncle, H.R.H. Princess Caroline-Mathilde and H.R.H. Prince Knud of Denmark, and he moved to Denmark at the age of 5. At the age of 10, he returned to Germany where he was born and later became a successful artist, banker and manager.
In 1977, he had moved to Denmark once again and became a Danish citizen upon marrying Anne-Lise Johansen who became H.H. Princess Anne-Lise of Schaumburg-Lippe, she was Royal Danish court photographer of Prince Waldemars second cousin, H.M. Queen Magrethe II. Together they have one daughter called H.H. Princess Eleonore-Christine af Schaumburg-Lippe.
On the one hand Prince Waldemar loves the Kingdom of Denmark, on the other hand side he was disgusted by some of the Danish tabloids and called them the global inventors of #FakeNews.
Prince Waldemar clarifies in his interviews with Zeitblatt the most disturbing and outrageous lies by danish tabloids, he suffered from, and called them disgusting and rude:
H.R.H. Princess Elisabeth of Denmark in Sorgenfri Palace inviting H.H. Prince Waldemar Schaumburg-Lippe and H.H. Princess Antonia Schaumburg-Lippe.
Smiling Prince Waldemar is very happy now, living in Vienna Austria, with his beloved wife H.H. Dr. Princess Antonia Schaumburg-Lippe:
„I am so blessed with my current life, my beloved wife H.H. Dr. Princess Antonia (marriage 20th of September 2008 at Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna) and our son H.H. Dr. Prince Mario-Max Schaumburg-Lippe. They are the sweetest and nicest people i could wish for in my life!“, and Prince Waldemar added: „I always wanted to have a son, a male successor, and I am so happy that by german court ruling, Prince Mario-Max is declared the son of me and Princess Antonia as confirmed under Section 1772 of the German BGB Civil Law Code, with the special effects of the adoption of a minor by law and therefore having full family and relationship rights towards me and my entire family! Therefore i have two fully equally ranked wonderful children H.H. Dr. Prince Mario-Max Schaumburg-Lippe and H.H. Princess Eleonore-Christine Schaumburg-Lippe. We always loved to travel together and numerous times my wife, me and also our son invited Princess Eleonore-Christine to be part of my new exciting life.“
Prince Waldemar also presented us the birth certificate of his son, due to so many fabrications and fantasies around his family and added: „I adopted Mario-Max Prince Schaumburg-Lippe, thats was his name no any press fantasized one, and then the german court ruling declared the name Dr. Mario-Max Prince Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe for my son. All other names circulating online are pure fabrication and it is unbelievable how quick those false stories spread. My son, our princely name and our decisions are our private matter and legal facts. That’s it!“.
About third party commentators within the family, H.H. Prince Waldemar clarifies: „I am a german citizen, I am Waldemar Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe, my wife is Dr. Antonia Prinzessin zu Schaumburg-Lippe, my son is Dr. Mario-Max Prince Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe. There is absolutely no entity existing called called houses, or head of houses or dynasties or alike in Germany. Everyone is equally the same under the german and European union constitutions. If somebody has simply has the same name and – obviously to attract press – calls themselves head of a house or dynasty, this is pure attempt to claim supremacy or special distinct. In other words just an obvious attempt to fool the public. Especially when someone like me and my family Princess Antonia and Prince Mario-Max are ourselves legally THE family, dynasty and our own house that do not associate, join or accept any other entity. There is no legal supreme person of a family – that simply does not even exist – and this comes solely out of the world of gossip, tabloid fantasies and fairytales, but we go by the German law!“.

Royal Reporter Bodil Cath always advised Prince Waldemar not to even reply the fake stories, as this fuels them to write even more fabricated content, and pointed out, that he is a bestseller in the news. Whatever journalists write about you, gets all over the news, and all over the country.
Legendary Oscar Winner Margaret O’Brien (Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Meet Me In St. Louis), is one of the dearest family friends of Prince Waldemar.
