His Royal Highness Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, husband of Princess Benedikte of Denmark (sister of Queen Margrethe) has died suddenly at age 82.  While the Prince had twice been treated for cancer in previous decades, his death was unexpected.  The Prince married Princess Benedikte in 1968, and they have three children, Prince Gustav (who succeeds him as Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg), Princess Alexandra and Princess Nathalie.  They also have four grandchildren.

 DNA samples taken from King Richard III revealed that the Duke of Beaufort is NOT descended from the Plantagenets- there was an illegitimacy/non-paternity event in his family line. However this could also apply to Richard III himself. Richard III's grandfather Richard Earl of Cambridge was never acknowledged by his legal father Edmund, Duke of York who believed him to be the product of an affair the Duchess of York had outside their marriage. Richard Earl of Cambridge received no inheritance from the Duke of York, but was executed for treason by Henry V in 1415. So maybe King Richard's line was illegitimate, and not that of the Beauforts. DNA Samples would need to be taken from other deceased Plantagenet kings, and also from other male line descendants of Geoffrey V of Anjou.
