 Royal Styles and the uses of "Highness"
Following 1917 the style of Highness was dropped in the British Royal family and the title of prince/princess only allowed for the issue of the sovereign and for the grandchildren in the male line of a sovereign (with the addition of the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales).
Thus all those members of the British Royal Family bearing titles and style other than RH (because they were the issue of a sovereign or grandchildren in the male line of a sovereign) lost their rights to bear such titles and styles unless specifically allowed to bear them.
In the Yugoslavian Royal Family the system is almost the same as in Denmark: Crown Prince Alexander, his wife and three children are styled "Royal Highnesses" as well as his two uncles Prince Tomislav and Prince Andrej, while their children and the descendants of Prince Paul are styled only as "Highnesses".

 Norwegian Royal Standard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The lion in the Royal standard is different from the one in the national coat of arms – where the lion is kept in a more flat style.
When Norway and Sweden was united under the same king, the Royal flag was based on the same pattern: War ensign (Swedish or Norwegian version depending on the country) with union mark in the canton and with the 'union' arms in the white field in the centre of the cross.
The Norwegian flag (civil flag/ensign) was originally adopted in 1821 and remained unchanged except for the union mark in the canton.

 Royal family - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Under most systems, only persons in the former category are dynasts, that is, potential successors to the throne (unless the member of the latter category is also in line to the throne in their own right, a frequent occurrence in royal families which frequently intermarry).
In a constitutional monarchy, when the monarch dies, there is always a very specific order of succession that indicates the exact order of family members in line to the throne.
In recent years, many royal families have become increasingly hounded by the media, especially tabloid newspapers.
