You may wish to compare http://genealogics.org/ahnentafel.php?personID=I00007536&tree=LEO&parentset=0&generations=4 and http://genealogics.org/ahnentafel.php?personID=I00004431&tree=LEO&parentset=0&generations=4
They were both descended from Friedrich Franz I, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1756 - 1837) who was their 3G grandfather.
1. Friedrich Ludwig, Hereditary Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (b 1778) and Luise Charlotte, Herzogin von Mecklenburg-Schwerin (b 1779) - siblings.
2. Helene Luise Elisabeth, Herzogin von Mecklenburg-Schwerin (b 1814) and Luise, Prinzessin von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg, Herzogin von Sachsen (b 1800) - 1st cousins.
3. Robert Philippe Louis Eugene Ferdinand d'Orléans, Duc de Chartres (b 1840) and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (b 1819) - 2nd cousins
4. Marie Amelie Françoise Helene, Princesse d'Orléans (b 1865) and Empress Frederick (b 1840) - 3rd cousins.
5. Axel and the Kaiser - 4th cousins.

They were both descended from Karl August, Grossherzog von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach (1757-1828)
1. Karoline Luise, Prinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach, Herzogin von Sachsen and Karl Friedrich, Grossherzog von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach - siblings
2. Helene Luise Elisabeth, Herzogin von Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Marie Luise Augusta Catharina, Prinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach, Herzogin von Sachsen - first cousins
3. Robert Philippe Louis Eugene Ferdinand d'Orléans, Duc de Chartres and Emperor Frederick III - second cousins
4. Marie Amelie Françoise Helene, Princesse d'Orléans and the Kaiser - 3rd cousins
5. Axel and the Kaiser - 3rd cousins once removed

There may well be a closer relationship which I have missed.
