We thought to include all her royal titles here, but if you include all of her names, it would be a real mouthful, so you can thank us for sparing you! Anyways, when Marie was born, she was born into the House of Kinsky, in Prague. Following WWII, her family fled to Germany where she lived for a few decades.
She was greatly focused on education, culture, and the arts, and worked with organizations that provided education to many people. She even served as the president of the Liechtenstein Red Cross for many years. A wonderful, philanthropic human!
Princess Josephine-Charlotte of Belgium
The Grand Duchess consort of Luxembourg and the wife of Grand Duke Jean is next up on her list! She was the eldest daughter of King Leopold III of Belgium, and sister to King Albert II. While she was not too much of a diplomat, she greatly enjoyed her gardening, hunting, skiing, and water activities.
A great lover of modern art, she even exhibited over 100 works from her private collection at Luxembourg’s National Museum of History and Art.
Queen Mother Ntfombi Tfwala of Eswatini
This regal lady was not born into royalty, but rather married into it! She married King Sobuza II of Swaziland (now Eswatini), however after he passed, his other wife, Queen Dzeliwe took over as regent. There was a subsequent power battle and Tfwala’s son, Prince Makhosetive Dlamini became King, which in turn, made Ntfombi Tfwala, the queen regent.
Once her son was of age, she then became Queen Mother (which in Eswatini, this phrase roughly translates to Great She-Elephant. Pretty cool). She is looked up to as the spiritual head of state!
Lady Mary Charteris
More a socialite than a princess it seems, this fun-loving member of the Scottish nobility is none other than Lady Mary Charteris. You may have heard of her — first as a model, second as a DJ, and third as a socialite! She enjoys a good party and is often rubbing shoulders at extravagant parties with any number of A-listers.
Some of her pals include the likes of Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora. Aside from her socialite status, she works as a model and even walked for Alice Temperley during London Fashion Week.
Caroline of Brunswick
Caroline was in for a real rollercoaster, marrying the son of the mad King George III. The marriage to his son, George IV, was arranged due to his lack of funds, and the pair were off to a rocky start (apparently she thought he was “fat” and “nothing like his portrait”). Early on in the marriage, they began to live separately and she adopted orphans, wasn't really on the faithful side, and traveled Europe!
But George IV, upon his father’s passing, swore to not have Caroline as his queen, taking her to a public trial. Sadly her life ended soon after, but her tombstone carries the inscription “Here lies Caroline, the injured Queen of England.”
