Princess Louise wasn't the Duchess of Calabria; the Duchess of Calabria was her sister-in-law, Princess Maria (née Princess of Bavaria, a daughter of King Ludwig III of Bavaria); Maria was the wife of Prince Ferdinando of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria, Head of the Royal House from 1934 to his death in 1960 and older brother of Louise's husband Prince Carlo.
Since Carlo predeceased his brother Ferdinando in 1949, he never succeeded as Duke of Calabria and thus his wife Louise never became the Duchess of Calabria.

A newspaper article about their wedding:

PRINCE WEDDED TO A PRINCESS - Charles of Bourbon and Louise of Orleans Married with Picturesque Ceremony. 40 ROYAL GUESTS PRESENT Notable Gathering at English Home of the Duke of Orleans, Pretender to French Throne. GIFTS ARE WORTH MILLIONS American

Louise was styled Princess of Bourbon with the treatment of a Spanish Infanta.

On Dawsr's Blog: Alfonso XIII's "girlfriends", it was mentioned that Princess Louise of Orleans was one of the princesses that King Alfonso had considered as a possible Queen.
