I think that's Isabella d'Angouleme, the wife of John of England, who after his death, married her former fiance, Guy d'Lusignan

Absolutely correct.
Only, Isabella married not her former fiancée (Hugh IX Lusignan), but his son (Hugh X Lusignan) who was initially engaged to be married to her daughter with King John.

I was a 19th and 20th century princess with no territorial designation upon her death. She was also a medium.

I was a daughter of a powerful King and we initially good relationship.
When he allowed my daughters (and his granddaughters) to be blinded and mutilated because of my husband's crime, we rebelled against him.
After our cause was lost, I personally tried to shoot him - but missed. I was apprehended but managed to escape, albeit in somewhat undignified manner.

The Plantagenets are fascinating indeed, so here is another Princess from the dynasty:

I was a very pampered child and my parents adored me.
They spent no expenses on me, even when I was a baby; my blankets were all made of fur, my cradle was gilded, jewels covered my gowns.
Even as a child, I had impressive household of my own, which included several ladies-in-waiting, personal cooks and butlers, grooms, and others.
Many sought my hand, from foreign Princes and Kings, to nobles in my own country; in the end, however, my parents allowed me to marry for love.

Joan, daughter of Edward I? Her second marriage was for love but it was secret so perhaps not?

Indeed.
Isabella was considered to be one of the most pampered babies of her time.
She didn't marry until she was 33 (at times when even 20 year old women were considered "old" for marriage), and for love.

The only one that fits is, I believe, Crown Prince Haakon.
Four of his godparents were Princess Astrid (born HRH Princess Astrid of Norway), Princess Anne (born HRH Princess Anne of Edinburgh), King Carl XVI Gustaf (born HRH Carl Gustaf, Hereditary Prince of Sweden), and Queen Margrethe II (born HRH Princess Margrethe of Denmark).

I didn't include King Olaf V of Norway - another of Haakon's godparents - because he wasn't wasn't born a Royal Highness; he was born a HH (His Highness) Prince Alexander of Denmark.

Oh dear. I read Godparents instead of Grandparents.
In that case, the only of the current European Heirs with 4 grandparents born Royal Highnesses is Felipe, Prince of Asturias.

His paternal grandparents were: Infante Juan, Count of Barcelona (born HRH Juan Carlos de Borbon y Battenberg) and Princess María de las Mercedes of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (born HRH Princess Maria Mercedes of the Two-Sicilies). His maternal grandparents were Paul I of Greece (born HRH Prince Pavlos of Greece) and Frederike of Hanover (born HRH Princess Friederike of Hanover, Great Britain and Ireland).
