Legend says that he was the older or the twin brother of King Louis XIV of France, and he spent all his life in jail, wearing an iron mask, avoiding him to be recognized!
Leonardo DiCaprio played the role of the Man in the Iron Mask!!!

I find Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum one of the saddest royals. He does have empty & sad eyes. His eyes are so expressive too. Even when he's faking his smile, we can know what he feels through his eyes!

Don't know if you agree.

I know this is a very old thread, but I get tears in my eyes when I look at these photos. I remember seeing clips from Grace's funeral and Prince Rainier looked like he was ready to collapse. So, so sad.

Historically, Queen Anne who lost so many children, Catherine de Braganza who never had any children, and Catherine of Aragon who got a very raw deal from her father, her father-in-law and her husband.

Princess Diana reflected her sadness and didn't always try to cover it up when others would have.

Princess Mabel. Perhaps not the saddest all of her life, but right now the saddest.

Princess Grace who never quite accepted that being a Princess meant that she could not also continue to have an acting career, and of course her 3 miscarriages meant she also could not have the large family she wanted.

Even the Duke of Windsor although he had Wallis, he too had sad eyes.

Don't think they were mentioned yet, and i don't know exactly how sad their lives were, but the royals i would least want to lifeswap with:
Ivan VI of Russia and his siblings Elizabeth, Catherine, Alexei, Peter...
Ivan imprisoned from the age of 1 until his death at age 24 (seeing noone but his jailer)
the siblings born in captivity and only released when they were well in their 40's into the custody of an aunt

Mme Royale and Louis xvii, the children of Louis xvi and Marie Antoinette. Fallen from the gilded court at Versailles, to a frightening existence in volatile revolutionary Paris. Then [on the abolition of their fathers throne] imprisonment in the Temple prison, the excecution of their father, separation from their mother [also excecuted].
Louis Charles died in wretched circumstances, brutalised by his gaolers, in solitary confinement, starving in a filthy cell, unwashed for months. His Sister fared a little better, surviving to be ransomed by her mothers family, but remained a tragic, melancholy figure for the rest of her life.

Prince Leopold of Belgium, Duke of Brabant (1859-1869) had a short life and a sad ending. He was the only son of the future Leopold II and Marie Henriette. Prince Leopold died on January 22, 1869 from pneumonia. He had fallen into a pond.

The Duke of Edinburgh's father, Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, also belongs in this category. He
went to live in the South of France on the French Riviera. He lived in a small apartmentm or on board a yacht with his lady friend, Countess Andrée de La Bigne. His marriage to Alice was effectively over, and after her recovery and release, she returned to Greece. Andrew returned to Greece also for a brief visit that May 1936. The following year, his daughter Cécile, son-in-law and two of his grandchildren were killed in an air accident at Ostend; he met Alice for the first time in six years at the funeral, which was also attended by Hermann Göring.

At the start of World War II, he found himself trapped in France, while his son, Prince Philip, fought on the side of the British. They were unable to see or even correspond with one another. Two of Andrew's surviving sons-in-law fought on the German side: Prince Christoph of Hesse was a member of the Nazi Party and the Waffen-SS, and Berthold, Margrave of Baden, was invalided out of the German army in 1940 after an injury in France. For five years, Andrew saw neither his wife nor his son. He died in the Metropole Hotel, Monte Carlo, Monaco of heart failure and arterial sclerosis just as the war was ending.

Don't know if he had a oarticularly sad life (other than it being short), but imo the life of his siblings was quite sad after his death because the relationship with their parents was difficult and the relationship between the parents became even worse when a new attempt at conceiving an heir failed

Among the saddest of all time must be Tsar Nicholas II and his entire immediate family. Many of the Romanovs who were caught in the Revolution came to a sad end too.

Queen Victoria was certainly the most lachrymose, as anyone who's seen the innumerable photographs of her in mourning gazing at busts of the dead Prince Albert can testify to! However she did lose the love of her life at 42 years old and spent almost 40 years of her life as a widow, so that's pretty sad.

Princess Diana seemed more sad than happy.
