Before her marriage Marguerite supposedly had a long affair with the Prince of Wales, the future Edward VIII when he was stationed in France during World War One.
There was a C4 documentary a few years back on this.

Don't forget the murder of Rasputin in 1916, one of the murderers were prince Felix Yusupov and grand duke Dmitri Pavlovich of Russia supported it.

Yes, poisoned, shot, beaten, drowned, Rasputin was hard to kill off. Even his body was disinterred and burned in 1917 by Soviet troops.

Noble crimes

Duke Charles Edward of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha was convicted for war crimes after WWII for his role as President of the German Red Cross.
Although he was merely a figurehead the Red Cross was an integral part of the Nazi party and its role in the Holocaust is still a subject of debate.

Princess Anne of the british royal family: i've heard that she has been charged twice. Once for driving too fast, once as her dog, dottie, attacked people on their bicycles
