Who is Margareta? But yes, the Palace refers to her great-aunts as Princess Esmeralda and Princess Marie-Christine. However, Esmeralda (who lives in England) and Marie-Christine (who lives in the United States) use their husbands' surnames in their private lives.

Her mother Princess Astrid, who as I said above is known officially as HRH Princess Astrid, and who lives in Belgium, does not use her husband's surname and signs her correspondence "Astrid of Belgium".

Margareta is a daughter of Maria Laura's Luxembourg grandparents Jean and Joséphine-Charlotte. She is married to a Liechtenstein Prince but usually she is popularly referred to as prinses Margareta. The three Benelux countries are very similar, due to shared history. The three younger daughters of Queen Juliana, irrespective their husbands' surnames and eventual titles kept their known style too. Like in Belgium and Luxembourg they also remained known as prinses Irene, prinses Margriet, prinses Christina as that simply is their commonly known style, for a lifetime.

Margaretha is not an aunt (nor greataunt) of Maria Laura. Just one of her mother's paternal cousins. Jean and Josephine-Charlotte aren't her grandparents either but her greataunt and greatuncle. Josephine-Charlotte was her grandfather Albert's elder sister, while Maria Esmeralda and Marie Christine are his younger half-sisters.

And Margaretha, just like her sister Marie-Astrid, married a fellow royal and not a commoner. So, of course she is known as princess as she is both a princess vuz Liechtenstein (by marriage) and a princess of Luxembourg etc (by birth). So, her situation is not comparanle to that of Maria Laura.

but waht is wrong about that. As she has married a Prince.
And btw. i didn't know that Maria Laura is a granddaughter of Jean and Joséphine-Charlotte. I always thought Joséphine-Charlotte was her great-aunt
