Princess Francoise wore the Bourbon-Lobkowicz Tiara.

 
I didn't realise that 2 of their sons had predeceased them

Prince Edouard-Xavier Ferdinand Auguste Gaspard murdered in 1984
Prince Robert Emanuel Joseph Michel Benoît Melchior died in 1988.

How very sad!
 
What a family with hate between The eldest Sister and the Youngest Brother towards the others.
