Princess Henriette of Belgium
Cross of Laeken has an excellent post on HRH Princess Henriette of Belgium, Duchess of Vendome. She was the niece of HM King Leopold II of the Belgians, wife of Prince Emmanuel the Duc d'Vendome and someone who understood the importance of the divine connections between religion and monarchy. She was also quite the sportswoman who once went to the United States with her husband to hunt grizzly bears! Faithful, feminine and fearless -quite a combination.
