According to her Wikipedia article, she held the titles of Princess and Duchess concurrently and became Duchess again by marriage. Her daughter Maria Beatrice Ricciarda is the subject of a Subalbum.

Maria Teresa, this time of Massa and Carrara, wears early 1700s attire, identifiable by the notched sleeves. A diagonal sash is used to hold up her wrap.
