She is, through her daughter Charlotte, grandmother of Queens Luise of Prussia and Frederica of Hanover. According to her Wikipedia article she is a direct matrilineal ancestor of Queen Margarethe II of Denmark, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, King Albert II of Belgium, and King Harald V of Norway.

From Wikipedia.

Maria Luise wears a strip of lace at her neckline that serves as modesty piece and bertha. She wears girandole earrings and a complementary hair jewel.
