Her heartbroken younger brother, Prince Sixtus Henry of Bourbon-Parma, said she passed away yesterday.
The royals are members of the House of Bourbon-Parma which is a cadet branch of the Spanish royal family, descended from the French Capetian dynasty.
A cadet branch is created when a young member of a Royal Family, who is not the current heir, is granted lands and titles of his own.
Princess Maria Teresa was born in Paris, France on July 28, 1933 to parents, Prince Xavier and Madeleine de Bourbon, who had a total of six children.
The news comes after it was revealed Prince Charles, 71, has a "mild" form of the illness.
