Princess Maria Galitzine, a Descendent of the Habsburg Dynasty, Dies Suddenly at 31

Maria, whose great-grandparents were the last Emperor and Empress of Austria, died on May 4 from a “sudden cardiac aneurysm”

In an obituary published by the Houston Chronicle, it states that the Austrian royal died in Houston, Texas, on May 4 from a sudden cardiac aneurysm.

Maria Singh, neé Princess Maria Petrovna Galitzine, tragically died from a cardiac aneurysm just days ahead of her 32nd birthday.

The daughter of Prince Piotr Galitzine and Princess Maria-Anna Galitzine, neé Archduchess of Austria, died on May 4 from a “sudden cardiac aneurysm,” according to an obituary published in The Houston Chronicle. She was laid to rest on May 8 in the Orthodox section of Forest Park Westheimer Cemetery.

At the time of her death, the princess was living in Houston with her husband, chef Rishi Singh. In 2017, they welcomed their first child, a son named Maxim, whom the Chronicle describes as the “apple of her eye.”

Maria was born in Luxembourg and grew up in Moscow, where she attended the German School. After graduating, she moved to Belgium to attend the College of Art and Design before her work in interior design took her to Chicago and finally Houston.

She married Rishi Roop Singh, a chef in Houston, in 2017, and had a 2-year-old son, Maxim, who “was the apple of her eye,” according to the obituary.
Maria’s royal status came from both sides of her family. Her father is a Russian aristocrat, while her mother is the daughter of the Archduke Rudolf of Austria, who was the youngest son of Emperor Charles I of Austria and Empress Zita of Bourbon-Parma (the last Emperor and Empress of Austria), making her a descendent of the Habsburg dynasty.
