Duchess Helene of Mecklenburg-Schwerin married as a protestant the crown prince of the French and remained in her faith. That was the reason why the marriage could not be celebrated in the Notre Dame in Paris (the archbishop would not accept it).
And that's why she is buried in the Royal Chapel in Dreux in a side chapel, stretching her arm from a window to her husband, who is buried at the central chapel, together with the rest of the (catholic) family.
I found that curious when I visited it. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/8a/27/f6/8a27f6880b12b2e8287f14c570fa5a3b.jpg
