The heraldic arms shown above are not the arms of the dead Prince Royal, but those present in the Windsor chapel of the Garter, in England, as knight of that Order.
Born heir to the throne, Dom Luís Filipe used full arms of Portugal, with royal mantelpiece, no military orders around it, not even the three Portuguese band Orders (as it is not the Portuguese custom) and the Royal Prince crown over it, with just two golden arms less in the closed royal crown than his father the King. No difference, except in the crown, to his father full royal arms: and so no threefolded bank of an infante could be there, as he was superior in rank to the infantes, being born a Prince of Portugal and a Royal Highness (Infantes are styled in Portugal Highnesses, not Royal Highnesses, style reserved to the Princes heir apparent to the crown).
