Princess Saskia of Hanover (German: Tania Saskia Viktoria-Luise, Prinzessin von Hannover, Prinzessin von Großbritannien und Irland, Herzogin zu Braunschweig-Lüneburg), Princess of Great Britain and Ireland, Duchess of Brunswick-Lüneburg (born 24 July 1970 at Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) is a learning assistant in an infants' school and the only child of the late Prince Welf Ernst of Hanover and his wife Wibke 'Turiya', née van Gunsteren. Through her grandmother, Princess Sophie of Greece and Denmark, Saskia is a grand-niece of The Duke of Edinburgh, and a second cousin of The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Saskia's parents Prince Welf and Princess Wibke became followers of a religious sect led by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. When Saskia was five, the family relocated to the sect's ashram in Poona, India. After her father's death in 1981, Saskia and her mother moved with Bhagwan and the sect to the Rajneeshpuram compound in Oregon. After several years at Rajneeshpuram, Saskia's paternal grandparents Prince George William of Hanover and Princess Sophie of Greece and Denmark were able to send her to England to attend school.
