Princess Senate Mohato Seeiso (born 7 October 2001[1]) is the eldest child of King Letsie III of Lesotho and his wife Queen 'Masenate Mohato Seeiso.[2]

Princess Senate was born in Maseru, the capital of Lesotho. The current laws governing the Line of succession to the Lesothan throne bar women from succeeding to the throne although there has been support within Lesotho for a change in the rules.[3] No changes have taken place yet and the birth of a brother Prince Lerotholi Seeiso in 2007 means that he becomes the new heir to the throne.

She was christened in Catholic Church as "Mary" on November 10, 2001.

Princess Senate is the patron of the Non-Governmental Organization Coalition on the Rights of the Child which works to monitor and implement the Convention on the Rights of the Child in Lesotho.[4][5]
