Alexandra Victoria Edwina Diana Knatchbull (Born 5 December 1982), styled The Hon. Alexandra Knatchbull, is the daughter of the 8th Baron Brabourne and his wife Penelope (née Eastwood), known at the time of her birth as Lord and Lady Romsey. She is a great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria and a third cousin twice removed of the Queen. Alexandra is in the line of succession to the British throne.

She was born at King's College Hospitalmarker, Londonmarker.

She read Theology at Regent's Park Collegemarker, University of Oxfordmarker and obtained an upper-second-class degree (2005) as well as serving a year in office as Captain of Boats. In the autumn of 2006 she began graduate studies at the Edmund A.marker Walsh School of Foreign Servicemarker, Georgetown Universitymarker focusing in International Security.

She was one of the seventeen godchildren of Diana, Princess of Wales, who was present at her christening at Romsey Abbeymarker on 12 March 1983.

According to the British tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror, "she is a lifelong friend of the young prince" (i.e. her fifth cousin Prince William of Wales) "and even Prince Charles is said to have a soft spot for her". The paper went on to describe her as having "Wild hair, glossy skin and a great rump", and speculated that she "Could bring out Will's wicked ways".

The Daily Star described her as the "real love of his [William's] young life", continuing, "Although a marriage wouldn't take place for several years, palace insiders already see Alexandra filling the void left in the hearts of the British people after Diana's death."

She was featured in the Channel 4 programme A Wife for William. She received 31.8 percent of the votes cast in the British Aristocracy group, coming third after Lady Rosanagh Innes-Ker and Lady Eloise Anson.

Following Prince William's split from Kate Middleton speculation has been reignited. Paddy Power is offering odds of 6/1 on Alexandra Knatchbull under the heading Who Will Prince William Officially Date Next? This places her behind Jessica Craig (3/1), Arabella Musgrave (4/1), and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe (5/1), and equal with Keira Knightley (6/1).
