Princess Lalla Hasna of Morocco (Arabic: الأميرة لالة حسناء, born 19 November 1967 in Rabat) is the youngest daughter of King Hassan II and his second wife, Lalla Latifa Hammou. She is sister to the current king, Mohammed VI and Prince Moulay Rachid.


She was educated at the Royal College (Rabat).

Since her childhood, Princess Hasna has been interested in social and cultural activities, with special emphasis to environmental issues in Morocco.
