The Queen’s second cousin says she will suffer ‘exceptional hardship’ if she is no longer able to drive her Porsche 4X4.

Lady Tatiana Mountbatten could be banned from driving after she admitted a string of offences in the 2018 Porsche Macan.

The 29-year-old accepted breaking the speed limit three times in ten days and was due to appear in court in Wandsworth, London today.

But the aristocratic horse rider asked for the hearing at Lavender Hill Magistrates’ court to be delayed, in order for all three offences to be dealt with on the same day.

The socialite is seeking to hold on to her license as she claims she needs the vehicle to get to equestrian events.

Lady Tatiana is the daughter of Lord Milford Haven, who is a cousin of the Queen's. This makes Lady Tatiana the second cousin of the Queen.

In paperwork submitted to the court she claimed that she needs to be able to drive her 2018 Porsche Macan as part of her job as a dressage rider and will suffer ‘exceptional hardship’ if she loses her licence.

The car is a 2018 plate and the Macan model retails at roughly around £50,000 brand new.

Lady Tatiana’s car was first clocked driving at 70mph in a 60mph zone on March 1 on the M4 near the Heston service station, Brentford.

She was then spotted again on March 6 travelling at 71mph and once more on March 10 at 70mph. 

The offences were all on the same stretch of road near the service station. 

Magistrate John Soones said the court would adjourn her case ‘for all matters to be dealt with on the 6th of December at 11am.

‘The interests of justice are more likely to be served by all three maters being listed together,’ he said.

‘This bench has now decided to make an administrative adjournment.’

Lady Tatiana was appointed as an ambassador to the ‘quintessential luxury British fashion’ brand Crofton & Hall least year.

Her brother, Lord Henry David Mountbatten, escaped a driving ban in 2012 after telling the court he could not afford to take a taxi to his regular flying lessons.

Lady Tatiana, who lives in Chelsea, admitted three speeding offences.

She will be sentenced on 6 December at Lavender Hill Magistrates court.
