Princess Alice, born deaf in 1885, was the great grandmother of the Duke of Cambridge. A deeply religious woman, she was involved in many humanitarian efforts. She worked for the Red Cross, organized shelters for orphaned children and hid a Jewish family during the Holocaust.

In 1949, Princess Alice founded an order of nursing nuns and moved to a convent on the Greek Island of Tinos.
