No, she will simply be Miss Maud Windsor. Her father is Lord Frederick Windsor as the son of a Prince (Prince Michael is a male-line grandson of George V), but titles don't go any further than that. Similarly, the two sons of his cousin Lord Nicholas Windsor have no titles either.

 Принц и принцесса Кентские посетили выставку
Принц Майкл Кентский с супругой Мари-Кристин 30 апреля присутствовали на открытии выставки "Der Weg zur Krone – Das Königreich Hannover und seine Herrscher" ( " Путь к трону. Королевство Ганновера и ее правители") в замке Мариенбург, на юге Ганновера.  Выставку также посетили наследный принц Греции Павлос, ганноверские принцы Эрнст-Август и Кристиан, а также княгиня Глория Турн-и-Таксис.

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent visited exhibition
Prince Michael of Kent and his wife, Marie-Christine on April 30 attended the opening of the exhibition "Der Weg zur Krone – Das Königreich Hannover und seine Herrscher" ("The path to the throne. The Kingdom of Hanover and its rulers") in the castle of Marienburg, to the south of Hannover. The exhibition was also visited by Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, the Hanoverian Princes Ernst August and Christian, and Princess Gloria of Thurn and Taxis.

From http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/2097280.html

With the Russophone Prince Michael commemorating the 300th anniversary of the British-Hanoverian union it is interesting to note that in 1714 the Electorate of Hanover had a small Slavic-speaking minority, in the Hanoverian Wendland east of Hanover, by the Elbe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wendland and http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polabische_Sprache (The last Polabian speaker died in 1756. The language was closely related to Kashubian, of Franziska Schanzkowska fame.)

Today only place names testify of this Slavic outpost. E.g. Wustrow, obviously cognate to Russian в остров - on the island.

Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

NDR: Live aus der Marienburg

The 250 guests were entertained to a dinner of zander followed by an especially fitting dessert: Welfenspeise or Guelph pudding, in the dynastic colours white and gold: See Guelph pudding

What does Welfenspeise consist of?

The white bottom layer is made from a cooked milk and vanilla sauce on a base of very stiffly whipped egg white. After being chilled it is then covered with a yellow layer of wine sauce made of beaten egg yolk, white wine and a little lemon juice.
