On the occasion of the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II, Lady Louise will have a very important role. The 18-year-old will pay tribute to the monarch in a very special way.
Lady Louise enters the big league! The whole royal family (well, almost, isn’t it Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ?) is requisitioned for the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II, including the granddaughter of the queen, Lady Louise Windsor. The latter will be in the spotlight during an event that will take place from May 12 to 15: the Royal Windsor Horse Show, a show subtitled A Jump Through History. Hello Magazine reveals the backstage.
On the last day of the show, a horse-drawn carriage will enter the lawn of Windsor Castle. On board, 10 of the Queen’s 12 great-grandchildren will be seated: Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s children – George, Charlotte and Louis -, Peter Phillips and his ex-wife Autumn Kelly’s daughters – Savannah and Isla -, Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall’s – Mia, Lena and Lucas -, Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank’s son – August – and Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s daughter – Sienna Mapelli Mozzi. Not surprisingly, the children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be absent. But what is the role of Lady Louise? The granddaughter of Prince Philip passionate about horses will have the mission of driving the pony carriage, received as an inheritance by her late grandfather. A great honor!
Lady Louise: her passion for carriages and horses
Like Prince Philip, Lady Louise is a passionate equestrian sport. Before his death, the Duke spent time with his granddaughter, so he passed on to her the passion for horses and carriage driving. A passion that was also inherited by his cousin Zara Phillips, who was an Olympic runner-up, and his aunt, Princess Anne, who was the first member of the royal family to participate in the Olympic Games. To continue to indulge in her world, Lady Louise had the honor of inheriting her grandfather’s carriage. Today, the 18-year-old continues to honor Prince Philip by driving the famous carriage at important events of the monarchy.
