Radiant Lady Louise: Embracing a Proud Family Tradition with Elegance

Very close to her late grandfather, Lady Louise Windsor inherited his passion for equestrian sports. Wishing to honour Prince Philip’s memory and perpetuate the family tradition, the young woman took part in some very special rehearsals on 30 July.

It was rehearsal day for Lady Louise Windsor on Sunday 30 July. Yesterday, Edward’s eldest daughter perpetuated the proud tradition of carriage driving started by her grandfather, Prince Philip, by taking part in trials at Windsor Park Equestrian Club. The 19-year-old is, like many members of her family, an accomplished equestrian. It’s a passion she inherited from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, but above all from her grandfather, with whom she has always been very close. Two years after his death, she proudly resumed her role as a carriage driver, even in the carriage bequeathed to her by the late Duke of Edinburgh, the title of which has now passed to her parents, Prince Edward and Sophie.

Lady Louise made her carriage-riding debut at the age of 17. Her grandfather had started at the age of 50, after retiring from polo. He taught her the basics of driving a horse-drawn carriage, but she also took courses to master the royal carriage. Now, her carriage rides have become a way for the young woman to pay tribute to her grandfather, who will die in 2021.
