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 leagues! The whole royal family (well almost, isn’t it Harry and Meghan?) is requisitioned for the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II, including the queen’s granddaughter, 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 subtitled show A leap through history. Hello Magazine reveals behind the scenes.
For 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 have taken their place : the children of William and Kate Middleton – George, Charlotte and Louis -, the daughters of Peter Phillips and his ex-wife Autumn Kelly – Savannah and Isla -, those of Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall – Mia, Lena and Lucas -, the son of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank – August – and the daughter of Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi – Sienna Mapelli Mozzi -. Unsurprisingly, the children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be absent. But what is the role of Lady Louise? Prince Philip’s granddaughter loves horses will have the mission to drive the pony team, inherited by his late grandfather. A great honor!
Lady Louise: her passion for carriages and horses
Like Prince Philip, Lady Louise is passionate about equestrian sports. Before his death, the duke spent time with his granddaughterthis is how he transmitted to her the passion for horses and driving. A passion that also inherited his cousin Zara Phillips, who was Olympic vice-champion 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 this famous horse-drawn carriage at important monarchy events.
