Lady Louise Windsor's Heartfelt Platinum Jubilee Role Revealed

The Queen’s youngest
granddaughter Lady Louise Windsor will be paying tribute to the
monarch in an incredibly special way later this month in honour of her Platinum
Jubilee.

It was revealed at the weekend
that the 18-year-old will both celebrate her grandmother and pay homage
to her late grandfather, Prince Philip, at the Windsor Horse Show’s
Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The Telegraph reports that
the event, which takes place this year between 12 and 15 May, will see the
young royal drive the Duke of Edinburgh’s carriage.

Louise is a keen carriage
driver, and she and the late Duke bonded over their mutual love of the
sport.

The young royal would
sometimes accompany Philip on his rides and even inherited one of his
carriages after he died.

The carriage left to Louise
was Philip’s most recent one, which he began using at the age of 91 for riding
around Windsor and other royal estates.

Made of aluminum and steel,
it was built to the Duke’s specifications, drawing on his knowledge of FEI
(Federation Equestre Internationale) driving.

Last month, Prince Edward and
Sophie’s eldest child marked the anniversary of her grandfather’s death
by taking an early morning drive in Windsor, where she was
accompanied by Philip’s good friend the Countess Mountbatten of Burma, Penelope
Knatchbull.

The Countess is also a fan of
carriage driving and was taught the skill by Prince Philip in 1994.

The Countess of Wessex has
previously spoken to The Telegraph about her daughter’s carriage
driving talents, saying: “She’s loved it, it’s really pushed her into
doing things that she’s had to schedule into her routine.”

She added: “She’s quite a
committed person anyway. This is the kind of thing that really ticks the boxes
for her. But in terms of confidence, it’s given her a huge amount.”
