Lady Louise is a talented carriage driver
Outside of her studies, Lady Louise shares her grandmother and late grandfather Prince Philip‘s love of equestrian sports. She is a keen horse rider and an accomplished carriage driver, having achieved third place in the Private Driving Singles carriage drive at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in 2019.
Lady Louise was born on 8 November 2003 at Frimley Park Hospital and is currently 14th in line to the throne behind her younger brother James, Viscount Severn, as she did not benefit from the changes made in The Succession to the Crown Act (2013), which states that girls will not be overtaken by younger brothers.
