Woman Louise Windsor’s life in photos as she turns 18 at this time

She’s one of Tatler’s top 10 most eligible people in Britain, featuring in the Little Black Book this month, and now, Lady Louise Windsor – 16th in line to the throne – has come of age. The 18-year-old is the eldest child and only daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, and is the Queen’s second-youngest grandchild – she has one younger brother, James, Viscount Severn, who is four years her junior. Currently still living at home, she grew up at Bagshot Park in Windsor, largely keeping out of the spotlight bar on special royal occasions, such as the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, at which she was a flower girl. Sitting her A-levels next year (in English, drama, history and politics), it’s not known yet whether she will follow in the footsteps of her elder cousins, including Prince William and Princess Eugenie, in going to university, but she’s certainly already shown an aptitude for sports, including a fondness for carriage-driving – a passion she shared with her late grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.
