Lady Louise Windsor 'bears a striking resemblance' to Queen when she was younger

Sophie Wessex and children arrive at Prince Philip’s funeral

Royal commentator and the Telegraph's associate editor Camilla Tominey compared Lady Louise, 17, to a young Princess Elizabeth. She highlighted how Prince Edward and Sophie's daughter has similarities to her grandmother when she was her age.

Writing in the Telegraph, Ms Tominey said: "Now 17, Lady Louise bears a striking resemblance to a young Princess Elizabeth, and is said to share something of her character, too.

"She is 'studious', according to one insider, 'a good girl. She’s totally conscientious and straightforward.'

"Not unlike, then, how her granny is said to have been as a girl – modest, sensible and mad about horses."

Royal expert Ingrid Seward told the newspaper: “There are shades of the young Elizabeth.

“There is something about her – a capability.

"She’s obviously a very gentle young woman."

Lady Louise is said to be close to the Queen due to living so near to Windsor Castle.

She attended her grandfather Prince Philip's funeral at St George's Chapel on Saturday with her parents the Earl and Countess of Wessex and her younger brother James, Viscount Severn.

She also joined Sophie and Edward last Friday to view tributes to the Duke of Edinburgh from the public at Windsor Castle.

And she stepped out with her parents the Sunday after Philip's death for a church service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints.

The Duke passed on his love of carriage driving to his granddaughter and also taught the sport to the Countess.

His carriage and two Fell ponies - called Balmoral Nevis and Notlaw Storm - made a poignant appearance during his funeral.

The Daily Mail reported that Lady Louise will inherit Philip's carriage and ponies.

In 2019, the Duke was pictured proudly watching his granddaughter taking part in a carriage driving competition at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

Philip was still spotted out carriage driving in his 90s.

And he continued to take part in demanding carriage driving competitions into his 80s.

The Duke was forced to give up polo at the age of 50 in 1971 due to his arthritic wrist and decided to find a new sport to focus on.
