Lady Louise Windsor paid tribute to her late grandfather Prince Philip with an important royal appearance after his death. Little did many know, however, that this appearance was an indicator of the legacy he left for his youngest granddaughter.
According to reports, the young royal was left some very personal items by the late Duke.
Per HELLO! (opens in new tab)Prince Philip reportedly left two of his carriage driving ponies, named Balmoral Nevis and Notlaw Storm, to Lady Louise. As well as the beautiful ponies, he also left her his beloved dark green carriage—which was built to his own specifications.
The carriage in question is also the one that carried his coffin during his funeral procession, with his riding gloves, whip, and hat sitting on top of his casket too.
Apart from their love of carriage riding, it's believed that Lady Louise Windsor’s birth marked a turning point for Prince Philip—years after his surname was royally snubbed following his marriage to the Queen.
As a matter of fact, decades after a legal change in 1960, she was the first royal to officially be given the surname Mountbatten-Windsor at birth.
The young Royal has also proven a great comfort to her mourning grandmother and during her recent health woes, the Queen was visited by Lady Louise at the castle.
