Lady Louise is Sophie Wessex' mini-me during an outing at the Commonwealth Games, stepping out in one of her mother's dresses. The close pair often share clothes and this particular piece was worn by the Countess back in 2015.


Lady Louise's royal style icon may be up for debate but it's clear the youngster is a fan of her mother's wardrobe. Stepping out to attend an event at the Commonwealth Games, she was joined by her father Prince Edward, younger brother, James Viscount Severn, and of course Sophie Countess Wessex.

All eyes were on the family, with a few eagle-eyed royal watchers noticing that Lady Louise's dress was one by Peter Pilotto that her mother had worn at the Chelsea Flower Show back in 2015. There's no denying that Lady Louise is Sophie Wessex' mini-me, but she made the look her own and dressed it down with some cool white trainers.

Although Sophie has been seen wearing the late Tunisian couturier's threads before, she's not the only member of The Firm who's associated with the label. The brand was responsible for designing Princess Eugenie's wedding dress, meaning it's already gone down in history as a Royal Family favorite!

It's pretty obvious what a close relationship she and her mother Sophie, Countess Wessex have, as Lady Louise's life-altering decision looms ahead. This year's sunny season is likely to be a summer of rest and relaxation for the Queen's youngest granddaughter after Lady Louise finished her exams and secondary education.

Despite a tough few years, during which the promising young royal faced many challenges including the loss of Prince Philip, the Queen's ongoing illness, the pandemic, and many other dramas in The Firm - she's come out on top. So much so that it's been said that Lady Louise Windsor has become the Royal Family's 'secret weapon.'
