Lady Louise is the Queen's mini-me in an old photo, which shows that the close family members have yet another thing in common. It turns out that the second youngest of the Queen's grandchildren is a huge fan of cycling, as her grandmother was at the same age.
The old photo of the Queen, riding a bicycle as a young girl, shows that they share a lot more than their interest in the popular sport—they also share a striking resemblance!
The young royal's love of cycling was revealed by her mother, the Countess of Wessex, during an interview with the Telegraph in 2021. The reason for mentioning her daughter's love of bicycles was for the most relatable reason—to calm down when she and her brother James Viscount Severn were arguing.
Explaining the very understandable tensions felt by her children during the lockdown she said, "If things started heating up inside right away, I’d say, ‘Right, outside!'”
She explained further, “When you return, the atmosphere has changed completely. Louise would take off on her bike by herself, and James is a very self-motivated person, so it was never a struggle."
Lady Louise is 'a lot more fortunate' than her cousins, for this touching reason—living so near to her beloved grandmother at Windsor. The proximity of the Wessex residence at Bagshot Park to Windsor Castle is mutually beneficial, and there's no doubt that when the Queen was visited by Lady Louise during her recent health woes, her spirits were lifted.
