Lady Louise climbs the ranks at one of the most renowned events in horse cart racing, an interest she shared with her late grandfather. The keen equestrian is proving herself to be, 'one to watch,' in the highly competitive sport.
- Lady Louise climbs the ranks, competing in the British Indoor Driving Championships 2022.'
- She competed as, 'Louise Mountbatten-Windsor,' showing not only how down-to-earth she is, but a touching nod to her late grandfather.
- In other royal news, Queen admits COVID-19 left her ‘very tired and exhausted’ in emotional conversation with grieving patient.
Lady Louise climbs the ranks in the sport she loves, carriage driving. Competing in the junior novice class, at the event in Grantham, Lincolnshire, the young royal finished in sixth place.
The event, which was shortly after Prince Philip's memorial, shows that the second youngest of the Queen's grandchildren is a force to be reckoned with. Many say that Lady Louise is the Royal Family's, 'secret weapon,' in relation to how personable she is. However, in light of this competition and her being ranked second in her region—she may be their secret sports star too.

Not many know, however, that Lady Louise's birth marked a 'turning point' for Prince Philip, and the late Duke clearly treasured his youngest granddaughter immensely.
It's fairly obvious that Lady Louise and Prince Philip's bond was very strong, as evidenced by all their quality time together—especially in all things carriage driving. As a matter of fact, Lady Louise's poignant message to Prince Philip shows that although he's gone, their bond will always remain.
You're going to need to grab the tissues because there's another adorable nod to the late Duke, that shows she remembers him every time she competes—her surname! The down-to-earth young royal competes simply as, 'Louise Windsor-Mountbatten,' in recognition of her late grandfather.
Racing around the grounds of Windsor Castle is undoubtedly more than an interest to the young royal, but is a way to let loose too. In a year that will see Lady Louise’s life-altering decision, which Sophie Wessex says is up to her, it's fantastic that she has such a treasured outlet.
