Lady Louise Windsor made her television debut in the BBC’s new Prince Philip documentary and fans were quick to praise the teenage royal’s heartfelt appearance.
- Lady Louise Windsor featured alongside her parents, cousins and aunt and uncles in Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers to recount memories of her late grandfather.
- Royal fans were especially excited to see her join the wider Royal Family for this insightful BBC special.
- This royal news comes as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is set to include a magnificent tribute to her favorite passion.
Lady Louise Windsor might be one of the youngest of the Queen’s grandchildren, but she has now made her television debut in the new Prince Philip documentary, much to the delight of fans. The BBC special gave viewers a unique insight into the life of the longest serving consort in British history. Not only were filmmakers given access to meet the Duke of Edinburgh’s staff and go inside Buckingham Palace, but over a dozen Royal Family members came together to share their memories of him.
One such royal was Lady Louise, who had not appeared in the teaser clip, which saw Prince William and Prince Harry pay tribute to their grandfather. Lady Louise is understood to have had an especially close relationship with Prince Philip. She not only shared his love of carriage driving, but also took part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Opening up in the Prince Philip documentary, she explained, “There was certainly an element of making my grandfather proud and honouring him by taking part in the award that has been so much of his life's work. I definitely hope I have made him proud.”
Lady Louise also went on to discuss how he inspired her love of carriage driving, a sport she suggested he “pretty much” invented.
“The Duke of Edinburgh has been so involved in my driving which has been so lovely although slightly scary because he invented the sport pretty much,” she said.
“It's incredible to have learned first hand from him. After a competition, he would always ask how it went. His eyes would light up because he just gets so excited when he talks about it.”
Lady Louise added, "When we would go carriage driving, he would take me on a different route every day, I do not know how he managed to do that, and tell me all sorts of anecdotes about anything and everything."
“He is honestly one of the most interesting people I have ever met,” she declared.
Now Lady Louise’s wonderful insights and approach to the interview have been met with support and delight from royal fans.
“Lady Louise is coming across as the Royal Family's secret weapon #PrincePhilip”, one royal fan declared, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the documentary.
