Lady Louise Windsor is on the verge of making a major decision as she approaches her 18th birthday.
As the young royal celebrates her 18th birthday today, she must make a major decision about her future.
Lady Louise, who is in her senior year of high school, celebrates her 18th birthday today.
Countess of Wessex, the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie, is now eligible to vote and purchase alcohol, but she must make a major decision because she is a member of the Royal Family.
She must choose whether or not to use the HRH title to which she is entitled.
Her parents decided against bestowing HRH titles on their children from birth, preferring instead to give them a normal childhood.
Louise and her brother James, Viscount of Severn, are referred to as “earl’s children.”
Last year, her mother told the Sunday Times that they wanted Louise and James to grow up knowing that they would “very likely” have to work for a living.
“As a result, we decided against using HRH titles,” she explained.
They have them and can decide to use them as soon as they turn 18, but I doubt it.”
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, Louise’s cousins, have retained their titles and continue to serve in the Royal Family as working members.
Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, Louise’s cousins, do not have titles because, according to tradition, only the father can pass on a title, and their father Mark Phillips declined one when he married Princess Anne.
Louise, the 16th in line to the throne, is completing her A-Levels, and Sophie told the newspaper that she hopes her daughter will attend university.
“She’s working hard and intends to pursue A-Levels,” she explained.
I’m hoping she enrolls in college.
“I wouldn’t push her, but if she wants to, she can.”
She’s quite astute.”
Sophie did not go to university and instead pursued a career in public relations. Edward studied history at Jesus College, Cambridge.
In 2002, three years after her marriage to Edward, she became a full-time working royal.
Due to the absence of Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, royal expert Howard Hodgson encouraged Louise to take on the HRH titles, saying that there is a “gap” for her to take on royal duties if she wishes.
“I would if I were her,” he said.
“She’s not going to get any brownie points for not doing it,” he added.
