Lady Louise Windsor’s Balmoral break this year will be particularly poignant.
LADY LOUISE WINDSOR’S trip to Balmoral this year with Queen Elizabeth II will be especially poignant for the young princess.
On August 9, Her Majesty arrived to Balmoral Castle for her annual summer break, and the Wessexes are usually the first to arrive. Prince Edward, 57, and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 56, were the first royals to visit the Queen and Prince Philip in the Scottish castle in 2020. Lady Louise, on the other hand, would benefit much from a trip to Scotland this year.
This was Her Majesty’s first visit to the Scottish castle since Philip’s death.
The Duke of Edinburgh passed away on April 9th, at the age of 99, and was laid to rest on April 17th at Windsor Castle.
According to palace insiders, the Wessex royals have remained close to Her Majesty since the Duke’s death and may be the first to visit this year.
After their visit last year, a royal insider told the Sun, “The Queen likes the fact that Louise and James enjoy their time in Balmoral.” “She has developed a special bond with Louise, who appears to be her favorite granddaughter, closely followed by James…
“Louise also earned everyone’s love by looking after William and Kate’s children when they were up here.
“Because of her evident artistic aptitude, the Queen invited Louise to go through some of Queen Victoria’s Highlands sketches, which are preserved at Balmoral but are rarely pulled up these days.”
Louise adored her grandfather Philip and honored him by driving his carriage at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in July.
And this year’s visit, which will be Philip’s first without him, will be especially meaningful for him.
Philip was able to watch his granddaughter compete in the Royal Windsor Horse Show in 2019.
Lady Louise has received a number of special and distinctive presents from the Duke, including his two Fell horses, Balmoral Nevis and Notlaw Storm, and a dark green four-wheeled carriage.
During Philip’s funeral, the carriage was seen carrying the Duke’s cap, whip, and brown gloves.
Lady Louise, like the Queen, adores horseback riding. She rode with Prince Edward to honor Her Majesty’s 90th birthday in 2016.
“I honestly trail in her wake,” Sophie said last year, praising her daughter’s abilities.
“She possesses a natural aptitude for.” News from the Brinkwire
