Lady Louise Wessex is set to decide whether she wants the title of princess in a few weeks’ time. The Queen’s ‘favourite grandchild’, who is the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, will decide if she wants the title of princess when she turns 18.

Lady Louise is 16th in line to the throne and enjoyed a close bond with her late grandfather, The Duke of Edinburgh due to their shared love of carriage driving.

The 17-year-old whose full name is Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mountbatten-Windsor recently shared memories of her late grandfather in Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, a programme that was aired on the BBC. The documentary included interviews with the royal family to commemorate the late Duke.

When Prince Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Sussex wed in 1999, Buckingham Palace announced their children would not be styled as prince or princess. Louise and her brother James, Viscount Severn are titles as children of an earl.

It is believed that Edward and Sophie made this decision to ensure their children led as normal a childhood as possible.

The couple are reported to be leaving the decision to Louise on whether she should take the title of princess when she turns 18. If she does opt for it, she will be styled as Her Royal Highness Princess Louise.

Lady Louise Windsor’s cousins Beatrice and Eugenie do style themselves as HRH, whereas Princess Anne’s children Zara Tindall and Pete Phillips have never held HRH status.

Royal expert Phil Dampier believes that as Louise becomes an adult, she could become the monarchy’s ‘secret weapon.’ “Because she’s the granddaughter of the Queen, Lady Louise can call herself a princess when she becomes 18. and there’s a strong argument for her doing it,” he said.

According to Phil Dampier, Lady Louise is “very mature for her age and she’s shaping up to be precisely the kind of person the Queen can rely on in the future.”

Like her late grandfather, The Duke of Edinburgh, Lady Louise Windsor has competed in carriage-driving competitions. She recently drove his carriage in a touching tribute at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Her parents, Prince Edward and the Countess on Wessex were there to watch and support her.
