Who is Lady Louise Windsor?
Lady Louise, who sits 14th in line to the throne, is the daughter of the Queen’s youngest child, Prince Edward, and his wife, Sophie Rhys-Jones.
Lady Louise was born prematurely on 8 November 2003 at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey and was delivered by emergency Caesarean section.
She was born with ocular esotropia and underwent a procedure to correct her vision at 18 months, which failed and was repeated in 2014.
She attended school in Windsor before moving to a school in Ascot near her parents’ home, Bagshot Park.
The Wessex family, which also includes Louise’s 11-year-old brother James, Viscount Severn, is believed to be close to the Queen and her late husband Philip.
A royal insider said: “The Queen loves that Louise and James are enjoying their time at Balmoral, and she has become particularly close to Louise, who seems to have become her favorite granddaughter, followed closely by James.
“Louise also endeared herself to everyone by caring for William and Kate’s children when they were here.
“Louise loves to draw and sketch and was very patiently trying to get Charlotte to do pictures of bunnies and deer.”
