‘Emotional’ moment Queen’s face lit up when she saw Lady Louise getting into Philip’s carriage | royal | News

Lady Louise, 18, was among the performers at the first major event to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. The Queen was seen emotional as her granddaughter led a parade of horses in a carriage owned by the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Speaking on Good Morning Britiain about the touching moment, ITV News royal editor Chris Ship said: “You have just brought attention to the moment Lady Louise Windsor, the daughter of Edward and Sophie, rode into the arena in the carriage bequeathed to her by the Duke of Edinburgh.

“No wonder the Queen looks a little emotional at times.”

The Queen proudly watched Lady Louise enter the arena.

The tribute was a fitting way to honor the late Duke as the Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne after a year of mourning for her husband.

The 18-year-old, the eldest of the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, inherited her love of carriage driving from her late grandfather, Prince Philip.

Carriage driving was one of Prince Philip’s favorite pastimes.

In May 2017, Prince Philip opened up about how he started driving a car when he quit playing polo at the age of 50.

Prince Philip died in April 2021.

Prince Philip’s funeral took place last April at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The world was moved after footage emerged from the funeral showing the Queen sitting alone and wearing a mask.

The funeral took place during the third national lockdown, meaning only 30 people attended.


On March 29, almost a year after his death, a memorial service for the late Duke was held at Westminster Abbey.

The service brought together nearly 2,000 people.

The guest included members of the royal family, more than 30 foreign royals and 500 representatives of charities and organizations of which he was the patron.
