The royal teen, who was one of Prince William and Princess Kate’s bridesmaids in 2011, showed she was fully in control of the red and black carriage — which the Queen was first seen riding in the 1940s along with little sister, Princess Margaert.


Like proud parents everywhere, Louise’s father Edward was seen taking photos of his daughter on his cellphone. She was also proudly watched by her grandfather, Prince Philip, who despite announcing his retirement from public life recently, is still taking part in the sport.

The royal, who turns 96 next month, was back in the saddle a couple of times last week at the horse show.

Last week, Philip opened up about his love of carriage riding, joking about how he “didn’t manage the obstacles very well.”
