The Earl of Wessex and Lady Louise Windsor enjoyed a father-daughter day as they went horse riding in Windsor on Saturday. Prince Edward, 55, and Lady Louise, 16, chatted as they rode around the grounds of Windsor Castle. The pair were wrapped up against the cold in their riding gear with the Queen's youngest son wearing a brown wax jacket and a red helmet, while her youngest granddaughter donned a red padded jacket and protective headwear.

Edward and wife Sophie recently enjoyed a family ski holiday in the Swiss ski resort of St Moritz while Lady Louise and their son James, Viscount Severn, 12, were both off from school during February half-term. The Wessexes keep their children largely out of the spotlight, aside from formal family events such as Trooping the Colour and royal weddings. The family-of-four currently live at Bagshot Park in Surrey and Edward and Sophie celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary last year.
