Lady Louise Windsor followed in the footsteps of her late grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, on Sunday.

The young royal will no doubt have made her family proud as she took part in the Royal Windsor Horse Show in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The 17-year-old is a keen carriage rider like her grandfather, and she drove Prince Philip's carriage again as she participated in the Champagne Laurent-Perrier Meet of the British Driving Society.

Wearing a smart green outfit with matching hat, Louise wore her hair swept up off her face and beamed as she drove around the grounds.

The 17-year-old looked confident as she took the reins during the horse show on Sunday.
