After putting in a rare public appearance at Trooping the Colour on Saturday, it was business as usual for Lady Louise Windsor as she took part in a carriage driving competition in Windsor on Sunday.

The young royal, 20, was supported by her mother, the Duchess of Edinburgh, who appeared to be giving tips to her daughter as she took part in the event.

Lady Louise, who is currently studying at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, has followed in her late grandfather Prince Philip's footsteps with her passion for the sport.

Dressed casually in a navy fleece with grey skinny jeans and a red and blue striped helmet, Lady Louise smiled at her proud mother as drove the carriage alongside her navigator on the back.

Sophie and Lady Louise's outing came the day after the pair shared a carriage during the King's birthday parade in London, where Prince Edward rode horseback.

The Duchess wowed in a lemon Beulah London ensemble, while Lady Louise repeated a silk floral dress from Suzannah London, previously worn to her uncle Charles' coronation in May 2023.

The mother and daughter duo sheltered from torrential rain under the cover in their carriage as the heavens opened up when the royals made their way back to Buckingham Palace from Horse Guards Parade for the flypast.

Lady Louise joined her parents on the balcony to watch the spectacular military finale as the Red Arrows filled the air with streams of red, white and blue.

Brother James, 16, did not join the celebrations, with the reason thought to be because of the GCSE exam period at school.

Lady Louise has made very few public appearances with the royal family this year amid her second year at university, where she is studying English.
