'A bit scary!' Lady Louise opens up on childhood experience as a royal in candid admission

The Queen’s granddaughter, 17, made a rare appearance in front of the cameras as she joined leading members of the Royal Family to share special memories of the Duke of Edinburgh. The landmark BBC documentary titled Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, aired on Wednesday night and featured interviews with Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

Prince Philip’s adult grandchildren, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Peter Philips and Zara Tindall also shared their intimate tales about his life spanning 99 years.

Lady Louise was the youngest member of the family to take part in the documentary and spoke of the influence her grandfather had on her carriage driving.

In a heartfelt moment, the teenage daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, described his involvement as “so lovely, although slightly scary”.

Lady Louise said: “The Duke of Edinburgh has been so involved in my driving which has been so lovely, although slightly scary because he invented the sport pretty much.

“It’s incredible to have learned first hand from him.”

Lady Louise, much like her grandparents, has a huge passion for equestrian and regularity takes part in competitions.

The teenager described how Prince Philip’s “eyes would light up” when they discussed how the events went and said the pair would then go out practising.

She said: “After a competition, he would always ask how it went. His eyes would light up because he just gets so excited when he talks about it.

“When we would go carriage driving, he would take me on a different route every day, I do not know how he managed to do that, and tell me all sorts of anecdotes about anything and everything.

“He is honestly one of the most interesting people I have ever met.”

The Duke of Edinburgh passed away in April, just two months shy of his 100th birthday.
