‘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.

“My favourite part was my expeditions.

“Just having that level of independence and self-sufficiency and having that sense of achievement when it was finished.”

Floyd Mayweather makes Logan Paul admission after exhibition bout goes the distance

Mayweather was widely expected to toy with the taller, heavier, less-experienced YouTuber in their eight-round exhibition bout at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

But, despite being by far the more skilled boxer in the ring on Sunday night, the undefeated legend couldn’t find the knockout punch to underscore his dominance over the dogged vlogger.

After a bout that was at times scrappy, as Paul frequently tied up Mayweather to avoid taking clean shots from close range, Mayweather admitted that the YouTube sensation had surprised him with his smarts inside the ring.

“I had fun,” he said after the bout, which had no official winner.

“You gotta realise i’m not 21 anymore, but it’s good to move around with these young guys, test my skills, just to have some fun.

“Great young fighter, tough, strong. He’s better than I thought he was.”

Mayweather said that Paul might struggle to continue his boxing career against similarly-sized fighters, but gave praise to his inexperienced opponent for putting up a tough fight in front of a huge pay-per-view audience.

“As far as with the big guys, the heavyweights, it’s gonna be kinda hard (for him),” he offered.

“But he’s a tough, rough competitor.

“It was good action, we had fun. I was surprised by him tonight.

“Good little work. Good guy. I had fun.”

Talk then turned to what might be next for Mayweather, with a potential rematch with Conor McGregor a possibility, while Paul’s younger brother, Jake, has also made no secret of his desire to step into the ring with the 50-0 legend.

But the Las Vegas native wouldn’t be drawn on his future plans as he hinted that his age may be starting to play a factor in his performances.

“I fought against a heavyweight, but I had fun,” he said.

“Even though he don’t got that much experience, he knew how to use his weight and he knew how to tie me up tonight.

“But I had fun, I’m pretty sure he had fun, and hopefully the fans enjoyed it.

“We don’t know what the future holds,” he continued.

“I’ll talk it over with my team and see where we go from here.

“You gotta realise I’ve been in this game 25 years and I understand I’m not 21, I’m not 25. But I had fun tonight.”
