Queen’s favourite grandchild Lady Louise will bring some light on Remembrance Sunday

THE ROYAL FAMILY attended events in honour of Remembrance Day in the past week, but what reason did the family have to celebrate rather than commemorate this week?

The Royal Family are now due to return to working virtually. The last in-person engagement some members of the Royal Family are expected to conduct before lockdown ends in December is the Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph. Senior members of the Royal Family and Queen Elizabeth II are expected to attend the ceremony, but why will Lady Louise Windsor bring a smile to her family members on Sunday, November 8?

Senior members of the Royal Family and the Queen are expected to attend the annual national ceremony on Remembrance Sunday.

The event will be private for the first time however due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s event will be held at the Cenotaph in London.

The Remembrance Day service will be limited to a few senior members of the Royal Family, a few politicians and military leaders.

The event will be held on November 8 and there will be no public participation at the event.

Sophie and Prince Edward paid a virtual visit to Devon on Thursday, November 5.

The Countess of Wessex was wearing a poppy pin in honour of Remembrance Day.

She also wore this pin at the All Souls Day service at Westminster Abbey on November 2.

The service was undertaken in remembrance of all those who died amid the pandemic.

This year Remembrance Sunday will take place on Lady Louise Windsor’s 17th birthday.

Lady Louise Windsor is the eldest child of Prince Edward and Sophie Countess of Wessex.

She is also the Queen and Prince Philip’s youngest granddaughter.

The monarch is known to have a close relationship with the Wessexes and Louise and James are believed to be her favourite grandchildren.

This is believed to be, in part, because they “relish” their time at Balmoral with her.

Lady Louise was born on November 8, 2003, at Frimley Park Hospital.

She is currently 13th in line to the throne behind her younger brother James, Viscount Severn.

Last year the Wessex family celebrated Lady Louise’s 16th birthday privately.

However, for her 15th birthday in 2018, the Countess of Wessex took her daughter on a special night out to watch Strictly Come Dancing.

Lady Louise is an AS-Level student at a private girls school in Ascot.

She entered the sixth form to study English, History, Politics and Drama in September.

Earlier this year, her mother Sophie told The Sunday Times: “She’s working hard and will do A-levels. I hope she goes to university.

“I wouldn’t force her, but if she wants to. She’s quite clever.”

Royal experts have long-claimed Lady Louise is the Queen’s favourite grandchild.

Many claim this is due to their shared love of horse riding with the pair often photographed riding together.

The royal insider told The Sun: “Louise also endeared herself to everyone by looking after William and Kate’s children when they were up there.

“Louise loves drawing and sketching and was very patiently trying to get Charlotte to do pictures of rabbits and deer.”
