Lady Louise Windsor was pictured arriving at Home Park on Sunday, for day four of the large-scale equestrian event. The 18-year-old took part in the British Driving Society’s Champagne Laurent-Perrier Meet.
The young royal proudly showed off her carriage driving skills in a sport that was a favorite of her late grandfather, Prince Philip.
Photographs of Lady Louise show her driving a car that previously belonged to the Duke of Edinburgh.
Snaps show the royal wearing her carriage attire comprising of a tweed blazer and maxi skirt, with two brooches fastened to the front.
One with a horse’s head nods to her and Philip’s shared passion for horse riding, in particular riding, which the teenager learned from the Duke of Edinburgh.
She sported the same accessory at her grandfather’s memorial service in March and his 30-person funeral in Windsor last year.
Reacting to the snaps, a royal fan with the username @loveforcambridg wrote, “Aw these pics are beautiful!”
@mincealors12345 described the images as “pretty” while @sarah30twig described them as “beautiful”.
@partlyc2 added, “So glad she’s filling her grandpa’s shoes. He would be so proud of her.”
Sarah Louisa Collins wrote: ‘Would love for her to continue this’ and Angela Taylor added: ‘She is growing up to be a very beautiful young woman who shows self-assurance and gentle confidence.’
Carriage driving was one of Prince Philip’s favorite pastimes and he took up the sport when he stopped playing polo at the age of 50.
Lady Louise spoke about herself and her grandfather’s shared passion during a BBC documentary called Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers
She said: “The Duke of Edinburgh has been so involved in my driving which has been so beautiful, if a bit scary because he pretty much invented the sport.
“It’s amazing to have learned directly from him.”
The Duke of Edinburgh has been credited with helping shape the sport in the UK and still competed well into the eighties.
At the age of 91, Philip had a dark green car made to his aluminum and steel specifications.
It is believed to be the same one Lady Louise was photographed driving.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, smiled proudly as she rode her own horse-drawn carriage at the event on Sunday morning.
Sophie, who is known to be close to her mother-in-law the Queen, took the reins in a carriage just behind her daughter’s.
The mother of two children wore an elegant navy velvet coat and matching hat for the occasion.
On Friday, Sophie was seen taking pictures of her daughter as she drove Philip’s horse-drawn carriage and led the Fell Pony Society Centenary Parade.
The Queen also attended the event that day and chatted animatedly with fellow festival-goers from inside a vehicle.
The 96-year-old’s arrival in a Range Rover on Friday was met with applause and cheers from onlookers.
She walked to her seat with the help of a cane and watched a parade of horses alongside her youngest son Prince Edward and his wife Sophie.
Her Majesty then looked delighted when she received a trophy after one of her Highland ponies took first place in the show.
The occasion marked the monarch’s first public appearance since missing the official opening of Parliament.
She was forced to pull out of the event due to “episodic mobility issues” and Prince Charles stepped in to read her speech instead.
