Lady Louise Windsor to make big decision in WEEKS about her royal future – “Very mature” | Royal | New
Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mountbatten-Windsor, who is currently 16th to the throne, is expected to make a life-changing decision about her future with the royal family in time for her 18th birthday in November.
When her parents Prince Edward and Sophie got married in 1999, it was decided that their children would not be known as a prince or princess.
However, The Telegraph reported that the final decision on whether Louise will take the title of princess will be left to Louise when she turns 18 on November 8.
Her parents, Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, would have left the decision to Louise to make.
Speaking in the wake of the BBC documentary on Prince Philip, royal expert Phil Dampier said Louise could become the royal family’s “secret weapon”.
He said: “Because she is the Queen’s granddaughter, Lady Louise can consider herself a princess at the age of 18… and there is a strong case for her to do so.
“She appears to be very mature for her age, and she is shaping up to be precisely the kind of person the Queen can count on in the future.
“Could there be a role for her in a lean monarchy?” The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh together had 1,500 patronages.
“You must be wondering who will continue their legacy, with Harry, Meghan and Prince Andrew off the stage? There is a huge workload there.
If she decides to have the new title, she will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Louise.
However, not all of the Queen’s grandchildren hold RHS status.
Princess Anne’s two children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, do not have HRH status.
Lady Louise was recently praised for her involvement in the documentary on BBC One to commemorate the life of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, who tragically died a few months before his 100th birthday on April 9.
