Louise is definitely a beautiful young lady, and she definitely resembles her father's side of the family. I love her hair. It suits her complexion quite nicely. Hopefully, she won't need to start dying it for a while.

My daughter has the exact same hair color at Louise - very fair as a child and darkening a bit to honey blonde. She's now 26 and the same honey-blonde with no chemical assistance whatsoever.

That one picture of Louise and her Dad walking side by side....She's just past his shoulder now!?! When I think back to Sandringham and last Christmas and see her now...

What a change. She's w/out a doubt entered her Teenage years and growing into a lovely young lady.

I love that picture of her, Autumn, Zara and Mia. As was said, you know you've entered Adulthood when... :)

Lady Louise is only 11. She will be 12 in November. So, not a teenager until November of 2016. She really is a beautiful little girl.

As a matter of fact, Princess Amalia, Princess of Orange, is almost the exact same age. Princess Amalia will be 12 in December.

She is technically a tween... A young girl too old for toys but too young for boys :) But Princess Amalia and her don't seem the same age to me and I can't put my finger on why exactly.

To me one, Louise, has been allowed to be a little girl and grow up slowly while Amalia has seen like a teenager for two to three years already meaning that to me she has been allowed to grow up too fast. One has grown slowly into the 11 she is now - as girls used to do in the 1950s and 1960s while the other has been rushed to be grown up, as is the current fashion.

And I think he seems to look more specifically like Sophie the older he gets (though he sometimes looks a bit like Edward, too).
It's nice to see more pictures of Louise and James as they're growing up, but now I almost feel like they're growing up too quickly - every time I see a picture of Louise, I think "there's no way she can be so grown up now - I must be getting old!"
James – he did look adorable.
Sophie Rhys Jones 1966 - I think James looks more like Sophie than Edward. James looked a lot like Sophie as a toddler.
Sophie Rhys Jones - I think he looks a lot like her there. He also has her dimples!
He definitely looks like Sophie's youngest nephew Harry Rhys-Jones Harry Rhys-Jones

Louise, Amalia and Ingrid-Alexandra were all born one month apart. Their mums were all part of the 2003 Royal Baby Boom!

I would say this is very true – Amalia has grown up a lot rather quickly, but that’s perhaps because of what her future holds. Louise will of course not have ANY of the responsibility that Amalia has, so Louise has been able to be a “normal” child which has been very lucky for her. I have to say even her cousins Beatrice and Eugenie had a very different childhood to Louise. Sophie and Edward did Louise right in keeping her younger years very private, although I have to say that both Louise and James deal with the photographers extremely well considering they have not always been photographed by the press. Their parents have brought them up well so far.

I agree with you Molly that there is a difference between Amalia and Louise that appears to be related to Amalia being the PoO while Louise is far down in the BRF line of succession.

Earl and Countess of Wessex and Family Current Events 9: March 2015

Tried to delete after realizing I should have read further down the thread and I couldn't, so did it the old fashioned way. If the Mods could take care of this please and thank you!?!

Children develop at their own pace and to assume someone has been rushed to grow up too fast is just speculating. They both seem within what could be considered normal for their ages. Some kids are just "grown up" early while other never grow up. I am sure both girls are just where they are supposed to be.

Amalia to me seems like all other girls just going to highschool here in the Netherlands. No premature growing up.

How nice that she took Louise to the engagement with her! Seems like they were having fun. However, I'd like to direct an eye roll to the Daily Mail for making the story about the price of Sophie's dress (which I'm pretty sure she's worn several times before), rather than the fact that it was a nice mother-daughter outing. Typical Daily Mail.

Such a misleading title from the Daily Mail as it sounds like Sophie took Louise to play hockey privately, not on an official engagement. Sophie was there as Patron and to give out the awards at the end, she couldn't exactly rock up in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. She would have been ridiculed for that and for being too "casual".

Lovely to see Louise with her mum - being a royal child has to have some perks, eh!

Ι agree. The only thing worth commenting on is the fact that it was a fine day for the countess who went with her daughter. Everything else

Yeah, I notice the DM conveniently didn't include any pictures of the medal ceremony, which make it quit clear that it was an official engagement. It's not like Sophie and Louise just turned up at the local park and started playing hockey. However, given that the Daily Mail did an article on the cost of Sophie's wardrobe a few weeks ago, I'm guessing that's an angle they'll be sticking with for a while.

It's really nice to see that Louise and James seem to increasingly accompany their parents to events, when appropriate.

I agree - I think it's great that Louise and James are seen with their parents more now. I was particularly thrilled to see them in South Africa with them on an engagement that coincided with a family holiday. Louise is getting so grown up and so like Edward!

I think the dress is alright, but nothing special. That was part of the reason I found it odd/funny that the Daily Mail were making a fuss over the the price of the dress, because I was thinking "oh gosh, she's worn that dress plenty of times, I'm bored with it already!"

I think seeing Louise out and about more is likely less to do with her own self-confidence (she's never seemed particularly shy), and more to do with age. We don't see James quite as much yet, and he certainly seems like a confident little guy, but very energetic. Presumably they try not to bring the kids along if there's a chance they might get too bored (because that has happened).
