I think the blazer was part of her riding habit and she was going to be a grannys for the horse show and wanted to show she had the real goods. overall i thought she looked great - with really long legs :)

People get worked up over the strangest things. As someone who has worked around horses I think Louise looked perfect. She's 11, she's playing with her young cousins, she's at a horse show... what the heck is the problem?!?!?!?!?

I have the same question with you. What the problem?

Apparently some people have just discovered what equestrian clothings look like...

I love both looks. Estelle's outfit is very beautiful.

No, you are by no means the only one. As stated earlier, Beatrice and Eugenie's teenage years were a media nightmare and, if you think the press is nasty now, they were poison then. How those girls survived without developing eating disorders or stress-induced depression I will never know, but I think it came down to positive parenting by Sarah and Andrew.

Sophie and Edward learned from their experience and, for the most part, we only see Louise at family photo ops. Easter, Trooping of the Colour, etc. and Sophie has taken pains to ensure that Louise is only ever dressed in a recognised royal old fashioned way. White tights and Mary Janes? I wonder how they manage to even get her to wear them but, I have a suspicion that both she and her parents see them as a sort of disguise. She wears them "On Parade" and dresses like a kid her own age when there are no cameras around. The longer she is perceived as a child, the longer her childhood will be.

It is worth noting that the press article was quite positive and referred to Lady Louise as a kid happy playing with her 'cousins'.
To me, the fact that people think that Louise is dressed "too young" or "too old" just highlights the fact that, at 11, she's in those tricky "tween" years where she's no longer a (young) child and not yet a teenager. She also seems to have gone through a growth spurt recently. For many girls, that can just be a tough age for buying clothes, because frequently you're growing out of children's sizes, and yet clothes that are big enough might be too mature. And, of course, many girls start to assert themselves more with regard to fashion at that age (I remember one Easter when I was about 10 or 12 and having quite a battle with my mother because I'd finally had enough of the traditional girly Easter dresses and hair bows that she always had me wear, and I insisted on wearing something a tad more grown up and stylish. At the time I thought she was just being annoying, but now I better understand her protective instinct.) Sometimes I look back at pictures of myself at that age and cringe a bit at what was clearly an attempt at finding a style identity. So, personally, when I see girls that age, I tend to feel a bit sympathetic rather than critical about what they're wearing, because usually they and their parents are all just doing the best they can. Luckily, Louise seems to be a happy, confident girl no matter what she's wearing, and I hope that continues.

The baby Swedish princesses both looked exquisite at the Banns ceremony.
Marie-Chantal seems to be the go-to place for dress up children's clothing and I must say she has some beautiful things.

Estelle is a dream child.

^^^ Marie-Chantal is definitely a favourite with the royal mothers. Lady Louise has worn Marie-Chantal things as well as the Swedes.

I love that the Princesses wore the same jacket, what a nice touch. Their shoes were also lovely.

I think Louise looked great at the horse show. The outfit is appropriate and comfortable for running around with her cousins. I don't think it's aging her in the least. Girls her age can be seen wearing things that are a lot more 'grown up', and I'm happy to see her leaning towards a more classy and conservative look. I loved the blazer too. It gave the whole look a more sophisticated touch. The two Swedish princesses looked precious in their little outfits. I love seeing Estelle with longer hair.

They both look lovely, but with that white frock it looks like it is Sofìa the one who has to receive the Communion!

I thought the same Marty91charmed. Leonor is wearing a tiny rosary around her neck today in addition to her school uniform.

Which IMO was the right decision for Leonor. She was with her friends and their families for this special day plus had a family celebration at home.

I see nothing inappropriate with what Louise is wearing she is dressed for a horse event she appears to be comfortable and having a good time. Inappropriate is what we have in America ll year old in booty shorts, crop tops looking 20 instead of looking like an 11 year old. She is dressed in a traditional way very nice.

I have read that Lady Louise is a good horsewoman already and that she has ridden with the Queen, as have most of the other grandchildren. She was wearing riding clothes, including the blazer!

Lady Louise looked appropriate given the setting. My goodness, she's almost as tall as Sophie!!

Leonore and Sofia at Leonor's communion both look sweet. I'm guessing Leonore is in her school uniform because communion took place at school/during school?!?!

Leonor and Sofia look lovely, as usual. I love Sofia's dress.
