That's very exciting. I'm happy that the Royal Windsor Horse Show is back in 2021!

I imagine that the Queen was very, very happy to hear this bit of news. The Royal Windsor Horse Show is something she looks forward to yearly along with Ascot week.

Today, July 4, is the final day of this year's Royal Windsor Horse Show, Queen Elizabeth attended again and the Countess of Wessex and Lady Louse were seen carriage driving. The Countess of Wessex used the Duke of Edinburgh's carriage:

Lady Louise took part in a carriage driving event at the Royal Windsor Horse show today. She drove a carriage that previously belonged to Prince Philip.

She looks really great.

is it just the lack of good pics or was the show really not well attended by the RF this year? We normally have the Princess Royal and her family. I must admit we haven't see the Cambridges ever at RWHS and the Yorks haven't come since they were children.
Usually the whole Rhys Jones family is there in force was well - but maybe the pics just aren't showing them.

Did Sophie compet as well as Louise?

How many carriages did the duke have as his 'main' one was inherited by his granddaughter who was riding it today. Her mother was riding next her in a different (less modern) one.

Sophie said that she wasn't really good at carriage driving, so she gave it up when she had children - but great to see that she picked it up again. Not sure whether only those competing can come in or that it is partly a 'parade' and partly 'competition'.

In the final picture in this Tatler piece Louise is driving next to her mother in the carriage that her mother was previously driving (so, not Philip's competitive carriage).

Edit: looked up the program and results. It looks like both of them participated in the 'The Champagne Laurent-Perrier Meet of the British Driving Society – Return from Drive' - which doesn't sound like a competition; there aren't results available either. Maybe Louise also participated in "CAIO4* Land Rover International Driving Grand Prix - Presentation of Overall Individual Awards (Horse Four-in-Hand)"

Edit 2: This is what the driving competition existed of.

Quote:
The Land Rover International Driving Grand Prix is one of the most important driving events in the UK and is also a FEI World CupTM qualifier. There are three stages to the competition. The Driven Dressage involves the team driving a set series of movements and takes place on the Thursday and Friday of the Show. The Marathon Stage takes place on the Saturday; this challenging stage requires the competitors to drive at speed around eight obstacles and is one of our most popular parts of the competition. The final stage is the Cone Driving on Sunday where teams drive through narrowly spaced pairs of cones in a set time.
However, I don't see Louise's name in the results list (I assume she couldn't participate because of school duties). There were very few participants it seems - or very few are included in this category of national entries? See events 86 to 89 and 132 on the national results page; but a few of her horses did participate.

Well, I'm certainly not too proud to admit that I might have shed a tear when I saw these photos of Louise not only driving Philip's carriage but wearing his jacket. What a beautiful connection these two shared.

Although they were close, it was later pointed out that it was not his jacket.
