Royal revelation: How Lady Louise ‘had no concept’ her grandmother was the Queen

Louise, whose father is the Queen’s youngest child Prince Edward, is said to be the Queen’s favourite grandchild. However, she was apparently oblivious of her grandmother’s role until she was around five years old and started school. It was then that other children started telling her that her grandmother is the Queen.

Her mother Sophie said she came home and asked her about it, saying she did not understand what they meant.

The Countess revealed this adorable information in an interview with her husband, the Earl of Wessex, talking to Sky News’ Rhiannon Mills about the Queen before her 90th birthday.

Rhiannon had been asking Edward when he himself had realised what his mother really did.

She asked the Earl: “When, as a child, did it dawn on you just what a significant part your mother had to play in national life?

“Do you remember as a child thinking ‘Gosh, look at what my mother has achieved, look at what she does’?”

Edward replied: “I can’t necessarily remember when that realisation was there, because when you grow up in that family and in that environment that’s just what your parents do.

“It’s been much more interesting seeing our children growing up and watching our children trying to work out what that is and how that works – and probably not until five or six I think.”

This is when Sophie chimed in with the sweet anecdote about their daughter Louise, who was born in 2003.

She said: “Louise had no concept, really, that the Queen and her grandmother were one and the same person.

“It wasn’t until she was at school where other children were mentioning and saying ‘Your grandmother’s the Queen.’

“She’d come home and say ‘Mummy, they say that Grandmama is the Queen.’

“And I said ‘yes’ and she said ‘I don’t understand what they mean.’”

Lady Louise is now 15 years old and attends St Mary’s School Ascot, a Catholic girls’ school in Berkshire.

Sophie explained in the interview that her children are “more fortunate” than other royal grandchildren, because they live closer to the Queen.

She said that because of this they actually see “quite a lot of” the 93-year-old monarch.

The Countess explained that when the Queen is in Windsor they spent “most weekends” having tea with her or riding in the grounds.

She told Rhiannon: “I think having those times together in the summer allows those relationships.

“We’re a lot more fortunate because we live so much closer to the Queen.

“So when she spends a lot of time at Windsor at weekends our children are more fortunate, because they can go over and have tea with her on a regular basis.

“So we do see quite a lot of her and we’re over there most weekends riding, so she sees quite a lot of us. Lucky her!”

Not only is Louise reportedly the Queen’s favourite grandchild, but Sophie is allegedly her favourite daughter-in-law.

She married Edward in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in 1999.

This was a break from the weddings of the older royal siblings, who enjoyed large, formal events at Westminster Abbey or St Paul’s Cathedral.

Although Louise and their son James are entitled to be styled with Royal Highness titles, they have instead been styled as the children of an earl, rather than as prince or princess.

Louise is always referred to as Lady Louise Windsor in court communications, and her younger brother James is referred to as Viscount Severn, one of his father’s subsidiary titles.
