On April 9, 2022, it has been exactly one year since Prince Philip died. On the first anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, the British royal family shared a moving poem on Instagram. This is the melancholic poem The Patriarchs – An Elegy written by Simon Armitage. The poem is read by the author himself and serves as background music, with the sound of a piano, for a video montage. The video is made up of many photos retracing the life of the late husband of Queen Elizabeth II who died at 99 years old. The death of Prince Philip was a great loss for the entire British royal family.
For her part, Lady Louise, 18, paid tribute to her grandfather on April 9, 2022. Very close to her grandfather, the Duke’s last granddaughter inherited a very special passion from him. Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor rode in her carriage as a tribute to Prince Philip. The youngest daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie of Wessex was particularly close to her grandfather. This taught him the equestrian discipline of driving. “Lady Louise takes part in competitions from time to time,” says Histoires Royales.
Prince Philip’s granddaughter could become a real princess
To pay tribute to her grandfather on the weekend of April 9, Lady Louise took a tour not far from the Windsor estate. Her mum, the Countess of Wessex, was seen with her. Lady Louise of Mountbatten-Windsor turned 18 in November last year. Thus, since November 2018, the last of the granddaughters of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip could change her name. Indeed, Lady Louise currently bears the surname of the descendants of Elizabeth II: Mountbatten-Windsor. According to the rule for conferring the title, on her majority Lady Louise “is able to apply to bear the title of Princess of the United Kingdom”, reports Histoires Royales.
