All the ~Royal Details~ on the Queen's Favorite Grandchild Lady Louise Windsor
Wondering why she's a Lady and not a Princess? SAME.
She (Probably) Won't Go By"HRH"HRH stands for Her/His Royal Highness, and while Edward and Sophie's kids are entitled to use it when they turn 18, they're likely won't. Sophie toldThe Sunday Times:“We try to bring them up with the understanding that they are very likely to have to work for a living. Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles. They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but it’s highly unlikely.”
She's the Last Royal to Wear the ~ORIGINAL~ Christening GownWhy is this important, you ask? Honestly it isn't, unless you're weirdly into the lore of this old white nightgown the royals have been passing onto their bbs.The original gown was made for Queen Victoria in 1841, and was used until Queen Elizabeth decided it was too fragile and made a replica. Here's Prince Louis wearing said replica at his christening:

A source toldThe Sun:“The Queen loves the fact that Louise and James relish their time at Balmoral, and she has become particularly close to Louise, who seems to have become her favourite grandchild, closely followed by James. Louise also endeared herself to everyone by looking after William and Kate’s children when they were up here. Louise loves drawing and sketching and was very patiently trying to get Charlotte to do pictures of rabbits and deer. Because of her obvious artistic skill, the Queen allowed Louise to look through some of the collection of Queen Victoria’s Highlands sketches which are kept at Balmoral but are rarely dug out these days.” headtopics.com
