Lady Louise Windsor is by no means the most famous royal of her generation - after all, she has to contend with the likes of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
But through the years this 18-year-old English rose has proven time and again that she's not one to be underestimated.
Having inherited beauty and poise from her mother Sophie, Countess of Wessex and good humour (as well as blue blood!) from her father Prince Edward, it should come as no surprise that Louise is already making a name for herself.
This Real-Life ‘Thelma and Louise’ Caused Mayhem Wherever They Went
Thelma and Louise, in the movie of the same name, didn’t plan to commit murder, robbery, and arson when they took off on a weekend road trip. One thing led to another and it just sort of happened. Four years later, two women in Texas would become equally notorious for a crime spree that had such clear echoes of the iconic silver-screen duo that newspapers as far away as the U.K. would refer to them as the “Real-Life ‘Thelma and Louise.’” The one big difference: their felonious jaunt targeting men was a little more planned, at least at first.
WATCH: Lady Louise had no idea her grandmother was the Queen
Born in 2003, the young royal made her global debut when she was just eight at Prince William's wedding in 2011, serving as a bridesmaid to new cousin Catherine.
While she carries no HRH title and her parents have raised her and brother James, Viscount Severn away from the spotlight, Louise is widely regarded as a royal up-and-comer.
"We try to bring them up with the understanding that they are very likely to have to work for a living," Sophie told the Sunday Times.
Now that she's an adult, Louise is joining her parents for more royal outings than ever and we can't get enough of her.

Lady Louise Windsor arrived four weeks premature via emergency caesarean after Sophie was rushed to hospital. The Countess of Wessex came close to death after losing more than five litres of blood to internal bleeding. Fortunately both mother and daughter came through.
Meghan Markle's half-brother says the Sussexes should 'stay out of politics'
Thomas Markle Jr, 56, (pictured) criticised Meghan for not contacting their father after he suffered a stroke in May which left him hospitalised for five days. Their father, Thomas Markle Sr, 77, lost his speech in the stroke and is still recovering.He made his first public appearance since then in an exclusive video on GB News as host Dan Wooton interviewed Thomas Jr.Thomas Jr was upbeat about his father's condition, saying he was making strong progress in recovering his speech.He said: 'Dad is doing amazing.
Edwards was absent for his daughter's birth, as he was on an official visit to Mauritius at the time. Sophie recalled in 2019: "My daughter, Louise, was born prematurely and so every time I see anything to do with premature babies it takes me back to those early days."
Though she's the Queen's granddaughter and had the right to an HRH title, Sophie and Edward chose not to use it for Louise.
When Sophie and Edward married in 1999, they decided they wanted their future children to lead a normal life - opting to drop "HRH" titles, which is why Louise has the title "Lady."
And a normal childhood includes ice cream!
Louise had a squint as a child due to her premature arrival, Sophie once explaining: "Her squint was quite profound when she was tiny and it takes time to correct it. You've got to make sure one eye doesn't become more dominant than the other but she's fine now – her eyesight is perfect."
Louise made her big royal debut in 2011 at William and Catherine's royal wedding, where she was a bridesmaid. Can you spot her next to Pippa Middleton?
She rode in a carriage with cousin Prince Harry, confidently waving to the crowds as they passed.
Though she had a relatively 'normal' childhood, Louise has always had the poise and graces of a proper little royal.
From an early age, Louise was taking style cues from her fashionable mother.
Away from royal life, Louise got to enjoy activities like zoo visits and family holidays with her parents.
It's widely agreed that Louise inherited her mother's good looks, taking after Sophie in both her features and colouring.
The resemblance is impossible to deny in photos like this.
It's understood that the royal mother-daughter duo also share an incredibly close relationship. Speaking of her approach to parenting Louise and brother James, Sophie once said: "If they've had as normal a start in life they possibly can get, then hopefully that will stand them in good stead."
"It was only when she was coming home from school and saying, 'Mummy, people keep on telling me that grandma is the queen.'," Sophie said. "And I asked her, 'Yes, how does that make you feel?' And she said, 'I don't understand...' I don't think she had grasped that perhaps there was only one Queen."

When she turned 18, Louise technically had the option to adopt an HRH title - provided the Queen approved the change - but chose not to.
Louise's love of carriage riding comes from her late grandfather, Prince Philip. "The Duke of Edinburgh has been so involved in my driving which has been lovely... it's incredible to have learned first-hand from him and definitely made us closer," she said.
In 2022 she and brother James appeared for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Louise wore a hate and Jacket Sophie donned for her daughter's first Buckingham Palace balcony appearance decades earlier (see the third slide in this gallery).
Stepping out that same year, Louise wowed royal fans by how much she had grown up and blossomed into a true English rose.
Though she and James won't be working royals, meaning they will need to pursue careers of their own, we can expect to see more of them in the coming years.
